Processes and outcomes of congestive heart failure care by different types of primary care models.
This study compared treatment of congestive heart failure (CHF) with primary care physicians (PCPs), nurse practitioners (NPs), or shared with PCPs and NPs. The rate of emergency room (ER) visits and hospitalizations along with Medicare spending was tracked although most patients (73%) were treated by PCPs. Patients under the shared care model had a higher rate of ER visits and hospitalizations than the PCP model.
