Heart failure has gained national attention as a serious disease management problem. We aim to solve this problem by focusing on the reduction of cardiovascular-related hospital readmissions. So far, our plan is working. In the beginning, 40 patients were enrolled in the heart failure protocol. Of these, only 3 patients (8%) were readmitted to the hospital with a cardiac related diagnosis.
Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) is among the leading causes of hospital readmissions. CHF readmissions worsen patient outcomes and are very costly. With this in mind, we identified the need for a collaborative approach to improving HF care across healthcare settings.
Our Purpose: to reduce cardiovascular-related hospital readmissions & improve transitional care from hospital to home.
