Effect of Nurse Practitioner CHF Case Management on Resource Utilization
Subramanian, Welsh, Lowery. Effect of Nurse Practitioner CHF Case Management on Resource Utilization. Paper presented at: VA HSR&D National Meeting; 2008 Feb 14; Baltimore, MD.
This quasi-experimental study evaluated the effect of a chronic heart failure (CHF) case management model run by nurse practioners (NPs) in a sample of VA medical centers to test the hypothesis that compared with patients receiving usual care, those receiving case management would have less resource utilization in terms of admissions, bed days of care, and outpatient visits.
