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 MM Challenge is for clinicians and patients discharged with a diagnosis of HF/MI to work together and ensure optimal medication management.

  • Signs and Symptoms

    The goal of the H2H S&S Challenge is to activate patients to recognize early warning signs and have a plan to address them.

  • MI registry shows poorer outcomes in COVID-19 cases

    The composite rate of inpatient death, stroke, recurrent myocardial infarction or repeat unplanned revascularization among patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction was 36% for patients with COVID-19, compared with 13% for patients without COVID-19 and 5% for those in a control group, according to data from the North American Cardiovascular COVID-19 Myocardial Infarction Registry, which includes the American College of Cardiology Interventional Council, the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography & Interventions and the Canadian Association of Interventional Cardiology. The study, published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, found the composite outcome was driven by very high in-hospital mortality rates for patients with COVID-19.
