Description

This is the first national report to look at how effectively communities and hospitals coordinate care for some of their sickest patients—those leaving with hospital discharge after a stay to treat an acute or chronic illness.

This Dartmouth Atlas report reveals striking variation in 30-day readmission rates across hospital referral regions and academic medical centers. Little progress was seen in reducing readmission rates over the five-year period 2004 to 2009. In fact, for some conditions, readmission rates have increased for the nation and for many regions and hospitals. This particular dataset is on Medical cohort on the Hospital Referral Regions.
