Ohio: Potentially Preventable Readmissions Hospital Report Card

Published by Ohio Department of Medicaid

The Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) has implemented a healthcare quality initiative based on readmissions for hospital stays. This initiative, otherwise known as the 3M Potentially Preventable Readmissions (PPR) Program, helps ODM and hospitals to identify opportunities to reduce readmissions and improve the quality of patient care while saving state taxpayer dollars. In February 2015, ODM started publishing the Hospital Report Card which compares hospital readmission rates over four 12-month periods of time. This report card is updated with the most current data every six months. Hospitals also have access to hospital-specific readmissions data to further help identify which types of hospital stays have higher than expected readmission rates.
