If you volunteer to take part in this study, the study team will ask you to do the following:
We will randomly determine which group you will be assigned to. One group will receive our standard hospital discharge process. The second group will receive: - extra assistance with the discharge process - telephone calls from one of our nurses after discharge - a device you can take home with you that can send information about your heart rate, blood pressure, and weight back to the hospital.
We will ask you to complete a baseline survey after you enroll in the study. You will also complete a telephone survey 3 times over the 6 months after your discharge. We will review your hospital records over the six months after your discharge.
After you have completed the 4th and final survey, your participation in the study has ended. You will be asked to return the devices to the research team using prepaid shipping materials.
