Florida to post preventable readmissions on Web

Share this:

The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration will post data on potentially preventable hospital readmissions on its consumer-oriented Web site FloridaHealthFinder.gov, in an effort to assist officials to identify and prevent avoidable hospitalizations, reports Modern Healthcare. The statewide figures will allow hospitals for the first time to track patients who may be discharged from one hospital and quickly readmitted to another.

Data reported on the Web site was gathered from admissions for the 12 months prior to March 31, 2007, tracking 54 conditions and procedures for the 60,707 readmissions during that period out of 877,228 total cases.
