313 - Reducing CHF Readmissions with Discharge Follow-Up Calls in a Telephone Triage Call Center Setting: Does it Work?


Apr 25, 2013 8:00am ‐ Apr 25, 2013 9:15am

Standard: $20.00
Members: $0.00

Description

This session focuses on whether or not readmissions can be reduced by calling discharged patients with a diagnosis of congestive heart failure 24 to 48 hours after discharge. What are the benefits of using nurses in a telephone call center setting for this function? We share our experiences, pitfalls, and results to help answer these questions. We also explore the role of leadership support and formulating scripting to help other nurses implement strategies and solutions in their own arenas of care.
