Reducing the Risk:
Decreasing the need for re-hospitalization
According to the American Heart Association CHF affects approximately five million people in the United States and over 500,000 people are diagnosed with the disease each year. It is the leading cause of hospitalization in people over 65 years old and causes more than 12 million doctor visits per year.
These findings highlight the complexity of treating patients with CHF and stress the importance of developing comprehensive and coordination care within the healthcare continuum. Our goal is to work closely together to avoid costly rehospitalization by providing education and treatment in a post-acute setting and evaluating the many intricacies of CHF including underlying causes, medications and necessary lifestyle modifications.
