A dedicated HF global registry
The Report HF Registry1 is a global, prospective registry that follows patients for 3 years after hospitalisation for HF. It aims to shed light on the quality of post-discharge care and factors linked to re-admission.
What they did
The Registry will collect data on HF patient demographics, co-morbidities, treatment, quality of life and health outcomes as well as economic data from approximately 300 health care sites in 40 countries. 1
The Registry aims to enrol and follow- up approximately 20,000 patients worldwide who are newly diagnosed with HF. 1
Resources and other practical implications
The clinical data collected in the REPORT- HF registry is likely to provide an important evidence base for health policy design and practice.
