Study: Reducing repeat hospitalizations doesn't harm patients
from HealthDay News
Under the Affordable Care Act, efforts were made to cut the number of times patients needed to head back to the hospital after discharge. But would a reduction in these "readmissions" leave patients more vulnerable at home, raising death rates? A new study suggests that didn't happen. Reducing hospital readmission rates for heart attack, heart failure, and pneumonia didn't increase death rates, the researchers said.
