However, Virginia Mason is working on a new way to knock that number down. In June 2015, it launched the program Heart to Heart with partner Kelley-Ross Pharmacy Group to do home visits with patients with moderate-to-severe heart failure once a month for three months after being discharged. The program is in addition to phone conversations and follow-up visits patients have with their care providers at the Virginia Mason Heart Failure Clinic
