Heart Failure is a condition in which the heart too weak to pump enough blood to the body's other organs. The entire body depends on the oxygen and nutrient-rich blood delivered by the heart for proper function. Heart failure may result from narrowed arteries that supply blood to the heart itself -- coronary artery disease. A past heart attack, extreme obesity, and/or high blood pressure may also contribute to heart failure.

The risk-adjusted readmission rate of Medicare patients who were readmitted to the hospital for any reason within 30 days of being discharged from their initial heart failure related hospital admissions (CMS)
