Medicare readmission rates showed 'meaningful decline' in 2012
from The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services
During calendar year 2012, the national 30-day, all cause, hospital readmission rate dropped to 18.4 percent from a 5-year average of 19 percent for all Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services says in a new report. But, the agency said, the "reasons behind the apparent reduction are not yet clear and merit further investigation."
