Dr. Augustine Agocha is presented with BayCare's Best Outcome Project Award for "Reducing Heart Failure Readmissions”.

Almost 6 million people in the U.S. have heart failure and 600,000 more are diagnosed each year. Of the more than 1 million annual hospital admissions for heart failure, about 1 in 5 will return to the hospital within 30 days and nearly half will go back within 6 months.

Like cancer, heart failure has stages that progress from stage A, when the heart is still relatively normal, to stage D when the heart is critically abnormal. Currently, heart failure has no cure but significant advances have been made in improving patient health and longevity. Also like cancer, the earlier heart failure is detected and treated, the better.

HealthPoint’s Cardiology/Heart Failure Program provides seamless coordinated care that spans the home, hospital admissions, office visits, and even the emergency room through our advanced electronic medical records system and collaboration with other health professionals and healthcare organizations. Research shows that effective care coordination and management of transitions can save lives and improve patients’ overall health care experience, especially with a challenging disease like heart failure.
