Readmissions Diagnostic Worksheet

Institute for Healthcare Improvement
Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA

This diagnostic tool helps hospitals perform an in-depth review of the last five rehospitalizations to identify opportunities for improvement. This includes conducting chart reviews of the last five readmissions as well as interviews with recently readmitted patients and their family members.


This tool was initially developed as part of the STate Action on Avoidable Rehospitalizations (STAAR) initiative.
