Reducing readmissions using health coaches is a low cost, low tech care coordination effort that has been a successful three-year effort sponsored by CMS. (We were a part of the project in Louisiana.) Free listening sessions for providers who want to learn more about how to do this are are being set up now by the Colorado Foundation for Medical Quality.
