Maintaining patient health after a hospital stay...
RARE - Reducing Avoidable Readmissions Effectively

Community Partners - Join the Campaign

A broad and expanding base of Community Partners that includes providers, health plans, state health agencies, home health agencies, nursing homes, patient advocacy groups and other community groups is endorsing and actively supporting the RARE Campaign.

The partner groups are supporting the campaign because avoidable readmissions are the result of a fragmented health care system. By having a broad-based, concerted effort to coordinate patient care after discharge across the continuum of care, we can more quickly help 4,000 patients enjoy peaceful sleep in their own beds instead of unnecessarily in the hospital.

The roles of a Community Partner are to:

  • Encourage broad participation of their members/constituents to help reduce avoidable hospital readmissions in the region
  • Agree to be listed publicly as a Community Partner in support of the campaign
  • Provide input and support to topics related to avoidable readmissions that align with the mission of their organization as appropriate
