The MVC conducted its first CHF readmission reduction workgroup session with an amazing group of participants from a variety of hospitals. We had a very thorough discussion on the root causes of CHF readmissions, and these were the 4 major root causes seen across all participating hospitals.
We will be having another session with the same group of hospitals focusing specifically on their CHF readmission reduction initiatives, and we are eager to see how these hospitals have designed processes to combat these root causes.
With many hospitals still remaining on the CHF readmission reduction workgroup waiting list (email Daniel Thomas to join!), the list of root causes and best practices will be updated as we hear from more hospitals, so stay tuned to the blog for more updates!
