This extensive toolkit, appropriate for healthcare providers and health systems administrators, provides a road map to reducing Medicaid readmissions. Sections of focus include: using your institution's Medicaid data to understand factors contributing to readmissions; assessing your current processes and matching these to best practices; systematically developing a tailored readmissions reduction approach; implementing a whole-person approach for each patient; collaborating with community partners; and providing additional services for your most high-risk patients.
