Get With The Guidelines® - Heart Failure Clinical Tools

Get With The Guidelines®- Heart Failure (GWTG-HF) is much more than a data registry. It's a comprehensive program for supporting quality heart failure care, including a library of tools and resources to help improve processes and maximize effectiveness.

The library includes forms and tools that have proven successful at other hospitals participating in Get With The Guidelines-HF. We offer these documents only to give you an idea of other hospitals' solutions. By including the documents on this website, the American Heart Association does not represent that they are complete, accurate or efficacious, or that they follow all of the American Heart Association guidelines for secondary and primary prevention of cardiovascular events. Hospitals should design their order sets, discharge instructions and other tools based on their own procedures and professional experience.
