We all know the statistics - one in five patients who are discharged from a health care facility will be readmitted within 30 days. It is estimated that nearly half of these readmissions are avoidable. And beginning in 2012, the federal government will implement new regulations to cut Medicare reimbursements to hospitals for preventable readmissions. Studies have shown that health care facilities that take a proactive approach are able to significantly reduce these readmissions.
