The Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR) and Rand Corporation convened a panel of experts to review published studies on care of the patient with heart failure. The outcome was the Clinical Practice Guideline for the evaluation and care of patients with left ventricular systolic dysfunction, published in June 1994. This article reviews key points in the clinical practice guideline and summarizes important areas for future research to improve patient outcomes.
