Unplanned Readmissions Rates within 30-Days
Readmission measures evaluate what happened to patients once they left the hospital after receiving care for certain conditions. The readmission rates focus on whether patients were admitted again at the hospital 30 days of being initially discharged. The hospital readmission rates are based on patients with Medicare aged 65 and older.
The readmission rates are calculated using a risk-adjusted approach. The calculations consider how sick patients were when they were initially hospitalized. The readmission rates help make hospital comparisons accurate and meaningful for those hospitals treating treat sicker patients. Lower readmission rates are better.
