Heart failure Peer Response

Heart failure Peer Response

PICOT: For adults aged 40 and older with heart failure in a primary care clinic, does the implementation of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Re-Engineered Discharge (RED) Toolkit via telemedicine, compared to current practice, impact 30-day readmission rates over 14 weeks?

Heart failure has been a predominant cause of death for nearly a century (Khan et al., 2020; Schrage et al., 2020). Readmissions related to the worsening disease process have significant repercussions for healthcare, including decreased reimbursement. An integrative review was completed to answer if utilizing the RED Toolkit coupled with telemedicine reduced heart failure readmissions. Results indicated decreased readmissions by upwards of 30%, improved morbidity and mortality rates, and quality of life (Hunt‐O’Connor et al., 2021; Jenneve et al., 2020; McKay et al., 2019; Mitchell et al., 2017; Patel & Dickerson, 2017; Roberts et al., 2018; Sullivan et al., 2018).
