The research project aims to perform data extraction, integration and analysis across multiple clinical, administrative, financial and pharmacy databases in the participating institutions. The key data components will include clinical cardiovascular specific data, procedural data, financial and administrative data (e.g. cost of medications and supplies, length of stay, diagnosis codes etc.), short-to-long term clinical outcomes (including hospital re-admissions, cardiovascular events, death), and quality-of-care indices (e.g. compliance to guideline-recommended therapy and medications). The research project will involve all patients proven and/or suspected with coronary artery disease (CAD), congestive heart failure (CHF) and atrial fibrillation (AF) admitted to National Heart Centre Singapore (NHCS) and NUH.
2018 Revision of Health Reimbursement in Japan recognized non face-to-face diagnostics, such as Online Treatment, as the standard of care. There was a significantly additional cost for Cardiovascular Implantable Electronic Devices (CIEDs) Management Fee as well. The adaption of Remote Monitoring for CIEDs patients is recommended by the societies based on the clinical evidences. However, how QALYs earned by CIEDs Remote Monitoring are justified in Japanese reimbursement environment from the cost-effectiveness standpoint is still not so clear. The evaluation about the impact on the health economics about the installation of CIEDs Remote Monitoring has not been enough due to the lack of the researches around this field. Therefore this research is designed to examine the impact of the installation of CIEDs Remote Monitoring from the health economics perspective by considering the health insurance system and the clinical process in Japan, through Systematic Review methodology.
Despite modern reperfusion strategies, myocardial infarction leads to deleterious processes resulting in left ventricular remodelling (LVR) and heart failure (HF). Several biomarkers i.e. galectin-3 (Gal-3) and soluble ST-2 protein are involved in LVR as a result of inflammatory processes and fibrosis. There is an evidence of a high prognostic value of both biomarkers in prediction of outcomes in HF patients. This study will further investigate the role of Gal-3 and ST-2 in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) treated with primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and without prior HF in prediction of unfavourable outcomes.
This study is a population-based, patient-level analysis of heart failure in England over a 5-year period using a dataset created by linking HES and NICOR databases. Our analyses will look into the re-occurrence of hospitalisation after the initial diagnosis of heart failure, the influence of population factors on risk of re-hospitalisation, and the resultant cost implications in an NHS environment.
The aim of the work is to Evaluate the efficacy, quality of life and safety of early addition of ivabradine to B-blocker in reduced EF heart failure patients after acute decompensation compared to the standard treatment.
To evaluate if Italian Cardiologists are treating Heart Failure (HF) patients according to International guidelines and if a structured educational program can improved their adherence.
An observational study using data from a large US electronic health record database to find participants hospitalized with ADHF who do not have a concurring heart attack
Introduction. Heart failure (HF) is the most prevailing chronic illness in the world. In Colombia, high morbidity and mortality rates because of HF are registered, as well as a significant burden of symptoms, frequent hospitalizations, poor quality of life, significant consumption of health resources and early mortality. It is necessary to propose novel strategies that can change the current picture. Objective: determine the efficacy of an intervention centered in decision taking for the handling of symptoms in adults with HF who live in the department of Cordoba, Colombia. Hypothesis Primary hypothesis: the intervention Decision taking for the handling of symptoms in adults with HF: 1) Increases self-care. Secondary hypothesis: 1) reduces clinical events: emergency care and hospitalizations, 3) Improves quality of life related to health.
The Prefect Pilot Study evaluates the use of the EC approved MyoStrain SENC CMR Imaging System to detect cardiotoxicity from drugs used to treat cancer (e.g. Breast Cancer and Lymphomas).
This study will assess the ability of a novel optical measurement system to determine changes in the hemodynamic status of heart failure patients admitted to the hospital with a primary diagnosis of acute decompensated heart failure. Patients will be measured with both the novel measurement system and reference devices that are FDA-cleared for hemodynamic measurements. The measurements from the novel system will be compared to reference variables describing hemodynamic and congestive status, including stroke volume, central venous pressure, and serum levels of NT-proBNP.
