For patients admitted to the medical ICU over an additional period of 17 months, our goal is to reduce the rate of ICU readmissions within 72 hours of transfer out of the ICU to less than 2%. This will as a result reduce the costs of care, length of stay, and in-hospital mortality rates for these patients.
