A program developed by the Heart Failure Society of America
The Optimal Medical Therapy in Heart Failure Certificate Program (OMT-HF) is an assessment-based certificate program that recognizes the critical role that non-heart failure specialists play in optimal medical therapy (OMT) for patients with heart failure, and seeks to help them develop the skills needed to assess the condition of patients with heart failure and apply practical aspects of optimal medical management, specifically focused on heart failure medications, from initiation to titration to target doses to optimal management overtime.
The Optimal Medical Therapy Certificate Program (OMT-HF) was developed by the Heart Failure Society of America (HFSA) to close the gap in guideline-directed medical therapy (GDMT) and implementation. OMT provides guidance to practitioners who treat patients with HF but don’t specialize in Advanced HF and are seeking an update on the optimal utilization and dosing of the latest evidence-based treatments.
