According to the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Medicare beneficiaries who are discharged from hospitals are increasingly being readmitted for avoidable conditions within 30 to 90 days. Much of this is due to a fragmented health care system which does not adequately support patients during the vulnerable time when they are transitioning from the hospital to other settings, such as nursing homes, rehabilitation facilities and their own homes. The cost to Medicare for hospital readmissions is estimated at $15 billion a year, $12 billion of which is for cases considered preventable.
