At UPMC, our commitment to high quality and safe patient care extends to those patients who are leaving our care.
Our newly instituted Safe Discharge Program — a tool developed by a system-wide team of clinicians — evaluates patients before discharge to identify if they are at risk of hospital readmission.
All UPMC patients are now assigned a simply calculated and continuously updated readmission risk score. This score helps us identify and respond if you are at a higher risk of being re-hospitalized for an avoidable reason. We can offer helpful and personalized interventions, such as a home visit from nurses, patient coaching, or a pharmacist consultation around your specific needs.
