The Colorado Foundation for Medical Care has made available a free, downloadable 30-day readmission chart review form.

The review form, which was originally developed by Healthcare Quality Strategies, allows healthcare providers to review the charts of patients who were readmitted within 30 days of discharge. The review form may help providers pinpoint areas of weakness that contributed to the readmission.

Download the 30-day readmission chart review form (pdf) for use in your own facility.
