Welcome to CHFCare.org

  • CHFCare.org was created to meet a simple need: A practical website without fluff or nonsense to guide heart failure management. 
  • We discuss only the facts. What works. What doesn’t. What to do. When to do it. When to stop it. 
  • This site was created by and is curated by practicing clinicians for practicing clinicians-in other words practicality rules. 
  • Editorial board is chaired by a board certified heart failure and transplant cardiologist (Chief Medical Editor) and co-chaired by a CHF ARNP (Managing  Editor)  
  • We welcome your insight and comments.

Thank you for your care and commitment to patients!

Achieve Clinical Excellence

“Stop chasing quality measures and transform your current program into a high performing CHFCare System.”  

  • Move beyond a CHF clinic to a CHFCare system with the appropriate structure and processes to consistently deliver high quality outcomes 
  • CHFCare Systems are designed to provide consistent clinical excellence-every patient, every time
  • Quality is NOT an outcome; Quality is an attribute of the outcome
  • CHFCare Systems integrate with  electronic medical records to facilitate care communications for perfect patient handoffs
  • Tools such as “STEPPED CARE” medication titration, health status tracking tool (HST) and our proprietary success inventory tools (SITs) are fully integrated
  • The first deliverable lays out a comprehensive assessment of your current program and areas of excellence and identifies deficits and challenges.
  • Through iterative participatory action research (iPAR), continuous quality improvement and adaptive systematic change are designed into every CHFCare system
