Activity Steps


This integrated literature review evaluated the published studies on how postacute care collaboration ensures a continuum of care and reduces heart failure (HF) readmissions. The authors findings included that multidisciplinary management of HF patients decreased HF 30-day readmissions. As the case management role moves into outpatient care, better there are opportunities to coordinate services across settings.

  1. Describe the impetus for the research and implications for case management in the reduction in 30-day readmissions.
  2. Explain effects of collaborative care for patients with HF.
