This website’s mission is to educate students on the latest techniques to reduce readmissions into hospitals. It was created by two students at the UMN family medicine and community health department.
Reducing Avoidable Hospital Visits
To remove the burden readmissions place on patients and their families and allow them the comfort and well being of staying in their own beds, we studied hospitals and care providers across the continuum of care with the goal to collectively prevent avoidable hospital readmissions across the world.
