Subject: Re: To identify Re-admission within 30 days
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
Are you interested in the readmissions within 30 days of the first
discharge date or readmissions within 30 days of the latest discharge
date? And, do all readmitting diagnoses qualify as a readmission or
only certain readmitting diagnoses?
