- •Higher intensity of rehabilitation care was associated with lower risk of 30-day hospital readmission.
- •Hospitals with rehabilitation units were associated with lower risk of 30-day hospital readmission.
- •Hospitals need to integrate rehabilitation care to achieve better outcomes in value-based reimbursement environments.
