Better care for individuals, better health for patients and lower per-capita costs form the triple aim of the U.S. healthcare reforms for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The number of unplanned and avoidable readmissions that occur within 30 days of discharge from a hospital, too, are under the scanner to maintain the quality of care.

Medicare’s Hospital Readmission Reduction Program (HRRP) imposes financial penalty on hospitals with excess readmissions.
