Patient Navigator Program
Increased penalties are in effect for hospitals with excessive readmissions for heart attack and heart failure. The ACC launched the Patient Navigator Program in 2014 to apply a team-based approach for keeping patients at home and healthy after hospital discharge.
Hospitals that participate in the ACC's NCDR® ACTION Registry®-GWTGTM and the Hospital to Home (H2H) Initiative are eligible to participate. The program combines the power of the registry's infrastructure with the improvement strategies used in H2H.
With the ACC Patient Navigator Program, hospitals will be supported in developing new or in enhancing existing processes to reduce readmissions and improve overall patient care.
