Benchmarks in Reducing Hospital Readmissions

Beginning in 2013, CMS will penalize hospitals for excess readmission rates.
Initial focus will be on readmissions for heart failure, acute myocardial

the Healthcare Intelligence Network continues to report on initiatives in
this area and deliver actionable data.
