Michigan tries to cut hospital readmissions


In May, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and 15 hospitals statewide will try to reduce preventable hospital readmissions.

In May, Blue Cross Blue Shield of MICHIGAN and 15 hospitals statewide will try to reduce preventable hospital readmissions. Project BOOST is a transitional care coordination model created by the Society of Hospital Medicine, launched last year at six pilot sites. BOOST aims to reduce hospital readmissions with improved patient and family education, better communication between inpatient and outpatient providers, and follow-up visits.

The ILLINOIS Supreme Court overturned the state's medical lawsuit reform law. The court's judgment was that the "damage limitation violates the constitutional principle of separation of powers by interfering with the authority of the judicial branch to reduce verdicts," according to the Illinois State Medical Society.
