VCSQI/VHHA Readmission Calculator & Recommendations

The "VCSQI/VHHA Readmission Calculator" presents a sophisticated tool developed jointly by the Virginia Hospitals and Healthcare Association (VHHA) and the Virginia Cardiac Services Quality Initiative (VCSQI). Designed to predict hospital readmission risks for patients undergoing Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG), this calculator integrates clinical, organizational, and socioeconomic factors to provide a comprehensive risk assessment.

 

The document outlines the purpose of the tool—to identify patients at higher risk of post-CABG readmission—and details its operation. By entering specific patient data such as age, gender, COPD status, pre-procedure creatinine level, and socioeconomic factors, healthcare providers can receive a quantified risk score that guides postoperative care plans.

 

The Readmission Risk Calculator is described as user-friendly and an essential resource for tailoring patient care more precisely, enhancing outcomes, and potentially reducing healthcare costs associated with readmissions. It emphasizes the importance of a holistic approach to patient care that considers a broad range of influencing factors.

 

Ideal for cardiac care teams seeking to improve patient management after CABG surgery, this document offers a detailed guide on how to use the calculator effectively to predict and mitigate readmission risks. Obtain your copy to leverage this innovative tool in enhancing the quality of cardiac surgery recovery and care.
