PRAXIS members will find this Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services blog post useful in determining the trend in overall readmissions statistics between 2010 and 2015. Included in the article is a detailed figure showing readmissions totals and percentages as well as change over time, by state. Overall (non-COPD-specific) readmissions rates declined in the District of Columbia and 49 states; changes in Vermont's readmissions rates were not significant.
