University of Rochester Medical Center’s researcher Yue Li, PhD is working with The Finger Lakes Health Systems Agency to reduce avoidable transfers from nursing home to hospitals. Providing care in hospitals that can safely be done at the nursing home where the patient resides is not only more expensive, but it is also more uncomfortable and disruptive for the patient. Using a grant from the Another Look program, Dr. Li is analyzing Medicare data to understand regional differences in rates of avoidable hospital use and factors that may lead to these differing rates, and is then meeting with FLHSA leaders to “reality-check” the findings.

More information about the Another Look program is available from this video.
