2022 Stronger - P156 - Putting Heart into Heart Failure: Impacting Value with Care Delivery - On Demand
Caring for heart failure (HF) patients requires coordination, standardization and accessibility. It takes a village to expand accessible care. We established a stepwise, multipronged approach, including: (1) developing a fully staffed HF clinic; (2) expanding HF clinic access via telehealth, coordinating transportation and adding additional locations; and (3) providing robust care coordination across the care continuum. Building strong integration and communication between inpatient and outpatient services was key to improvement. We created shared patient lists within the electronic medical record and standardized coordinator and staff communications regarding high-risk patients. Leveraging a multiplatform approach to patient communication was also crucial.
