Abstract

Patients discharged to skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) are at increased risk for repeated hospitalizations. Health care providers are interested in reducing 30-day hospital readmission rates, particularly after the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was implemented. The authors investigated trends in 30-day hospital readmissions among patients discharged to SNFs before and after implementation of the ACA, using interrupted time trend analysis at a community practice of an academic tertiary care center. Thirty-day hospital readmission rates did not change significantly in the study population of patients discharged to SNFs despite implementation of the ACA. Further research is needed to explore the causes underlying these results.
