All-Cause Readmission to Acute Care and Return to the Emergency Department Core

Unplanned readmissions to hospital have been identified as common, costly and potentially avoidable. Understanding the factors that contribute to unplanned readmissions can inform strategies to reduce unplanned readmission rates.

All-Cause Readmission to Acute Care and Return to the Emergency Department provides an overview of unplanned readmissions to acute care hospitals in Canada within thirty days of discharge. It is also the first study in Canada to report rates of return to the emergency department (ED) within seven days of discharge for three jurisdictions (Alberta, Ontario and Yukon). The study focuses on factors associated with readmissions and ED returns at the patient level (e.g. age, clinical condition), hospital (e.g. length of stay, size) and community level (e.g. urban/rural, income quintile). It also describes the costs associated with readmissions and the provincial variation in readmission rates.
