Sharon Regional selected for nationwide Heart Failure registry


Sharon Regional Health System is participating in a new nationwide registry to collect and analyze demographic and treatment data about patients hospitalized for the treatment of Congestive Heart Failure (CHF).

ADHERE, the Acute Decompensated Heart Failure National Registry, is a joint venture between Sharon Regional's Emergency Care Center and Heart Institute. The Registry will create a unique national database of information on tens of thousands of CHF patients gathered from more than 200 U.S. hospitals over the next several years.

"This is an excellent project that will assist us in monitoring and improving the care of acute decompensation of CHF," stated Sergio Segarrra, M.D., director of emergency medicine who is overseeing the project along with cardiologist James P. Landis, Jr., M.D. "The ADHERE registry is working with top hospitals in the country in cardiac care and we're honored to have been chosen to participate."

Last month Sharon Regional announced the availability of a new outpatient treatment program for congestive heart failure patients involving the administration of [email protected], a specialized heart medication previously only available to inpatients with CHF.
