Missouri Baptist Hospital works with patients to find the cause of their heart failure and then uses a follow-up program to reduce 30-day readmission rates. Cardiologist Dr. Marc Lewen says heart failure readmissions are an "ongoing problem that is almost epidemic." The hospital educates patients about reducing their risks for problems and has a nurse contact them within 48 hours of discharge.
