A study in the British Medical Journal Quality & Safety indicated that using an EMR-based risk stratification program that focused on cardiac and intensive care resources allowed a Texas hospital to see a 26% relative reduction of the chances for readmission in patients with heart failure. The study also noted that the program led to an absolute decrease of five readmissions for every 100 index HF hospitalizations.
