Evaluating interventions to prevent hospital readmission

Community Information Now (CI:Now)   (San Antonio)

January 2014

Another multi-year evaluation of two different evidence-based models of education and self-management support to prevent immediate hospital readmission by providing low-income and senior people with heart failure – as well as their families and caregivers – with the knowledge, skills, and tools to successfully manage their condition. The interventions have just begun and early results are expected in early 2015. Both the interventions and the evaluation are supported by the Baptist Health Foundation of San Antonio.
