More than1 million people were suffering from heart failure (HF) in France in 2017. The ageing population and financial constraints have put a great strain on the French healthcare system. Value-based healthcare (VBHC) is emerging as a possible solution to build a more efficient healthcare system. The objectives are to define and rank the most valued outcomes in medical care for patients affected by heart failure and to better understand patients’ expectations for healthcare organizations and patient support services.
