Lenus Health's Heart Failure Service enables new efficiencies in the diagnostic pathway to provide responsive, high quality services and scale elective recovery and early diagnosis.


The human and financial cost of HF is large and growing worldwide. Early diagnosis and initiation of heart failure treatment reduces the risk of hospitalisation and death, but the diagnostic pathway is complex and often delayed by operational or system level issues.

How it works

Patients share info and answer PROs to complete a self-assessment through their smartphone or tablet

Clinicians access their full clinical dashboard integrating shared patient data with historic clinical data, AI-assisted diagnostics, appointment management and electronic health records

Clinicians review and respond with outcome or arrange further actions as required with a letter generated and sent to patients' EHR and primary care provider

This service is available on a cost-per-patient basis for a minimum period of 12 months.

Exact costs depend on the number of patients, duration of the trial and integrations with existing systems. This includes patient management systems (PMS) and electronic records (EMR/EHR).
