This study examines the effects of the reform on adverse events, defined as deaths or readmissions occurring within 60 days of hospitalization.Methods: We use Norwegian register data for patients (age 18+) hospitalized between 2009 and 2014 for COPD/asthma (N=25,936), heart failure (N=27,708), hip fracture (N=44,981) and stroke (N=43,313). Our logit models test for conditional effects of the reform, whereby associations between the reform and adverse events vary by whether or not patients were classified as ready for discharge and in need of follow-up care in the community. The models include fixed effects for districts an...
