Readmissions reduction program: mortality and readmissions for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Implementation of the Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program (HRRP) following discharge of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) has led to a reduction in 30-day readmissions with unknown effects on postdischarge mortality. The objective of this retrospective cohort study was to examine the association of HRRP with 30-day hospital readmission and 30-day postdischarge mortality rate in patients after discharge from COPD hospitalization.
