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.

Projects

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

News And Research

  • NCQA seeks public comments on proposed changes to HEDIS measures

    The National Committee for Quality Assurance is seeking public comments on proposed changes to the Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set, a set of quality measures used by the CMS to assess the performance of Medicare Advantage plans and other commercial insurers. Proposed changes include doing away with an ambulatory-care metric that summarizes utilization and adding metrics to evaluate whether adolescents and adults who were treated for substance abuse disorder received follow-up care and to assess screening and follow-up for depression screening among pregnant women.
