GetWellNetwork

Abstract: According to the CDC, heart failure affects 5.7 million Americans at an annual cost of $30.7 billion. Unplanned hospital re-admissions continue to be a costly and common occurrence, with nearly 1 in 4 patients being readmitted within 30 days of discharge. With the shift to value-based care and a focus on reducing cost and improving quality, many health care providers are turning to technology to help patients with heart failure and other costly chronic conditions better manage from home.

Presenter: Laura Bramschreiber, Vice President of Marketing at GetWellNetwork will share more about GetWell Go, the company’s innovative mobile solution for helping providers improve care transitions, reduce unplanned readmissions and promote greater health outcomes for patients.

National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke
