Congestive Heart Failure

Overview

The Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) Program is the third state-wide disease management program developed by the Community Care networks.


The program provides resources for clinicians as they follow evidence based clinical practice guidelines in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with CHF. The American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) Guidelines for the Evaluation and Management of Chronic Heart Failure in the Adult are used as the basis of the program.


In addition, case managers work intensively with high risk heart failure patients to promote self management and focus on the importance of dietary changes, exercise, daily weights, adherence to prescribed medications, and recognition of warning signs of worsening symptoms.
