Prevalence of heart failure (HF) in U.S. has risen to ~6.1 million among those ≥20 years of age. AoU provides a rich platform to identify HF patients through EHR (including clinical laboratory and imaging reports) and claims data. Ability to follow and collect data prospectively in the patients, including ancillary studies of more surveys and imaging/biomarker collections, could advance discovery science and address several clinically relevant questions in different HF patient subgroups.
