This study will evaluate the efficacy of home telemonitoring as an intervention to decrease hospital readmissions in patients at high risk for readmission. The overall readmission rate for high-risk MCF hospital patients is approximately 20%. Currently a system is in place to identify and score all MCF patients for their risk of readmission. This score is based on multiple variables including but not limited to: co-morbid conditions, patient's health literacy, whether they are a Medicare/Medicaid patient, their in-home social support, and whether they have had prior hospital admissions within the previous year. The literature shows that home telemonitoring of patients has had mixed results for effectiveness at preventing hospitalizations and emergency department visits. Many of these reports have restricted studies to patients with specific diseases or general characteristics; some have shown improved results while others have not. No study has examined patients who are high risk for readmission to determine if home telemonitoring for 30 days post-discharge reduces the risk for 30-day readmission.

Phase I: To investigate maximum tolerated dose (MTD), safety and tolerability, pharmacokinetics, exploratory biomarker and efficacy of BI 836858 monotherapy in patients with low or intermediate-1 risk myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) with symptomatic anemia. Phase II: To investigate safety and efficacy of BI 836858 plus Best Supportive Care compared to Best Supportive Care alone in low or intermediate-1 risk MDS patients with symptomatic anemia without a deletion 5q cytogenetic abnormality.
Jacksonville, Fla., Rochester, Minn.
This study is being done to determine whether or not new blood test(s) can determine the severity of heart conditions. Aortic stenosis, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, mitral regurgitation, aortic regurgitation, artificial heart valve regurgitation or stenosis, and tricuspid valve regurgitation associated with pacemaker leads are the cardiac disorders under study. The blood tests involve analysis for von Willebrand Factor antigen and activity, von Willebrand Factor multimers, and brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels. The results of the blood tests will be compared to the information from the clinically-indicated echocardiogram and one blood test compared to another.
