In September 2016, hospital readmission rates were on the rise at 16.8%, with COPD and CHF rates above benchmark at 15% and 19.5%. A structured palliative care program was developed to decrease fragmentation in healthcare practices. After implementation, COPD readmission rates decreased to 8.3% and CHF to 13.2%.
