  1. A case manager intervention to reduce readmissions.

    Article - En anglais


    Acute hospitalizations represent substantial financial liability to closed health care systems.

    Among hospitalized patients, those with repeated admissions are high-cost users.

    Most managed care plans employ case management to control hospital use.

    This technique attempts to detect and fulfill unmet medical and social needs, intensify postdischarge care, identify and mobilize effective community services, and enhance primary care access.

    Despite the popularity of case management to control hospital use, few trials have examined its efficacy.


    We conducted a randomized controlled trial of an intervention of case managers at a university-affiliated Veterans Affairs medical center.
