The purpose of this study is to obtain single-center safety and feasibility data on patients managed with reduced anti-coagulation, and the incidence of thrombotic and bleeding adverse events associated with the HeartMate 3 LVAS therapy.
The purpose of this study is to Evaluate the Safety of DILATREND SR Cap. in Korean Patients with Essential hypertension, Chronic stable angina and Congestive heart failure for 52 weeks.
The Day-Care Unit for Patients With Refractory Heart Failure (DayCare-HF) is an observational study on selected patients with advanced refractory heart failure. The purpose of the study was to examine the comprehensive management of HF in the day-care unit in terms of the safety and its impact on the rehospitalization and mortality rates in patients with advanced refractory HF.
The purpose of the research is to help researchers understand changes in metabolism in patients that develop heart failure.
The purpose of this study is to look at kidney function and hormonal function in patients with a history of heart failure and kidney dysfunction, and to see how the use of a new drug, ANX-042, affects those functions.
In this study, patients will be prospectively enrolled for data collection to design prediction models that integrate claims data (inpatient, outpatient, and pharmacy), electronic health record data (on clinical, social, and behavioral indicators), and patient-generated activity data. Patients will be randomized to use either a smartphone or a wearable activity tracking device to capture patient-generated health data.

Behavioral problems are part of many of the chronic diseases that cause the majority of illness, disability and death. Tobacco, diet, physical inactivity, alcohol, drug abuse, failure to take treatment, sleep problems, anxiety, depression, and stress are major issues, especially when chronic medical problems such as heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, or kidney disease are also present. These behavioral problems can often be helped, but the current health care system doesn't do a good job of getting the right care to these patients. Behavioral health includes mental health care, substance abuse care, health behavior change, and attention to family and other psychological and social factors. Many people with behavioral health needs present to primary care and may be referred to mental health or substance abuse specialists, but this method is often unacceptable to patients. Two newer ways have been proposed for helping these patients. In co-location, a behavioral health clinician (such as a Psychologist or Social Worker) is located in or near the primary practice to increase the chance that the patient will make it to treatment. In Integrated Behavioral Health (IBH), a Behavioral Health Clinician is specially trained to work closely with the medical provider as a full member of the primary treatment team. The research question is: Does increased integration of evidence-supported behavioral health and primary care services, compared to simple co-location of providers, improve outcomes? The key decisions affected by the research are those made at the practice level: whether and how best to use behavioral health services. For patients, whether to seek out or accept offered behavioral health services will be influenced by the manner they are made available. The investigators plan to do a study of 40 practices which will each start off using co-location. Over time, each one will convert to IBH using a practice improvement method that has helped in other settings. The investigators will measure the health status of patients in each practice before and after they start using IBH. The investigators will compare the change in those outcomes to health status changes of patients in practices who have not yet started using IBH. The investigators plan to study adults who each have both medical and behavioral problems, and get their care in Family Medicine clinics, General Internal Medicine practices, and Community Health Centers.
The purpose of this study is to collect simultaneous surface electrocardiogram (ECG) recordings and Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT) intracardiac electrogram (IEGM) recordings of variations in electrical synchrony.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the application of Negative AV Hysteresis (NAVH) to improve electrical synchrony in MultiPoint Pacing (MPP) Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT) patients.
