Abstract

Hospitals have long complained that assessments of their readmission rates do not take into account the socioeconomic factors that can influence them, resulting in facilities serving the neediest patients taking a financial hit when they don’t meet national standards. That is about to change with the introduction of a law that allows hospitals to factor in that information when determining readmission rates.
