About the program

The Optimize Heart Failure Care program is designed to improve the management of heart failure patients from hospital discharge, and during follow-up. Patients with heart failure are at high risk of being readmitted to hospital, particularly in the very first month after hospital discharge. So hospitalization for heart failure has been identified as a key opportunity to optimize heart failure therapy. To do so, the Optimize Heart Failure Care program provides a set of tool for health care professionals which should help them optimize heart failure care in 3 easy steps from before hospital discharge to patient follow-up.

The objective of the Optimize Heart Failure Care website is to share local heart failure care programs that have been implemented in countries around the world, to share experience from each and every country.
