Examples of what has been done

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.
