Bookmark and Share

Reducing readmissions is a national priority for payers, providers, and policymakers seeking to improve health care and lower costs, and readmissions are a significant issue among patients with Medicaid. This new guide from AHRQ is designed to help acute care facilities adapt or expand existing Medicaid readmission reduction efforts; develop Medicaid readmission reduction strategies using the guide’s roadmap featuring 13 customizable online tools; comply with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ Conditions of Participation requirements for standard, improved and transitional care for all patients; and develop partnerships across other settings. The guide is the only federal tool available that is tailored to the adult Medicaid population.
