Heart Failure Care by Provider Type


Acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF) care that is delivered by cardiologists appears to result in greater adherence to heart failure core measures than when such care is provided by non-cardiologists, according to a study. ADHF patients had lower rates of mortality and 6-month hospital readmission rates when treated by cardiologists.
