On 16 March, Network Director Ed Harding presented a case study on preventing hospital admissions in heart failure at the inaugural virtual Global Summit of the Partnership for Health System Sustainability and Resilience (PHSSR).

The presentation highlighted the socioeconomic burden of heart failure. Crucially, the COVID-19 pandemic is likely to have exacerbated existing heart failure due to the massive disruption to health services as well as the infection’s pathology.

The case study outlines recommendations to build health system sustainability and resilience by prioritising improvements in heart failure care – specifically a reduction in hospitalisations.

The PHSSR was founded by the World Economic Forum, the London School of Economics and Political Science and AstraZeneca.
