CCHS = Cleveland Clinic health system

Cleveland Clinic monitors 30-day readmission rates for any reason to any of its system hospitals. Unplanned readmissions are actively reviewed for improvement opportunities. Comprehensive care coordination and care management for high-risk patients has been initiated in an effort to prevent unnecessary hospitalizations and emergency department visits.

Our efforts to decrease readmissions include:

  • Daily Plan of Care Visits to coordinate care and discharge planning across the care team including the patient.
  • Individualized Care Plans (ICPs) for patients with frequent hospital encounters.
  • Readmissions risk score in electronic health record to focus efforts for highest risk patients.
  • Timely follow-up visits following discharge to ensure smooth transition of care.
