Welcome to the No Place Like Home Campaign in Oregon!
Oregon’s No Place Like Home Campaign seeks to engage hospitals, rehabilitation and skilled nursing facilities, hospices, home health agencies, community pharmacies, medical practices, community-based organizations, and other care providers in a collaborative statewide effort to reduce avoidable hospital readmissions that occur within 30 days of hospital discharge.
- Prevent avoidable readmissions within 30 days of hospital discharge by June 30, 2013. In doing this, we increase patient satisfaction and wellness in the community and reduce costs associated with readmissions.
- Reduce the overall readmission rate for Medicare beneficiaries by 20 percent (based on claims data from Medicare 2010).
- Decrease healthcare expenditures related to readmissions. With the estimated average cost of a readmission ranging from $8,000 to $13,000, there is an opportunity to save tens of millions of dollars in Oregon.
