Physician Teamwork at CABG Yields Fewer Readmissions and Better Survival

From Medscape:

Health systems that have higher levels of physician teamwork during episodes of CABG surgery have significantly lower 60-day rates of emergency-department visits, readmission, and mortality, according to new research[1].

They found that health systems with high levels of physician teamwork during episodes of CABG achieved 24.6% lower rates of emergency-department visits, 24.4% lower rates of readmission, and 28.4% lower rates of mortality, after adjusting for regional- and hospital-level factors.
