  • Post-discharge Early Assessment With Remote Video Link (PEARL) Initiative: A Randomized Controlled Trial (PEARL) Rochester, Minn., Austin, Minn.

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether a video visit with an advanced practice provider (APP (Nurse practitioner or Physician assistant) within 7 days after discharge from Hospital Internal Medicine services at Saint Marys Hospital will increase patient adherence with medication, self-management, and home support post-hospital discharge (primary outcome). We will also evaluate subsequent 7- and 30- day emergency department visits and hospital re-admissions (secondary outcome). Patients enrolled in the study will undergo 1:1 randomization: video-visit + usual care (intervention arm) and usual care (control arm).  Participants in each arm will participate in a telephone survey 4-6 days after hospital discharge reviewing discharge medication and self-management.
