GRA Get With The Guidelines - Heart Failure Toolkit

GRA Quality Improvement Team


Welcome to the Get With The Guidelines® - Heart Failure Toolkit

Right now, 5.7 million Americans are living with heart failure.  An additional 670,000 new cases are diagnosed annually, up from 500,000 a few years ago.  With the aging of the population, the problem is poised to reach epidemic proportions in coming years, taking a tremendous toll in quality of life as well as longevity.  Moreover, the cost of providing heart failure care ranks among the leading U.S. healthcare expenditures.

Our team has created this Heart Failure Tool Kit with Strategies and Clinical Tools to help you improve heart failure care and reduce admissions.
