Background: Improved treatment of congestive heart failure (CHF) has resulted in a decrease in mortality and hospitalisations in patients with CHF. However, no cure is available making better management of CHF of paramount importance. Therefore, the H2020 HeartMan project was developed to provide accurate advice on disease management adapted to individual patient through the use of a Decision Support System (DSS), telemonitoring and a mobile application.
Purpose: The aim of this study was to identify key predictors of HRQoL in patients with CHF, focussing on modifiable parameters. This information will enable the DSS, which is the core of the HeartMan project, to provide evidence-based advice that may improve the patient’s outcome.
