Reducing Hospitalizations

End-stage renal disease patients experience higher rates of hospitalization, readmission, and emergency department utilization compared to the general public, all of which are associated with significant morbidity, mortality, and economic impacts. Health deficits impacting health care utilization are related to underlying health conditions, as well as patient behaviors and social determinants of health. The listed barriers will be addressed through the associated interventions, tools, and resources to support a reduction in hospitalizations, readmissions, and emergency department visits.
