In Heart Failure, Where You Have Been May Be More Important Than Where You Are: A Role for Patient-Reported Outcomes

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial

Abstract

Current advanced care for patients with heart failure requires unique resources available only at a few large institutions. As a result, end-stage heart failure patients are often referred for care by teams who lack the insight of their regular primary cardiologist into their unique disease trajectory. This situation may result in clinical missteps. By tapping into a patient's familiarity with their own trajectory through the use of patient-reported outcome metrics however, it is possible that this problem may be easily addressed.
