AIMS: An in-depth understanding of the prognostic value of patient-reported outcomes (PRO) is essential to facilitate person-centred care in heart failure (HF). This study aimed to clarify the prognostic role of subjective mental and physical health status in patients with HF. METHODS AND RESULTS: Patients with HF were identified from the DenHeart Survey (n = 1,499) and PRO data were obtained at hospital discharge, including the EuroQol five-dimensional questionnaire (EQ-5D), the HeartQoL and the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS). Clinical baseline data were obtained from medical records and linked to nationwide registries with patient-level data on sociodemographics and healthcare contacts. Outcomes were all-cause and cardiovascular (CV) mortality, CV events and HF hospitalisation with one- and three-year follow-up.Analysing the PRO data on a continuous scale, a worse score in the following were associated with risk of all-cause and CV mortality after one year: the HeartQoL (adjusted HRs 1.91, 95% CI:1.42-2.57 and 2.17, 95% CI:1.50-3.15, respectively), the EQ-5D (adjusted HRs 1.26, 95% CI: 1.15-1.38 and 1.27, 95% CI: 1.13-1.42, respectively), the HADS depression subscale (adjusted HRs 1.12, 95% CI: 1.07-1.17 and 1.11, 95% CI: 1.05-1.17, respectively), and the HADS anxiety subscale (adjusted HRs 1.08, 95% CI: 1.03-1.13 and 1.09, 95% CI: 1.04-1.15, respectively). Three-year results were overall in concordance with the one-year results. A similar pattern was also observed for non-fatal outcomes. CONCLUSION: Health-related quality of life and symptoms of anxiety and depression at discharge were associated with all-cause and CV mortality at one- and three-year follow-up.

: All countries want to improve the health of their populations and to improve the quality of care and patient safety. Consequently, there is an ongoing need to assess and document population health, the quality of care and patient safety using valid and reliable data. This requires the ability to monitor the same individuals over time as they receive prevention, diagnostics, treatments, care and rehabilitation and experience improvements or deteriorations in their health or healthcare. This is,...

Patient reported outcome measures can help drive global patient centred healthcare reform, but we need a more efficient coordinated approach to assessment if we are to fully realise benefits for patients and society, say Melanie Calvert and colleagues

Objective The majority of cardiovascular diagnoses in the Danish National Patient Registry (DNPR) remain to be validated despite extensive use in epidemiological research. We therefore examined the positive predictive value (PPV) of cardiovascular diagnoses in the DNPR. Design Population-based validation study. Setting 1 university hospital and 2 regional hospitals in the Central Denmark Region, 2010–2012. Participants For each cardiovascular diagnosis, up to 100 patients from participating hosp...

Abstract Background Depression is associated with increased mortality amongst patients with chronic heart failure (HF). Whether depression is an independent predictor of outcome in patients admitted for worsening of HF is unclear. Methods OPERA-HF is an observational study enrolling patients hospitalized with worsening HF. Depression was assessed by the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS-D) questionnaire. Comorbidity was assessed by the Charlson Comorbidity Index (CCI). Kaplan–Meier and...

AimsA longitudinal and comprehensive analysis of health-related quality of life (HRQOL) was performed during hospitalization for heart failure (HF) or soon after discharge. Methods and resultsA post-hoc analysis was performed of the ASCEND-HF trial. The EuroQOL five dimensions questionnaire (EQ-5D) was administered to study participants at baseline, 24 h, discharge/day 10, and day 30. EQ-5D includes functional dimensions mapped to corresponding utility scores (i.e. 0 = death and 1 = perfect heal...

Aims: The 'epidemic' of heart failure seems to be changing, but precise prevalence estimates of heart failure and left ventricular dysfunction (LVD) in older adults, based on adequate echocardiographic assessment, are scarce. Systematic reviews including recent studies on the prevalence of heart failure and LVD are lacking. We aimed to assess the trends in the prevalence of LVD, and heart failure with reduced (HFrEF) and preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) in the older population at large. Metho...

Background The Danish National Patient Registry (DNPR) is one of the world’s oldest nationwide hospital registries and is used extensively for research. Many studies have validated algorithms for identifying health events in the DNPR, but the reports are fragmented and no overview exists.
