Abstract: Improvement in treatment of congestive heart failure (CHF) has resulted in a decrease in mortality and hospitalisations in patients with CHF. However, no cure is available which makes better management of CHF of paramount importance. Therefore, the H2020 HeartMan project was developed to provide accurate advice on disease management adapted to each patient through the use of a Decision Support System (DSS), telemonitoring and a mobile application. Recently, health-related Quality of Life (HRQoL) has gained increasing attention since it was shown to be related to mortality. The aim of this study was to identify key predictors of HRQoL in CHF patients. This information will be used to develop the DSS for HeartMan.
