30-Day Inpatient Rehab Readmission Risk Calculator

First page of the JAMDA paper

Hospital readmissions have become a major target of both quality improvement and cost savings at the forefront of ongoing health care reform initiatives. Readmission after hospital discharge represents not only a clinically relevant event for patients and caregivers, but also an expensive and potentially avoidable occurrence for hospitals and health systems. This readmission risk calculator specifically looks at 30-day readmission risk to acute care hospitals from inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRFs).

A paper on this analysis can be found below in the Journal of the American Medical Directors Association. A functioning, usable calculator is under development and will soon be available on this page.
