On September 28, 2011, The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice released a new research report on patterns of post-acute care for Medicare Beneficiaries. The report reveals striking variations in 30-day readmission rates and little progress in reducing readmissions and improving care coordination between 2004 and 2009.

This report will hold much valuable information for home health leaders who are looking at new opportunities created by the Affordable Care Act with regard to partnering with hospitals to reduce readmissions.

We just downloaded the report and have not had the opportunity to uncover all of the details. You can download the report, or wait a few days until we’ve had the opportunity to pull out the information that is most valuable for home health and hospice executives.
