This module will review current knowledge regarding the utilization of routine and daily laboratory evaluation for hospitalized patients in the context of the Choosing Wisely campaign recommendation to not to perform repetitive complete blood count (CBC) and chemistry testing in the face of clinical and lab stability. The module will then walk through the “QI roadmap” briefly discussing how an institution can evaluate their local practice and improve performance in line with the Choosing Wisely recommendation. This module will review the relevant steps, but does assume that the audience is familiar with the content of the “Planning and Executing Quality Improvement Projects” QI CME module through SHM.

Mounting evidence shows that the American healthcare system costs too much for the results it achieves in terms of patient outcomes and access. Many different parts of this system need attention, and it can be difficult to know where to begin. However, the inpatient / hospital environment is a “high intensity” healthcare delivery setting, and the “Choosing Wisely” initiative of the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) offers a list of low value healthcare practices which make great targets for improvement efforts. In this module, we will tackle one of the top five practices chosen for Choosing Wisely by the Society of Hospital Medicine (SHM): excessive transfusion.

This activity was made possible in part by an educational grant from Novartis. This is the third session in a four-part series, SHM Clinical Rapid Updates: Heart Failure. This session covers quality improvement focused approach for heart failure patient during hospitalization. Specific subtopics addressed in this session include: 1. Describe novel HF therapies that are potential QI targets including SGLT2 inhibitors alone and in combination w/ ANRI 2. Describe results of recent studies as potential QI targets including EMPRROR Reducediv and DAPA HFv 3. Discuss QI efforts in this area This panel was moderated by Dr. Jagriti Chadha, MD, FHM. Our panelists included Dr. Tresa McNeal, MD, FACP, SFHM, Interim Chair for the Department of Medicine at BSW Medical Center in Temple, Texas, and Dr. Dustin Smith, MD, SFHM, Associate Professor of Medicine at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia.

This session covers heart failure care during hospitalization, and through transition of care. Specific subtopics addressed in this session include: 1. Preventing recurrent hospitalizations based on PARADIGM-HFii trial 2. Tools and strategies for optimal transitions from inpatient to outpatient 3. Potential roles for telemonitoring and cardio-MEMs This panel was moderated by Dr. Jagriti Chadha, MD, FHM.

Series SummaryThere is significant variability in the facilitation of transitions of care both in the hospital and out of the hospital to home. While there is some consensus regarding evidence-based interventions to successfully facilitate transitions of care and improve patient outcomes, these interventions are not always reliably implemented.
