Project Information

Neurology Readmissions Reduction Quality Improvement Project

Project Description: The UF Health Neurology department aims to compile a daily report that will aid in monitoring readmission rates of neurology patients. Currently, neurology patients are being readmitted in the system. However, we would like gather the baseline data and the averages of readmissions on a daily basis. This data will determine the need for future analysis and with the goal of focusing on factors that influence readmissions in an attempt to reduce these rates. A quality improvement in mind is to maximize the utilization of the existing health coach in Community Health and Family Medicine for our neurology patients. To realize this goal, it is important to determine if and what type of Primary Care Provider our neurology patients have, and their respective insurance payer. Patients with Primary Care Providers within UFHealth and non-charity insurance (e.g., Medicare, Medicaid, Private, TriCare, Private Insurers) who were seen by UFHealth Primary Care Providers within three years should be included in the report.
