dc.description.abstract1 in 5 people diagnosed with chronic illness like Heart Failure is rehospitalized. BrightStar Clinical Pathways uses an RN-Coordinated, team oriented, and evidence-based approach to optimize client health and well being and reduce the likelihood of a return trip to the hospital. BrightStar Clinical Pathways is an evidence-based program inspired by national recognized care transition programs, like The Coleman Care Transitions Intervention Program that resulted in a 50% reduction in readmissions after 30 days. Patients in the Coleman clinical trial were more likely to achieve self-identified personal goals for symptom management. There will also be discussion about the role of technology in the delivery of successful transitions.
