Measurement Matters

Measuring return to acute care following discharge from hospital, 2nd edition

Released: 12 April 2017

This report explores a range of issues and options for the ongoing measurement and reporting of readmission in NSW. It builds on BHI’s Insights Series reports on readmissions and describes the development of the risk-standardised readmission ratio. This second edition report is similar to the first edition published in 2015 using the same methodology. The exception to this is the Appendices which provide updated information about the models used to calculate risk-standardised readmission ratios.
