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.

We recognize that avoidable hospital readmissions are the result of a fragmented health care system.

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.
