A study to observe treatment patterns in patients in Colombia who have heart failure (HEATCO)
Researchers want to learn more about the treatments doctors choose to treat heart failure.
Heart failure means the heart isn’t pumping as well as it should be. Heart failure can lead to other serious medical conditions, and it can lead to hospitalization or death.
There are different types of treatments available for people who have heart failure, and these work in different ways. In this study, the researchers will collect information about Colombian patients who have heart failure.
The main purpose of this study is to identify patterns in the treatments that doctors first prescribe to heart failure patients in Columbia. To do this, the researchers will review information from the patients’ medical records and from a drug-dispensing database.
The study will include adult patients who have been diagnosed with heart failure in Columbia from June 1st, 2019 to May 31st, 2020.
There will be no required visits, treatments, or procedures in this study. The researchers will collect information about the treatments the patients have been prescribed by their own doctors.
- Adult patients (older than 18 years) with a diagnosis of HF according to ICD-10 with a dispensing of some medicine and it is registered in the database of Audifarma S.A. during the observation period will be included
