SESSION TITLE: Airways 2

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster

PRESENTED ON: Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PM

PURPOSE: To study the trend of asthma exacerbation readmission rates over the last several years.

METHODS: We evaluated the readmission rates for asthma over the last several years to observe the trend of asthma readmissions to the hospital within 30 days of discharge. We present the trends during the time period 2009 to 2013 using data from Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project Nationwide Readmissions Database. A cohort of 1,220,047 asthma hospitalizations of patients older than 18 years was identified in this time period and the 30-day readmission rates were analyzed by comparing rates in consecutive years and the beginning and end of the time period listed using Z-test for proportions.
