Clinical Trial Summary

Patients with heart failure (IC), after hospitalization, have a marked fragility: in France, in the first year, 29% die and 45% are readmitted to IC. Interventions improving the coordination of care providers at the time of discharge from hospitalization were tested; they showed a reduction in readmissions for IC (relative risk (RR) from 0.51 to 0.74) and all-cause mortality (RR 0.75 to 0.87). The Patient Return Program IC (PRADO IC), set up by the Health Insurance, offers assistance in the initiation of outpatient medical monitoring, and a nursing follow-up of 2 to 6 months depending on the patient's severity. The trial of PRADO began in the second half of 2013, and the first evaluation showed that the time to first treatment was significantly shorter, and that the readmissions rate and the 6-month death rate were unchanged.

This study was of epidemiological type, comparative before-elsewhere. The difficulty of controlling for confounders in this type of study limits the scope of these conclusions. The efficacy hypothesis of PRADO IC is therefore always posed in the French context
