PURPOSE: COPD is important cause of hospital admission and is associated with significant morbidity, mortality and healthcare cost. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) has expanded its Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program to financially penalize hospitals with higher than expected all-cause 30-day readmission rates following a hospitalization for COPD exacerbation1.
