The CARE-HK in HF is a registry study based on the hypothesis that adherence to guidelines is associated with improved real-world outcomes for heart failure (HF) patients. For the purpose of this study, adherence to guidelines is defined as 1) adherence to potassium (sK+) monitoring recommendations, and 2) adherence to renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system inhibitor (RAASi) treatment recommendations, according to the most current local guidelines at the time of assessment. The study aims to evaluate real-world RAASi treatment patterns in clinical practice compared with the guideline-directed medical therapy (GDMT) recommendations. Factors associated with patients achieving GDMT will be evaluated to identify potential barriers.
