Summary from 10/18 Pacing Event: “Readmissions: Improving Care for Multi-Visit Patients”

This Pacing Event focused on a strategy for addressing hospital readmissions by presenting the “MVP Method” of improving care for multi-visit patients (MVPs). The MVP Method has been implemented to improve care for high utilizers of the ED and the inpatient settings, and for special populations, such as patients with COPD, sickle cell, homelessness, and opiate use disorder.
