The ICHOM Set of Patient-Centered Outcome Measures for Heart failure is the result of hard work by a group of leading physicians, measurement experts and patients. It is our recommendation of the outcomes that matter most to persons with Heart failure. We urge all providers around the world to start measuring these outcomes to better understand how to improve the lives of their patients.
- Includes dyspnoea, fatigue and tiredness, disturbed sleep, and peripheral oedema.
- Includes health-related quality of life, maximum physical exertion.
- Includes depression and anxiety, confidence and self-esteem.
- Includes admissions, appointments.

All of the basic information you need to implement ICHOM Sets is available in the links above.
However, for a faster, more easily integrated process, we offer digitised versions of the Set measures. These are designed for immediate upload to existing EMR systems.
This is available as part of our Accreditation package, which recognises your work in putting patient outcomes at the heart of treatment.
