Airstrip contracted with MCIRCC to determine indices and develop displays that would help clinicians best manage inpatient and outpatient Congestive Heart Failure (CHF). This management will help reduce chances of readmission and mortality, improving patient outcome while saving hospitals millions of dollars.

As part of this initiative, MCIRCC performed extensive research to identify the best indices for measuring CHF. By leveraging in-house cardiologist expertise and our available inpatient data warehouse, MCIRCC was able to determine the best indices and create a CHF “dashboard” screen to maximize a clinicians’ ability to detect trends and understand the CHF patient’s evolution during the inpatient stay.
