Heart failure (HF) treatment and prognosis are heavily influenced by the presence of noncardiac comorbid conditions. This article reviews the current evidence for the role of team-based care strategies to enhance care and improve outcomes in patients with HF with prevalent comorbidities. Few studies have evaluated the effects of team-based care on clinical and quality-of-life outcomes in patients with HF and specific comorbid conditions. Additional research is needed to clarify the impact and cost-effectiveness of team-based care for this population, particularly those patients with HF with multiple coexisting comorbid conditions.
