Recognition for demonstrating high levels of heart failure care
Heart failure is a debilitating illness that affects more Americans each year. To encourage more effective treatment and management, BTE worked with heart failure experts to develop measures to assess and reward superior clinician performance. These measures address a broad range of issues affecting patient health and wellness.
To earn Recognition, clinicians must meet benchmarks on measures such as:
- Beta Blocker therapy
- LV function assessment
- Appropriate ACE-I/ARB therapy
- Assessment of patient weight and activity level
- Patient education
Those who do will improve overall patient health and well being, while reducing the risk of potentially avoidable complications.
