IRB No. 19-105-1 (Dr. Sara Tabtabai, PI): Guideline Directed Medication Titration Program in Patients with Heart Failure with reduced Ejection Fraction
A patient newly diagnosed with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction requires close follow up for titration of medications as blood pressure, electrolytes and symptoms permit. Although the benefits of guideline directed medical therapy (GDMT) have been well studied, there remains a significant gap in the receipt of GDMT in the ambulatory and hospitalized setting. As such, we seek to assess the utility of focused GDMT clinic to reduce this gap. We hypothesize that implementation of a GDMT focused clinic will reduce the gap, improve medication compliance and in turn, improve the mean ejection fraction, and reduce hospitalization rates.
