Comparison of Outcomes and Access to Care for Heart Failure (COACH)

Comparison of Outcomes and Access to Care for Heart Failure (COACH)

Funded by the Ontario SPOR Support Unit, the Comparison of Outcomes and Access to Care for Heart Failure (COACH) Trial is an acute heart failure strategy for adults with heart failure presenting to the emergency department. It consists of a computer algorithm to help doctors make decisions in the emergency department about the risk of their patient. For low-risk patients who are discharged home from the emergency department or after a short hospital stay, patients will be referred to a rapid follow-up clinic where the heart specialist team will rapidly assess and treat patients. The KT program is supporting the implementation of the COACH trial at 10 hospitals across Ontario and will inform the development of a scalable and sustainable implementation strategy for the COACH trial.
