Cost-Effectiveness of Transitional Care Services After Hospitalization With Heart Failure

Manuel R. Blum, Henning Øien, Harris Carmichael, Paul A. Heidenreich, Douglas K. Owens, Jeremy Goldhaber-Fiebert
Annals of Internal Medicine , 2020

Background:

Patients with heart failure (HF) discharged from the hospital are at high risk for death and rehospitalization. Transitional care service interventions attempt to mitigate these risks.

Results of Base-Case Analysis:

All 3 transitional care interventions examined were more costly and effective than standard care, with NHVs dominating the other 2 interventions. Compared with standard care, NHVs increased QALYs (2.49 vs. 2.25) and costs ($81 327 vs. $76 705), resulting in an ICER of $19 570 per QALY gained.
