Readmission Rate Performance
High quality healthcare doesn’t just happen. It takes a commitment to improved practices, investment in advanced technology and a culture of high standards.
At Monroe Clinic patient care doesn’t end at discharge. Dedicated professionals like Linda help minimize post-hospital stay complications — reducing patient readmissions and helping patients get better, faster.
What is this measure?
Patients who have had a recent hospital stay, and need to return to the hospital within 30-days of their discharge.
Why is it important?
Following discharge, patients sometimes develop other serious injuries, conditions or complications requiring a return to the hospital. Monroe Clinic’s Care Coordination program follows up with patients within a few days of their discharge. The goal is to allow patients to return home safely and stay there.
