Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project, Nationwide Readmissions Database (HCUP NRD)

Description: The Nationwide Readmissions Database (NRD) is part of a family of databases and software tools developed for the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP). The NRD is a unique and powerful database designed to support various types of analyses of national readmission rates for all payers and the uninsured. This database addresses a large gap in health care data – the lack of nationally representative information on hospital readmissions for all ages. Unweighted, the NRD contains data from approximately 17 million discharges each year. Weighted, it estimates roughly 36 million discharges. Developed through a Federal-State-Industry partnership sponsored by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, HCUP data inform decisionmaking at the national, State, and community levels. Dr. Kemper’s data ranges from 2012-2014

Coverage: National/State
