Heart Failure Clinical Trial
Virtual Care to Improve Heart Failure Outcomes (VITAL-HF)
The purpose of this study is to evaluate how safe and effective a remote, digital intervention is that helps clinicians use and optimally adjust heart failure medications, compared to usual care medication use and adjustment, in participants with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction
Age >18 years of age
Diagnosis of HF and LVEF <40% on most recent imaging assessment within 1 year prior to screening. Any validated method for assessing LVEF may be used for enrollment including echocardiogram, cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, etc. For participants with an LVEF reported qualitatively (e.g., moderate LV dysfunction) or as a range on the most recent imaging assessment that includes 40% (e.g., 35-45%), then the site investigator should review the imaging study and determine if the participant has an LVEF <40%. Participants with a new diagnosis of HFrEF may be enrolled. The enrollment will be monitored to ensure no more than 50% of the total cohort have new-onset HFrEF.
