Four experts in respiratory care offered successful multidisciplinary strategies for avoiding unnecessary COPD readmissions, the financial impact of readmissions (including the impact of the Affordable Care Act’s Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program), and ways that departments and RTs can incorporate best practices to reduce and prevent COPD readmissions.
