Arjun Venkatesh and a team of Yale researchers recently published their findings in the Journal of Hospital Medicine.  The paper, “Association Between Postdischarge Emergency Department Visitation and Readmission Rates” found that hospitals with higher emergency department visitation rates after hospital discharge had lower readmission rates among Medicare beneficiaries. 

Other authors on the paper are Changqin Wang, Yongfei Wang, Faseeha Altaf, Susannah M. Bernheim, and Leora Horwitz.
