Description: Nearly 1 in 5 Medicare patients discharged from a hospital is readmitted within 30 days, often for avoidable reasons. Viewed as a measure of your facility's quality of care (or worse, its failure), the ripple effects are staggering. Explore the costs and regulatory challenges associated with avoidable hospital readmissions, and discover why physical therapists are uniquely positioned to be the right provider at the right time to help minimize their occurrence, improve patient-centered care, and add value to your facility.
