Organized Program to Initiate Lifesaving Treatment in Hospitalized Patients With Heart Failure (OPTIMIZE-HF): An Internet-based Registry and Process of Care Improvement Program for Heart Failure Patients

This program is designed to improve medical care and education of hospitalized patients with heart failure and accelerate the initiation of evidence-based heart failure guideline recommended therapies by administering them before hospital discharge. A registry component focusing on admission to discharge and 60- to 90-day follow-up is designed to evaluate the demographic, pathophysiologic, clinical, treatment, and outcome characteristics of patients hospitalized with heart failure.
