Check out our National Outcomes

Pulmonary Exchange provides monthly outcomes for each of our clients running our Re-Hospitalization Intervention Program. We have combined our patient lists to generate this aggregate report of monthly-unplanned discharges against the number of patient encounters.

In 2015 we had 14,010 encounters for pneumonia (1.1% re-admission rate) & 8,065 encounters for CHF (.92% re-admission rate). We added COPD to this program in 2015 and screened 482 patients with a .62% re-admission rate.

Our monthly re-hospitalization rate reflects all patients seen by our respiratory therapist following our evidence based programming.  We encourage you to compare our monthly rates against the Medicare.gov rates for Pneumonia (17.3%), CHF (22.7%), and COPD (20.7%).
