Our friends at Strategic Business Alternatives have written an excellent series of articles about the opportunities and strategies for reducing 30-day readmissions.  In their three-part series on Medicare ACO Management: 30 Day All Cause Readmissions, they discuss the potential opportunity for cost savings, review several different models for addressing the problem, and some of the human and technological tools necessary to address these problems.  Singletrack Analytics has worked with SBA's team on these issues, providing analytical support for SBA's activities, underscoring the need for strong data support for these important clinical initiatives.
