We empirically investigate the pattern of where heart attack patients are transferred between hospitals. Using 2011 Florida State Emergency Department and Inpatient Databases, we demonstrate the relative importance of three key factors in determining transfer destinations: hospital relationship, distance, and quality. Our conditional logit analysis shows that the relationship of being affiliated with the same multihospital system plays a dominant role in the choice of transfer destinations, compared to distance and quality. This result is robust to three alternative specifications of choice sets using distance ranking, radius circles, and Hospital Referral Regions. When using 30-day readmission rate to evaluate the health outcome of transferred patients, we find that relationship-based transfers are associated with a much higher readmission rate than distance-based and quality-based transfers. We also find that nonprofit hospitals are more likely to conduct quality-based transfers than their for-profit counterparts. Our study calls for a reevaluation of current practice in interhospital transfer of heart attack patients—a change of protocol for selecting transfer destinations may significantly decrease hospital readmission rates.
