Research Article: Preferences for Monitoring Comprehensive Heart Failure Care: A Latent Class Analysis

The study examined patient preferences for monitoring systems in chronic heart failure using a best-worst scaling experiment and latent class analysis. Four distinct preference classes were identified, with different priorities such as mobility, monitoring frequency, and risk factors. Despite varied preferences, most classes favored therapies with significant improvements in mobility, mortality, and hospitalization. This approach enables personalized treatment options, enhancing clinical decision-making and data interpretation.
