Our researchers are involved in a wide range of studies aimed at improving care for patients with atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) and heart failure.
This work includes:
- A study using artificial intelligence to scan electronic medical records that found the number of patients in the hospital with worsening heart failure was 2 times higher than what was observed in primary discharge diagnoses.
- Developing and studying a new risk calculator to help emergency department physicians determine which patients with acute heart failure should be hospitalized and which can safely be discharged and return home.
- A study that found Black patients with heart failure have higher rates of hospitalization for heart failure but lower rates of death than white patients with heart failure.
- Teaching computers how to read written notes in medical reports to make it easier for doctors and health systems to track and manage patients with aortic stenosis and other chronic heart conditions.
- Investigating whether medically tailored meals benefit recently hospitalized patients with heart failure and other conditions.
- Exploring whether remote telemonitoring can improve outcomes for patients with heart failure.
