Abstract: Heart failure is a global health issue that affects millions of people worldwide, and is the main cause of disability and hospitalisation of elderly people. Approximately half of these have heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) and this proportion is increasing as the population ages. There is still no efficient treatment for HFpEF and today’s existing therapies only aim at relieving symptoms. With the aim to unravelling the pathophysiology of HFpEF and identify new therapeutic targets, ongoing long-time studies are collecting patient’s data, including the genomic information. This procedure is complex and requires electronically-stored health information to keep the patient’s information centralised to simplify the following up. In this paper, we present an computational system to support researchers in the different stages of a clinical study, and we describe its use in the management and analyse of HFpEF cohorts.
