Health structures explain nearly 20 percent of non-adherence to heart failure guidelines
Date:9/2/2014

at within country variation was higher than the variation across countries. Countries with a large variability in adherence to guidelines between centres need targeted approaches to improve access and quality of care. Those with low adherence overall need country-wide solutions."

When the researchers evaluated each health structure characteristic individually, they found that resource; payment and quality variables were strongly linked to adherence. For example, higher numbers of GPs per 1 000 population was associated with higher adherence to guidelines. Countries where GPs primarily worked in private practice or were paid for the services provided also had higher levels of adherence. Conversely, countries with no incentives to comply with guidelines had higher levels of non-adherence.

The researchers then conducted a multivariate analysis. They found that 18% of the variability in adherence to guidelines was explained by country health structures and the remaining 82% was accounted for by patient clinical variables. Provider incentives to comply with guidelines remained an influential factor in this analysis, although the strength of the association weakened. Patients with more advanced heart failure and comorbidities such as mitral regurgitation and COPD were more likely to receive recommended treatments.

Professor Maggioni said: "Our analysis shows that it is not only clinical factors that influence whether or not guidelines are implemented. Countries that have a specific programme to implement guidelines and that pay for them to be followed have a statistically significantly better adherence to recommended treatments."

He concluded: "The next step in the ESC's collaboration with the OECD is to see if these health structure characteristics and clinical variables are also associated with outcomes in patients with heart failure."
