The clinical strategy of a cardiovascular organization is essential for embracing future innovations. COVID-19 and the quickly changing healthcare landscape have challenged traditional strategies that are in place. View an panel discussion where experts from four programs share insights on the current and future state of clinical strategy. This session will cover topics such as imaging, arrythmia management and telemedicine. From program consolidation to digital transformation, experts share overall strategies, priorities and tactics for success.
Cardiology is at the cutting edge of artificial intelligence (AI) in medicine. By analyzing large amounts of data quickly and accurately, AI can be applied in ways that improve decision-making, diagnosis and treatment. Experts review AI’s strengths and applications that, when partnered with clinical practice, can result in better care.
COVID-19 has rocked the health care industry, shifting the way care is delivered for years to come. The impact on practices and hospitals was immediate and organizations continue to rapidly adapt to a new environment. Watch the CV Transforum Fall’21 keynote session where Michael Cuffe, MD, will discuss the impact of COVID-19 and explore what leaders can expect as it transitions from pandemic to endemic. Topics discussed will include strategies for continuing innovation in the face of adversity and the evolution of practices into the future. Dr. Cuffe also covers helping physicians, care teams and health care leaders implement policies that promote patient and clinician satisfaction, efficient use of technology and practice sustainability.
The predominant historical alignment vehicle for cardiovascular physicians has been the employment model. According to MedAxiom data, approximately 85% of cardiologists in the U.S. are now integrated with a hospital or health system through employment. While this model can and does work well in certain circumstances, it can also present problems for organizations wanting to push value through innovative joint ventures, contemporary compensation models – including income sharing – and the like. This session explores a different alignment model considering the perspectives of clinical and operational needs, along with legal and valuation requirements.
