January 2014
Bernstein, J.

In November, 2013, health care practitioners, administrators, clinical and health services researchers, and policy experts from private sector and government agencies and offices participated in a one-day meeting focused on Medicare's Hospital Readmission Reduction Program (HRRP). The goals of the meeting were to help inform decision makers who are responsible for implementing Medicare’s HRRP about how the program is working now and to develop actionable recommendations for refining the program going forward.
