The grant will assist Windham Hospital's efforts to reduce the number of readmissions to the hospital from patients with heart failure. The quality initiative will provide two targeted education programs for staff, community providers, local nursing facilities and home care agencies to help increase compliance with discharge instructions. As a result, there will be standard messages that will reduce the rate of readmissions.
