Congestive Heart Filur is an epidemic and its trajectory apppears to be escaling. Undoubtly tremendous gains have seen improvement in life expectancy and quality of life, however, hospital readmissions, resource utilization and health system cost continue to create challenges. In this short perspective, we raise the prospect of extending the research phases the community and real world setting. Logistic have supported service supply chains during the COVID-19 pandemic and there are lesson here to be learned.

Keywords: Clinical research, heart failure, logistics, regression, triage, logical progression.
