Shreya Kangovi, Philadelphia Inquirer, Readmissions

In a story in the Philadelphia Inquirer, LDI Senior Fellow Shreya Kangovi explained Penn's new outreach program designed to lower the number of hospital readmissions. The internist, who started the local Patient-Centered Transition Project, said the program targets five Philadelphia zip codes that account for 85 percent of the system's readmissions. One in three residents there live in poverty, she said, making them eligible for her program.
