New Med-HF App helps physicians better manage heart-failure meds for patients

Libin Cardiovascular Institute of Alberta

Thanks to a new made-in-Alberta iPhone application — Med-HF — that puts comprehensive medication and side-effects information at the fingertips of Alberta’s physicians and pharmacists, more heart failure patients will be feeling better faster.

Designed by Alberta Health Services (AHS) in collaboration with the University of Alberta, Med-HF’s interactive, step-by-step instructions help clinicians to determine the appropriate dosage of medication and how best to manage complications as they arise, including side effects to medication, interaction with other medications, and other conditions, such as diabetes or other heart diseases.
