Multidisciplinary care team panel, Sofia
The need for collaboration in heart failure (HF) care led to the development of multidisciplinary group discussion meetings at a university hospital in Sofia, Bulgaria, making use of optimal features of the hospital’s IT system.
The multidisciplinary group includes doctors from a wide range of specialties. Treatment of patients with complex HF with comorbidities is discussed at the multidisciplinary meetings.
So far, the meetings have helped improve diagnosis and treatment strategies in several cases. They take place every day, although the condition of any given patient is only considered for discussion again if it deteriorates and a new strategy is needed.
