HEARTS "Heart function Assessment Registry Trial in Saudi Arabia"  is a national medical registry of the heart failure disease in all major geographical regions of Saudi Arabia

The main goal of Hearts registry is to study the current practice patterns in the management of patients with acute HF in order to assess the gap between practice & evidence to improve the quality of cardiac care provided to such large population.

A furthermore strategic goal of this study is to establish heart function clinics across the country that will reduce the morbidity and hopefully the mortality of the heart failure disease by managing high-risk chronic HF patients.

Our Objectives

►To describe a comprehensive view (E.R/In-patient/Out-patient) of    the current causes, diagnostic & treatment strategies, short and long-term prognosis for patients with HF (systolic versus diastolic).

►To identify opportunities to improve the care of patients with HF through implementation of quality initiative programs

►To create a permanent database tool for continuous quality measurement useful to both country-wide studies and to individual hospitals seeking to improve quality of care & allow comparison with local and national practice patterns (i.e: NOT how to choose a hospital when seeking cardiac care since the involved hospitals will be kept anonymous in the publication process)

►To evaluate practice trends in the proper use of old &/or new tests medications & devices, & encourage use of those with clear evidence and thus raise the standard of care & reduce the gap between guidelines and "real-life" practice.

►To foster collaborative interaction with other cardiovascular outcome assessment projects ..... Read more 

Ethical Considerations

An ethics approval letter will be obtained from the ethics committee of each individual participated hospital.

There is no consent form to be collected from each individual patient in this registry for the reason that Individuals' names & identities are un-identified designed to be encrypted during the whole study period starting from data entry & ending by the publications.
