5 Reasons You Can’t Afford to Miss CV Transforum Fall’22

Thursday, August 18, 2022 | Lori Walsh

CV Transforum is returning to Austin, TX, Oct. 6 – 8 for three-days of cutting-edge education and unparalleled networking opportunities!

Over the last few years, the COVID pandemic and subsequent “Great Resignation” have made a complex healthcare environment even more volatile. With the healthcare industry under excessive pressure, CV Transforum provides an opportunity to connect with fellow leaders and industry innovators; learn how to optimize your program with education focused on cardiovascular innovation, strategy, finance, operations and clinical; and transform cardiovascular care by discovering best practices and organizational performance solutions.


What’s the lineup?

The Fall agenda features a diverse array of sessions on hot topics in cardiovascular management – from “Battling Physician Burnout” and “The Future of Cardiology: Embracing Disruption” to “A Compelling Case For an ASC” and “Ensuring Efficiency in the Cath Lab.” Explore the agenda here.


1. Come For CV Education, Stay For the Music 

CV Transforum coincides with the Austin City Limits Music Festival, featuring an impressive lineup of acts with nine stages and 100+ performances across two weekends (Oct. 7 – 9 and 14 – 16). Make the most out of your Austin experience by attending both CV Transforum and Austin City Limits! Book your hotel room in MedAxiom’s block at the JW Marriott ASAP as rooms are filling up quickly due to Austin City Limits. The discounted group rate expires Sept. 7.

2. Return on Intelligence

Attending CV Transforum provides proven ROI – return on intelligence. The knowledge gained during the conference will pay dividends as you return to your program to share best practices with colleagues, develop strategies to navigate emerging challenges, and implement new technologies that improve efficiency and lower costs. Attending CV Transforum is an investment in your journey as a cardiovascular leader and we guarantee your program will benefit from your experience.

3. Keynote Session Featuring Raphael Rakowski

He’s back! Medically Home’s Executive Chairman Raphael Rakowski is returning to the CV Transforum stage to deliver the Fall keynote session: No More Buildings (Than Absolutely Necessary). Since Raphael captivated the audience at CV Transforum Fall’19, home healthcare has been propelled into the spotlight due to the COVID pandemic. As a top thought leader in this space, Raphael will provide a historical review of where and how healthcare has been delivered in the U.S. and share insight into opportunities for transitioning patients from traditional brick-and-mortar facilities to home-based care. Additionally, evolving considerations for the structure of healthcare teams and the delivery of care in non-traditional settings will be discussed. 

4. Learn Strategies to Perform and Transform

The pre-conference session, Key Metrics to Optimizing Your Program, will focus on the nuts and bolts of cardiovascular program operations and provide takeaways for optimizing key areas within your organization. This deep dive into the details will explore lessons learned and highlight strategies that have a significant improvement in efficiency and optimization efforts. Experts will explore valuable insights and necessary transformations to improve operational outcomes in key areas including, cath lab optimization, revenue cycle review and team-based care utilization. If you are a cardiovascular leader, this session is not to be missed.

5. Understand Rapidly Emerging CV Trends

Recent healthcare developments are reshaping our industry and change is coming, quickly, and cardiovascular programs of all shapes and sizes must evolve their clinical, operational and financial strategies in order to thrive in the new environment. MedAxiom has helped our community navigate significant industry shifts – from hospital integration and regulatory changes to the COVID pandemic for more than 20 years. With an explosion of private equity acquisitions and the emergence of ambulatory surgery centers, the cardiovascular industry faces another major transition. MedAxiom is committed to being the premier source of unbiased, accurate information on rapidly emerging trends and the Fall conference features sessions on hot topics you need to understand.  

Bonus: In case you missed it, the ACC recently announced its next slate of officers and trustees, including Cathie Biga, MSN, RN, FACC, a long time MedAxiom member and our Board of Managers chair, who will become ACC vice president next spring at ACC.23 Together With the World Congress of Cardiology in New Orleans, LA. Don’t miss a celebration of Cathie’s ascent into ACC leadership during CV Transforum Fall’22!


Now more than ever, we must (re)unite as a cardiovascular community in order to survive – and thrive – in these challenging times. We hope to see you in Austin in October!
