Hospital Bedside Technology Solution Results in 74 Percent Reduction in Heart Failure Readmission Rate
Date:6/22/2009

ector, Cardiac/Critical Patient Care Services at SVBGH. "The success of the Heart Failure Interactive Care Plan has greatly enhanced our ability to establish and replicate best practices in heart failure care."

These demonstrated outcomes are announced at a time when health policy makers and key stakeholders increase their attention on the growing issue of heart failure readmissions. Readmission rates have tripled in the last 25 years and today, nearly one-quarter of heart failure patients are readmitted to the hospital within 30 days of their discharge. There is growing consensus that dramatically reducing heart failure readmission rates and improving clinical outcomes is an urgent national health priority.

"With so much attention in health care today being devoted to improving heart failure outcomes, especially reducing hospital readmission rates, we are excited to be able to report these results," says David Wright, chief outcomes officer, GetWellNetwork. "This study is a clear example of the impact patient engagement has on advancing quality, cost and even service outcomes in hospitals today. When patients have the resources to be a more active participant in their care, the overall care experience is exceptional."

Building on the success of the Heart Failure Interactive Care Plan at SVBGH, GetWellNetwork is introducing this patient pathway technology at client hospitals nationally. The first three sites announced for implementation are St. Joseph Mercy Hospital, Oakland, Mich. (a member of Trinity Health), Christiana Care Health System, Wilmington, Del., and St. Joseph East Hospital, Lexington, Ky. (a member of Catholic Health Initiatives).
