Summary of "Profiling Pediatric Potentially Avoidable Transfers Using Procedure and Diagnosis Codes."

While hospital-hospital transfers of pediatric patients are often necessary, some pediatric transfers are potentially avoidable. Pediatric potentially avoidable transfers (PATs) represent a process with high costs and safety risks but few, if any, benefits. To better understand this issue, we described pediatric interfacility transfers with early discharges.
