In July 2017, Center for Health Information and Analysis (CHIA) released this report on ED visits after inpatient discharge. The analysis provided a broad look at the patients who return to the ED, whether or not they are readmitted to the inpatient level of care. These “revisits” to the ED may represent an opportunity to prevent a hospital readmission or may be avoidable.
Following the release of the report, MHA, CHIA and Collaborative Healthcare Strategies organized a webinar to share the key findings from the report and discuss how it can be used to inform and improve care transition to reduce avoidable acute-level hospital use.
On November 15, 2017 MHA, CHIA, & Collaborative Healthcare Strategies offered a webinar on emergency department (ED) visits within 30 days of an inpatient discharge in Massachusetts.
