In brief: Yes

Survival as a measure by itself and event-free, meaningful survival as a whole have improved through research and evidence-based practice of cardiology.
Over the past 10 years or so, our better understanding of the disease, better medication regimen, and device therapy have made patient's survival longer and their quality of life better.

In brief: Absolutely

Medications, electrical devices (pacemakers, defibrillators), surgical treatments (including lvads and heart transplant) have more than doubled the survival of patients with heart failure in the last 10-15 years.
