An estimated 5 million Americans are currently diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure with an additional 550,000 new cases diagnosed each year. Hospitalization is the major contributor to the overall cost of heart failure, with the number of hospitalizations increasing due to the overall aging of the population as well as the improvement of medical care and increased survival rates. Knowledge of current practices and outcomes of inpatient management for acute heart failure provides evidence that can be used to improve nursing and medical care for this population. ADHERE* (Acute Decompensated Heart Failure National Registry) is a national registry that prospectively collects observational data that are used to track and study the medical management of patients hospitalized for acute heart failure (HF). ADHERE includes information on patient demographics, past medical history, initial evaluation, resource utilization, hospital treatment, medications, and procedures. The purpose of the registry is to compile a database on the medical management of patients treated for HF in order to improve management of this patient population over time. This poster describes the first quarter benchmark report of Saint Francis Hospital and Health Center (SFHHC), which recently became one of nearly 200 acute care hospitals across the nation to participate in ADHERE. Benchmark reports are published on a quarterly basis and summarize data collected during the previous year. All qualified HF discharges are submitted anonymously via an electronic Case Report Form and sent directly to the registry. The first quarter benchmark report will provide SFHHC physicians and nurses with baseline information related to HF management and outcomes within their facility. The information will be used to compare practices at this facility with those of similar hospitals within the region and nation, with the ultimate goal of evaluating and improving the quality of care of HF patients.
