Paul Barach with words 125A growing body of research reveals some promising approaches to reducing hospital readmissions. After years of gently prodding hospitals to make sure discharged patients do not need to return, the federal government is now using its financial muscle to discourage readmissions.

When a patient’s transition from the hospital to home is less than optimal, the repercussions can be far-reaching — hospital readmission, an adverse medical event, and even mortality. Without sufficient information and an understanding of their diagnoses, medication, and self-care needs, patients cannot fully participate in their care during and after hospital stays.

Additionally, poorly designed discharge processes create unnecessary stress for medical and nursing staff, causing failed communications, rework, and frustrations. A comprehensive and reliable discharge plan, along with post-discharge support, can reduce readmission rates, improve health outcomes, and ensure quality transitions.
