Unlocking Insights
in Heart Failure

LynxCare's comprehensive data network offers fresh insights into patients with heart failure (HF), including but not limited to comorbidity factors, treatment patterns, adverse events (HF related readmission, and median overall survival). With over 20.000 estimated patients and 235 variables measured, our granular and quality-controlled real-world dataset can unlock invaluable insights into the treatment and prognosis of heart failure, empowering clinicians to make informed decisions.

Closing the Gap
The Value of Unstructured Data in Heart Failure

Comorbidity Data Gap

The majority of clinical trials on heart failure exclude patients with significant comorbidities, which can lead to a lack of real-world representation. Our data asset offers insights into the relationship between specific comorbidities, adverse events, and treatment outcomes in heart failure patients, bridging this important knowledge gap and informing comprehensive care decisions. For example, our data reveals a higher prevalence of comorbidities such as chronic kidney disease (10%) (NLP enriched) compared to structured data alone (5%).

Reason for Treatment Line Switch

Structured data alone provides only a partial understanding of treatment decisions in heart failure. By combining structured data with rich EHR narrative data, we can gain deeper insights into the reasons for treatment line switches, such as adverse events and individual patient characteristics.
For instance, our data shows a higher detection rate of autoimmune diseases (13.5%) (NLP enriched) compared to structured data alone (4.7%).

Real-World Insights

Leveraging our real-world dataset, with a mean follow-up time of over four years, we can analyze adverse events, treatment patterns, and overall survival in heart failure patients in real time. These insights provide valuable information about the patient journey and can help guide treatment decisions.
