American health care faces a quality crisis.
There are dangerous gaps between the health care people should get and the care they actually do get—especially in the treatment of chronic conditions that affect millions, such as asthma, diabetes, and heart disease.
Launched in 2011, Care About Your Care focuses attention on what people can do to provide and receive better health care. This year, the conversation focuses on improving care transitions to reduce avoidable hospital readmissions, and how nurses, care coordinators, doctors, consumers, caregivers, patients, and others can work together to achieve this.
What have we found so far?
There’s more than one path to reducing avoidable readmissions. Choose the elements that will work best for your organization or team. Ask the questions and use the resources that can result in better care.
