Increased Medicare risk contracts led to rising concern with readmission rates among the senior population with chronic illness at Carondelet Health Network. Using readily available data, Carondelet providers and administrators created intervention and evaluation strategies to redesign chronic care services to reduce increased readmissions. The strategies showed health plans can develop such strategies without waiting for sophisticated information systems to be put in place.
