Case study from Heart Failure Policy Toolkit

A global heart failure registry

29 September, 2015

The REPORT-HF registry1 is a global, prospective registry that follows people with heart failure for three years after hospitalisation. It aims to shed light on the quality of post-discharge care and factors linked to readmission.

The registry will collect data on HF patient demographics, comorbidities, treatment, quality of life and health outcomes, as well as economic data from approximately 300 healthcare sites in 40 countries.1 It aims to enrol and follow-up around 20,000 people who are newly diagnosed with heart failure across the world. 1

The clinical data collected in the REPORT-HF registry is likely to provide an important evidence base for health policy design and practice.
