European long-term heart failure registry
The European Society of Cardiology has set up a long-term heart failure registry that records the characteristics and treatment of people with heart failure in cardiology centres.
The registry was set up in 2011 and collects data in cardiology centres on:
- patient characteristics
- diagnostics, therapeutic treatment and follow-up of people with heart failure in cardiology practices
- organisation of heart failure management across countries
- adherence to clinical guidelines and their effect on health outcomes.
What has it achieved?
So far, more than 30 countries have taken part in the registry and, in the first year, 10,000 patients were enrolled.
