Tailored dissemination and implementation of emergency care clinical decision support to improve emergency department disposition
NIH Reporter Link Over 80% of emergency department (ED) patients with acute heart failure (AHF) are admitted to the hospital, with only 10% at high-risk for in-hospital events. We developed and validated a prediction rule (STRATIFY) that identifies ED patients with AHF that may be safe to discharge. If successfully implemented, it will save substantial resources without sacrificing patient outcomes and help institutions achieve goals for accountable care.
