Hospital compliance with performance measures and 30-day outcomes in patients with heart failure
American Heart Journal, 06/12/2012
Schopfer DW et al. – Authors found that socioeconomic factors and hospital volume were stronger predictors of mortality than compliance with heart failure (HF) performance measures. After adjusting for socioeconomic factors and hospital volume, only 1 of the 4 performance measures was associated with lower 30–day mortality and 2 were associated with lower readmissions.
