RARE Campaign Helps Minnesota Hospitals Avoid 4,570 Readmissions

The Minnesota Reducing Avoidable Readmissions Effectively Campaign has reported the prevention of 4,570 readmissions in 83 participating hospitals in 2012.

A collaboration between the hospitals and community partners, RARE aims to reduce readmissions through comprehensive discharge planning, patient engagement, medication management and ongoing patient communication.

RARE estimates that the 4,570 prevented readmissions saved participating hospitals a total of $40 million.
