Webinar on the Community-Based Approach to Reducing Hospital Readmissions: Resources

Resources from the May 6 webinar on the community approach to reducing hospital readmissions are now available, including an audio recording with synched slides, the moderator's and speakers' presentations, and a transcript of the presentations and question-and-answer session.

For lessons from hospitals with exceptionally low readmission rates, see this overview report and case studies of McKay-Dee Hospital in Ogden, Utah; Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center in Houston, Texas; Mercy Medical Center in Cedar Rapids, Iowa; and St. John's Regional Health Center in Springfield, Missouri. Visit to view comparative hospital performance data on 30-day readmission rates for heart attack, heart failure, and pneumonia patients. And visit the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) Web site to learn about an initiative, supported by The Commonwealth Fund and led by IHI, to reduce rehospitalizations in four states: Massachusetts, Michigan, Ohio, and Washington.
