Readmission Reduction of cardiac heart patients with Nicas
Heart failure is a syndrome of inadequate delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the tissues of the body, which can be due to a pumping or a relaxing problem of the heart. Many different cardiac disease states will present with heart failure. Heart failure affects millions of people in the USA , with more then 700,000 new cases every year. The majority of admissions to the hospital for heart failure are, in fact, readmissions for heart failure. Approximately 24 percent of the people discharged from the hospital with heart failure will be readmitted within 30 days and more the half of them will be readmitted within 6 months. Heart failure is the number one Medicare discharge diagnosis and the direct and indirect costs of heart failure are about $40 billion annually.
