Study Finds National Heart Failure Hospitalizations Increased From 2014 Onwards

A study published in JAMA Cardiology sought to identify the national trends of overall hospitalizations, unique patient hospitalizations, and readmissions based on the number of visits in a given year. Specifically, from 2010 to 2017, for hospitalizations with a primary diagnosis of heart failure (HF), they sought to establish what were the national trends of overall hospitalizations, unique patient hospitalizations, and readmissions based on the number of visits in a given year.

The cohort study of 8,273,270 HF hospital admissions from January 2010 to December 2017, obtained from the Nationwide Readmission Database, showed that the rates for overall hospitalization, unique patient hospitalizations, and postdischarge HF readmissions declined between 2010 and 2014, followed by an increase between 2014 and 2017.

Per this analysis, the study found national HF hospitalizations (overall hospitalizations, unique hospitalizations, and readmissions) have been increasing from 2014 onwards.
