Reducing your hospital's readmission rates can seem like an overwhelming task—but it doesn't have to be.
Knowing where to focus is half the battle. We've found that the best strategies target four stages of care with significant potential to influence patient outcomes. The other half is knowing what improvements to make.
That's where this toolkit comes in. We've compiled resources from across the Advisory Board that will help you isolate and correct patient and systemic issues in the four critical stages of care:
What's inside the toolkit?
You'll find best practices for each step of the improvement process, along with expert implementation advice.
You'll also be able to download supporting tools, including readmitted patient interview forms, heart failure clinic staffing benchmarks, a PAC provider report card, teach-back scripting, and more.
How should I use it?
We've put together a user guide that explains how to maximize the toolkit, including who should use each section, how to determine your readmission reduction goal, how to track your progress, and more. Check out the guide.
