Heart Failure Quality Data

Heart failure is a weakening of the heart's pumping power. About five million patients in the United States have HF, and more than 550,000 patients are newly diagnosed with HF each year. It is primarily a condition of the elderly; more Medicare dollars are spent for the diagnosis and treatment of HF than for any other diagnosis. This measure shows how often our medical center gave recommended treatments to our patients who had heart failure during the first quarter of 2013.
