Clinical Trial Summary

This study is a pragmatic randomized clinical trial to determine the effectiveness of two strategies of early follow-up in adults after hospitalization for heart failure: telephone follow-up with a heart failure care manager vs. in-person clinic visit with their primary care provider. The primary outcomes during 30-day follow-up will include readmission for heart failure, death and readmission for any cause. The study team will randomly assign 2400 patients during a 15-month period in a 1-to-1 ratio to either an initial structured telephone call with a heart failure care manager or an in-person primary care clinic visit within 7 days of discharge. A secondary goal is to increase the rate of any follow-up within 7 days of discharge to greater than 90 percent among all eligible patients.

Clinical Trial Description

Heart failure (HF) affects >5 million adults nationally and is the leading cause of hospitalization among Medicare beneficiaries. Reducing hospitalization for heart failure (HF) and subsequent readmissions shortly after discharge is a nationally recognized health care delivery system priority. More than 20% of Medicare patients hospitalized for HF are readmitted within 30 days and this rate has not been declining over the past decade despite increasing attention to this problem. The data that will be collected could allow the study team to tailor the post-discharge follow-up program to patient characteristics to further improve the effectiveness of the interventions. ;
