Improving Community Health Through Reducing Hospital Readmissions

Reducing preventable hospital readmissions is a powerful tool in our work improving health and wellness in communities throughout Alice Hyde’s service area. Hospital readmissions can have multiple causes – from patients being discharged into a situation where they do not have the resources or support to continue their recovery, to worsening health conditions that result from inadequate support, supervision or follow-up for managing chronic conditions.

Hospitals can only control some aspects of a patient’s recovery, but Alice Hyde is committed to providing patients with resources, tools and support to help them manage their conditions and improve their health and wellness after being discharged from the hospital.
