Abstract Hospital leaders who are considering initiatives to reduce readmissions by improving discharge processes and postdischarge care should begin with five action steps: Ascertain the hospital's Medicare 30-day readmission rates from July 1, 2011, to June 30, 2012. Based on these numbers, estimate the potential readmission penalties the organization may face. Identify a clear strategy or program for the organization to reduce 30-day readmissions and avoid Medicare penalties. Determine the overall direct and indirect costs of this strategy or program. Calculate the potential ROI of the initiative.
