Get with the Guideliness - Heart Failure Gold Plus Achievement Award with Target HF Honor Roll

We’ve recently been recognized by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With The Guidelines® - Heart Failure Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award with Target: Heart FailureSM Honor Roll. The Gold Plus award signifies that we achieved 85% or higher compliance wiht all Get With The Guidelines® - Heart Failure Achievement Measures and 75% or higher compliance with four or more Get With The Guidelines®-Heart Failure Quality Measures for two or more consecutive years. These measures include evaluation of the patient, proper use of medications and aggressive risk-reduction therapies. Before patients are discharged, they also receive education on managing their heart failure and overall health, get a follow-up visit scheduled, as well as other care transition interventions. We received the Target: Heart Failure Honor Roll by demonstrating documentation of all three Target: Heart Failure care components for 50% or more of eligible patients with heart failure discharged from the hospital to improve quality of patient care and outcomes. We met criteria that improve medication adherence, provide early follow-up care and coordination and enhance patient education. The goal is to reduce hospital readmissions and help patients improve their quality of life in managing this chronic condition.
