Hospital to Home
The Hospital to Home (H2H) Initiative is a resource for hospitals and cardiovascular care providers committed to improving transitions from hospital to "home" and reduce their risk of federal penalties associated with high readmission rates.
Self-contained improvement projects that include a goal statement, success metrics, a tool kit, an assessment, and 3 webinars (evidence, tools, lessons learned) that provide participants with recommended strategies and tools to achieve small, attainable goals in their organization.
The goal of the H2H SY7 Challenge is for all patients discharged with a diagnosis of HF/AMI to have a follow-up appointment scheduled/cardiac rehab referral made within 7 days of hospital discharge.
The goal of the H2H MM Challenge is for clinicians and patients discharged with a diagnosis of HF/MI to work together and ensure optimal medication management.
The goal of the H2H S&S Challenge is to activate patients to recognize early warning signs and have a plan to address them.
