The Hospital to Home (H2H) is a national campaign to reduce readmissions for patients recently hospitalized with a cardiovascular condition, the leading cause of hospitalization in the United States. The American College of Cardiology and the Institute of Healthcare Improvement, organizations with a successful record of improving care, are combining forces and developing partnerships to form a campaign to improve the transition of patients from inpatient to outpatient status. About one in five patients hospitalized with cardiovascular conditions are readmitted within 30 days and studies suggest that many of these readmissions can be prevented.
Building on the success of the D2B Alliance, we have developed a campaign that will improve practice. Join now by signing up your hospital and becoming part of this national effort. Your enrollment signals a commitment to be a part of improving care.
Launched in 2009 with a focus on building awareness and the H2H Community, H2H is now “challenging” practitioners to better understand and tackle readmission problems by trying specific tools and improvement strategies. This new phase of H2H offers a tool kit of best practices from the field, instructional webinars, and surveys to capture and share experiences with others.
