Patient-Reported Outcomes After Atrial Fibrillation Ablation
Atrial Fibrillation Tracker, Patient Improvement Data
2014 - 2019, N = 1549(a)
Patient-reported outcomes (PROs) are paramount to assessing disease progression, treatment efficacy, and health-related quality of life (HRQoL). Cleveland Clinic uses a web-based survey system (Atrial Fibrillation Tracker) to collect longitudinal PROs for atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation patients.
ᵃThe n = 1549 represents the number of patient follow-up surveys completed at 12 months post-ablation beginning January 1, 2014 through April 1, 2019. At 12 months post-ablation, 78% of AF ablation patients reported marked improvement with respect to their AF.
