The Fight to Reduce 30 Day Readmissions Starts Here.
Right now, 5.7 million Americans are living with heart failure. An additional 670,000 new cases are diagnosed annually, up from 500,000 a few years ago. With the aging of the population, the problem is poised to reach epidemic proportions in coming years, taking a tremendous toll in quality of life as well as longevity. Moreover, the cost of providing heart failure care ranks among the leading U.S. healthcare expenditures.
Now for the good news: the American Heart Association has mounted a nationwide campaign to attack the problem from all sides. Launched in 2010, Target: Heart Failure provides healthcare professionals with comprehensive, content-rich resources and tools — free of charge — to address this urgent challenge.
