Some hospitals have implemented Hospital Readmissions Reduction Programs (HRRP) which utilize emergency medical services (EMS) to provide care services to recently discharged patients. The authors of this study examined whether these services can reduce hospital readmissions and the financial impact on the hospital.
Join us on Monday, December 9, 2019 as we discuss the results of this study. The Journal Club discussion will begin at 12:00 PM (CST). We look forward to having you join us! Please register now.

Best Regards,

About thePCRF Journal Club:This is a monthly online meeting that critically evaluates published research and its relevance to prehospital care. Our goal is to promote healthy and respectful discussions that challenge present and future prehospital care practices. We use a webinar format to provide easy access for EMS providers, students, and instructors. Participants can dial in with a telephone or log in via computer. A panel of experts prepares comments, but everyone is encouraged to participate verbally or in the chat window. The session is facilitated by PCRF board members and associates.
