Updates to Chronic Heart Failure (CHF) tool

Endorsed by the Regional Cardiac Council and Cardiac Care Network and built in a SOAP note format, this custom form offered by the eHealth Centre of Excellence's QBIC (Quality Based Improvements in Care) program is designed to provide clinical decision support for  management of heart failure directly in the clinician’s electronic medical record (EMR) with the New York Heart Association Classification used to determine the best practices for treatment of heart failure.

 

Based on the assessment, the template will help with determining which plan is most appropriate for your patient, with a plan section that includes triple therapy medication options and recommendations.

 

Recent updates to the tool include:

  • Updated medications to show the addition of Ivabradine (for management of stable heart related chest pain and heart failure not fully managed by beta blockers), and LCZ696 (Entresto) a combination of sacubitril and valsartan to replace ACEi or ARB in some cases
  • Included a notice to wait 36 hours before starting LCZ696 (Entresto)
  • Added link to eConsult (https://otnhub.ca/) at the bottom of form
  • Added forms for local referrals 
  • And more!

To learn more about these updates or to get set up with the CHF tool, please contact QBIC Change Management Specialist Rob Gordon at Rob.Gordon@ehealthCE.ca.
