Congestive heart failure (CHF) has long been a priority in value-based care. It’s a highly prevalent condition, especially among already complex patients. The progression of CHF can be rapid, and readmissions are frequent and costly. It’s no surprise why providers continue to struggle with reducing utilization and cost of care for patients with CHF.
Some provider organizations take too narrowly scope their approach to condition management by focusing only on the 30-day post-discharge window, rather than preventing admissions and ensuring ongoing ambulatory care management upstream.
This series of tools and research reports offers guidance on refining your CHF management strategy across the inpatient, post-acute, primary care, and home setting to better manage the cost of care.
