See You in 7

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.

H2H on the Local Level

With heart failure (HF) readmissions for Medicare patients in southeast Michigan surpassing the national average of 24.4 percent in 2010, the ACC’s Michigan Chapter decided to take the problem head on by joining together with Michigan’s Quality Improvement Organization, MPRO, and the Great Detroit Area Health Council to form the Southeast Michigan “See You in 7” Hospital Collaborative. The goal: increase the number of follow-up appointments scheduled within seven days of discharge by implementing lessons learned from ACC’s Hospital to Home (H2H) early follow-up challenge, “See You in 7.”
