Welcome!

Welcome to the homepage for the National Readmission Prevention Collaborative and the California Readmission Prevention Collaborative. These volunteer collaboratives were created to unite industry leaders in sharing Best Practice Case Studies for hospitals, SNF's and other post acute providers. Please browse these "Best Practice" case studies to identify tools that may work at your facility. Many of the products, tools and services discussed in the case studies are available by clicking-through to the Resources section. Once you have put the Best Practices and industry-leading tools to work in your facility, we encourage you to submit your facility's success story as well! Thanks for visiting.
