Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease readmissions and other measures of hospital quality.
This study examined the association between COPD readmissions and other quality measures. There were modest correlations between COPD readmission rates and readmission rates for other medical conditions, including heart failure , acute myocardial infarction, pneumonia, and stroke . In contrast, it also found low correlations between COPD readmission rates and readmission rates for surgical conditions, as well as mortality rates for all measured conditions.
