Lack of follow up care after a hospitalization increases a patientís likelihood of being readmitted. One potential partner for working with hospitals on reducing readmissions is the local county health department, who have resources to help patients obtain the necessary follow-up care. This program will highlight several initiatives with county health departments that can help reduce readmissions.
