|Title:||Effect of Outpatient Visits and Discharge Destination on Potentially Preventable Readmissions for Congestive Heart Failure and Bacterial Pneumonia. Final Report No. 14 (March 2012)|
|Abstract:||This study analyzes factors that may increase or decrease potentially preventable readmissions (PPRs) to help inform the policy debate on Medicare readmissions. It explores the relationship between PPRs and use of outpatient follow-up care, discharge destination, rural versus urban residence of the patient, and time to follow-up care in Medicare patients hospitalized with congestive heart failure and bacterial pneumonia in 2006–2007. The study includes a table, figures, and references.|
