A National initiative led by the Society of Hospital Medicine to improve the care of patients as they transition from hospital to home.
The Enhanced Home Health (EHH) care delivery model provides a minimum of seven touch points to the patient within two weeks of a hospital discharge.
In partnership with the Home Health Quality Improvement (HHQI) National Campaign and many statewide home health agency professional membership organizations, Health Services Advisory Group is encouraging home health agencies to join the Cardiovascular Health Improvement Initiative and participate in the Home Health Cardiovascular Data Registry. Details of the programs are included in the following links:
