Reducing Readmissions in Patients with Congestive Heart Failure
12/11/17 | Maximize Quality
This PI-LDP project team’s goal is to reduce 30-day, all-cause admissions by facilitating the initiation of Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) care and the transition process for patients with CHF as early as possible in their hospital stay.
A retrospective study showed 70% of patients with CHF were identified later in their inpatient stay — and some were identified at discharge.
To better care for CHF patients, we need to help clinicians identify patients with this condition sooner in the hospital stay. Thus, our team refined our decision support tool so that it correctly identified more than 85% of patients with CHF, resulting in a 50% decrease in CHF readmissions.
