Heart failure continues to burden the American healthcare system. Disease management programs and transitional care services are used by hospitals to help patients living with congestive heart failure (CHF) transition from the hospital to home life. Twelve articles were chosen to evaluate the effectiveness of a multidisciplinary approach in reducing hospital readmission rates, cost, and death. One article was chosen to see how a nurse-led 1:1 patient educational approach was effective, and one article evaluated patients’ perception on living with CHF. This paper aims to evaluate the best educational approach on reducing hospital readmission rates, death, and cost in CHF patients.
