Heart Failure is a chronic disease that can progress to an advanced state. Several studies have shown that referral to a comprehensive heart failure disease management center can improve outcomes. Recognition of the signs and symptoms of advanced heart failure allows for timely referral for advanced heart failure therapies including heart transplant and ventricular assist devices. Using risk models and identifying sentinel clinical features can help clinicians refer patients early allowing for improved outcomes. Comprehensive heart failure disease management programs also can facilitate palliative care interventions for those who are not candidates for or who do not wish advanced therapies.
