A new heart failure risk calculator developed. Try it on-line!

A new calculator has been developed by iCor members at the Germans Trias i Pujol Hospital, which increases the precision in the prognosis of patients with heart failure (HF). It has been developed in collaboration with IMIM statisticians from the hospital HF patient’s data. The Barcelona bio-HF calculator allows identifying patients with worse prognosis to intensify treatment and follow-up, including demographic, treatment and clinical data, such as up to 3 different bio-markers.

It is available on-line at:
