Editorial

“Optimize Brasil” is a practical and objective tool developed in partnership with the Department of Heart Failure (DEIC) of the Brazilian Society of Cardiology and Servier, the main objective is to guide the process of therapy optimization of patients hospitalized for decompensated heart failure, both in pre-discharge phase as well as in maintaining the post-discharge multidisciplinary outpatient follow-up.

The implementation of Optimize Brasil in different centers in Brazil has contributed to improving the care of HF, especially during the vulnerable phase that has a high rehospitalization rate and following the recommendations of the national and international guidelines.

This project certainly can determine an important impact on prognosis, which contributes to improving the quality of life and reduces the risk of rehospitalization and death in these patients.”
