Unmet need in heart failure

Heart failure hospitalizations and mainly early re hospitalization are a matter of concern. These are among current challenges in the management of the heart failure patients, along with high mortality and reduced quality of life. And the vulnerable phase in the 30-day post-discharge is known to be a period of high risk for heart failure patients. This could be due to compromised cardiac function, particularly systolic function. Thus, it is of the utmost importance to improve systolic function rapidly, with a call to action from hospital onwards. Several hospital-based strategies have been proven to reduce recurrent hospitalizations. The keys to success are patient education, optimization of treatment, and continuity of care.
