Racial Disparities in Heart Failure (what are the predictors of heart failure and how do these predictors vary by race)

Project Purpose(s)

  • Disease Focused Research (congestive heart failure)

Scientific Approaches

Case-cohort disease of all heart failure patients within the registry
How do Social Determinants of Health affect the outcome of various Heart Failure populations?

Anticipated Findings

The implications of the social determinants of health in various HF population are dire and require focused interventions to
improve overall quality of care. The All of Us Registry is the best data available to determine how well are these patients treated
with "real-world" medical therapy. The demographic profile and predictors of worse outcomes are also noteworthy
