Hospital readmissions and mortality

Much has been made about the relationship between hospital readmission rates and mortality. Dead people can’t be readmitted, suggesting a negative correlation. On the other hand, decreases in both seem to be measures of quality, suggesting a positive correlation. I explore the relationship in a new post on AcademyHealth’s blog.
