A STATISTICAL ANALYSIS OF METHODOLOGIES FOR THE REAL-TIME IDENTIFICATION OF PATIENTS WITH ACUTE EXACERBATIONS OF CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE

Background: Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a lung disease characterized by chronic, irreversible airway obstruction that can precipitate into acute exacerbations (AECOPD) of cough, dyspnea and sputum production, often requiring hospitalization. Hospital systems aiming [...]

AIMING TO IMPROVE READMISSIONS THROUGH INTEGRATED HOSPITAL TRANSITIONS (AIRTIGHT): A PRAGMATIC RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL

Background: Despite years of intense focus, inpatient and observation readmission rates remain high and largely unchanged. Little robust evidence exists to guide hospitals in the selection of interventions effective at reducing 30 day readmissions in [...]

BUNDLING A SMARTPHONE APP AND PATIENT NAVIGATION TO IMPROVE COMMUNICATION AND REDUCE POST-DISCHARGE COMPLICATIONS FOR PATIENTS WITH ACUTE VENOUS THROMBOEMBOLISM

Background: Patients diagnosed in-hospital with acute venous thromboembolism (VTE) are at high risk for post-discharge complications and readmission similar to patients with chronic conditions. Patient navigation reduces post-discharge complications and readmissions in patients with chronic [...]
