PURPOSE: Pulmonary Hypertension (PH) is a progressive group of diseases that remains difficult to treat and carries significant morbidity and mortality despite available medical therapy. There are currently minimal guidelines on chronic outpatient management and prevention of hospitalization owing to the low number of patients and orphan status of the disease. In contrast, congestive heart failure (CHF) outpatient management interventions have been investigated in multiple trials. A common reason for admission in PH and CHF is heart failure exacerbation. The disease states share similar dietary and fluid management challenges, disease management and compliance issues. CHF has well established intervention models that have successfully decreased hospital readmission rates and mortality. We aimed to analyze outpatient CHF disease management interventions that have shown reductions in hospital readmissions and mortality as a starting point for developing an outpatient pulmonary hypertension intervention and management plan.
