Cardiac Patient Readmission Model

BACKGROUND

With an aim to improve management of 30-day readmission rates and associated high costs of cardiac care, Edj’s custom readmission model helps hospital systems and care providers predict which cardiac patients are most likely to be readmitted and manage factors that can reduce readmission rates.

A healthcare system serving a tristate area engaged EdjAnalytics to analyze their Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) patients covered by Medicare. Prior to this project, the hospital system had been penalized through the Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program for a heightened number of readmissions among CHF patients. The goal of this analysis was to anticipate and reduce the number of readmissions within 30 days of hospital discharge.
