Authors: Dora Barilla, James Martinez, Matthew Keeling, Angel Coaston
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) was used to design a customizable hospital readmissions dashboard that will help transitional care management teams and coordinating care for complex patients after they are discharged. The identification of health assets and community resources that are in close proximity to their patients neighborhoods are important to understanding geographic determinants, population health and avoidable reimbursement penalties.
