Data Organizations Participating in the NRD

The Nationwide Readmissions Database (NRD) is a unique and powerful database designed to support various types of analyses of national readmission rates for all payers and the uninsured. The NRD includes discharges for patients with and without repeat hospital visits in a year and those who have died in the hospital. Repeat stays may or may not be related. The criteria to determine the relationship between hospital admissions is left to the analyst using the NRD. This database addresses a large gap in healthcare data - the lack of nationally representative information on hospital readmissions for all ages. See Availability of HCUP Data for a list of Nationwide database participation and availability by year.
