The Courage to Swim Upstream: How Highline Medical Center Reduced Heart Failure Patient Readmissions by 55% and Length of Stay by 22%.
Highline Medical Center knows the danger of getting stuck in your ways. The facility set out to swim upstream, against the current of the norm, to improve heart failure patients' quality of care.
Highline, a CHI Franciscan Health Hospital, became a Battelle Healthcare Colloquium member in 2013. The Colloquium is a hospital member organization whose goal is to transform healthcare organizations by improving patient outcomes through heart failure accreditation. Through their accreditation work, Highline selected Colloquium milestones corresponding with one specific goal: reduce readmission rate for patients with a primary or secondary diagnosis of heart failure by 20%.
Not only did Highline achieve this goal, they reduced heart failure patient readmissions by 55% and length of stay by 22% without increasing patient mortality. In this webinar, you'll hear from Dr. Rosemary Peterson, Heart Failure Program Medical Director at CHI Franciscan Health, and Jeff Lewis, former Battelle Healthcare Colloquium Member Services Coach, as they discuss
- How readmissions reduction was achieved
- Methods for decreasing patient length of stay without compromising quality of care
- How collaboration with the Colloquium enabled Highline to meet their goals
- Lessons learned
