The complex, progressive nature of heart failure (HF) often results in
adverse outcomes, the most common of which is hospital readmission. Long
lists of variables that may, or may not be associated with, or predictive
of, hospital readmission for HF patients have been generated. To organize
that considerable literature into a usable framework, a taxonomic
structure was developed to inform clinical practice and facilitate
administrative decision-making. An integrated, systematic review of the
literature was the research approach used. A search of the MEDLINE and
Cumulative Index of Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL) was
conducted using the linked terms 'hospital readmission' and 'Heart
Failure', and resulted in a final sample of 31 research reports from the
years 1986 û 2004. A systematic content analysis of the retrieved articles
yielded multiple factors associated with the hospital readmission of HF
patients. Factors and their definitions were extracted, grouped into like
categories, and eventually classified into five domains: Demographic,
Physiologic, Psychosocial, Patient functioning, and Resource utilization.
Definitions of the five domains were formulated. The resulting taxonomy
has clinical, research, and administrative implications in the delivery of
care to HF patients.
