Collaborating Together for Healthier Hearts

Per CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services), heart failure is the most frequent diagnosis for re-hospitalization in people older than 65 years. An estimated one-fifth of Medicare beneficiaries who are discharged from the hospital are readmitted within 30 days.

Effective management of chronic conditions, such as heart failure, remains a primary objective for Avamere. To achieve this objective, we implemented and updated our systems to heighten skills to rapidly recognize symptoms and provide early and aggressive treatment. Instead of reacting and intervening  when a patient becomes ill, we are proactive by concentrating on keeping our patients as healthy as possible. Reducing the number of avoidable hospital and emergency room admissions is vital to achieving optimal health.Heart Failure Management

The Avamere Family of Companies has developed and implemented our Heart Failure Care Pathway (HFCP).

The main goal of our HFCP includes:

  • Consistent communication with providers within the medical community
  • Consistent communication with patients, residents and family members
  • Reduced practice variations through consistent application of best practices
  • Patient, resident and family member activation and involvement in developing and achieving health care goals
