A google-handsearch was done to detect already existing national and EU registers. Keywords used were „heart failure registry“, „heart registry“, heart failure audit“ and the several EU/ EUnetHTA country-names.
There are no specific registries to monitor or register the use of structured telephone support for heart failure specifically. If a national registry is already existing and/or the EU registry is used/ planned to be used there needs to be no further register installed for telemonitoring in heart failure patients.
The telemonitoring aspects – at least „on telemonitoring yes/no“, what kind of telemonitoring is used, entry-exit date – can be easily added into an existing registry.
Several existing heart registries were found among Europe.
