Abstract (Summary)

This study analyzed the effect of gender in the utilization of chronic care for patients with congestive heart failure in the geriatric population. The study predicted that women ages 65 years and older with a diagnosis of congestive heart failure have better health outcomes which may be related to their increase participation with care coordination in chronic care programs. The Statistical Package for Social Services (SPSS) was utilized to analyze the 2011-2012 California Health Interview Survey (CHIS) using Chi Square statistics. Literature review determined that there is a gender difference in the presentation of heart failure between male and female patients and an identifiable difference in the overall health outcome between male and female heart failure patients. The results of this study did not show a significant relationship between gender and use of care coordination of chronic care programs for geriatric patients with congestive heart failure.
