How the programme works

Personal service

Experienced healthcare professionals provide you with support by phone. You check your weight daily and answer questions about your symptoms on the device that you're given as part of the programme. That way, early warning signals can be detected, thus helping prevent your condition from deteriorating and allowing you to take measures at an early stage.

Simply sign up

Look on the Swiss Heart Foundation website (in German) to see whether you have symptoms of heart failure.

To sign up, complete the consent form (PDF in German) and send it to Health Care Systems GmbH (HCSG).
