Currently, 460 US hospitals are enrolled in GWTG-HF and are treating more than 275,000 heart failure patients. In March 2009, The Joint Commission and the American Heart Association announced advanced certification in heart failure to recognize centers that make exceptional efforts to foster better outcomes for heart failure patients. The Joint Commission requires hospitals to be a recognized participant in the association's GWTG-HF program before they can apply for advanced certification.

"The American Heart Association is very sensitive to this issue. We have a tool that works. Get With The Guidelines-Heart Failure has been proven to improve quality of care which improves outcomes. We believe that hospitals that seek to improve outcomes for these patients should consider the quality focused approach that the American Heart Association has pioneered, tested and validated. We are a science driven patient-centric organization and we are committed to improving outcomes for all patients with cardiovascular disease and stroke."
