Heart failure is associated with significant hospital admission rates, mortality, and costly readmissions. Pulse Heart Institute identified it could reduce readmissions by standardizing care and improving timeliness of post-discharge follow up. HF specialists use an analytics application to identify patients at risk for readmission, providing early connection with a HF clinic or cardiologist. These actions have substantially reduced readmissions, improving quality of care.
- 22% relative reduction in HF readmission rate.
- 75% relative improvement in the number of patients referred to a HF clinic.
- 78% relative improvement in order set utilization.
