MedAxiom Reports highlight the latest CV industry data, trends and analysis to help hospitals and practices thrive.
MedAxiom surveyed its membership community to gain insights on the current state of invasive cardiology services across the country. The results show 96% of respondents are facing challenges staffing their cardiac cath labs and 85% said these challenges are more difficult than before the pandemic. View the full results in this report that reveals current staffing constrictions are still a major concern for many although the U.S. is starting to move past the pandemic.
MedAxiom conducted a survey to gauge the impact of a critical iodinated contrast supply shortage on cardiovascular organizations with imaging and procedure labs. As supply chain challenges are exposed, this survey provides a better understanding of what the cardiovascular community is doing to pivot during this short-term problem. Results show that 97% of programs surveyed are aware of a potential shortage of iodinated contrast. Nearly 60% of respondents say supply chain manages their iodinated contrast inventory and/or ordering and more than 80% of programs have a mechanism or committee structure that could rapidly respond if the contrast shortage becomes prolonged.
While call pay data is frequently sought for benchmarking and decision-making purposes, call and call pay are sensitive topics and difficult to quantify and normalize. That is proven by the results included in this report from a recent Call Pay Survey, conducted by MedAxiom.

Healthcare organizations face tremendous pressure to decrease expenses while improving quality of care. Although cardiovascular procedure labs have many resources for measuring quality of care, the industry is lacking best practice guidelines and standardization of metrics in terms of operational performance management. In Spring of 2021 MedAxiom interviewed 29 programs, representing more than 200 cardiovascular procedure labs across the U.S., to better understand where innovation opportunities exist in the market to support performance management. Access the report to see the full assessment and explore how to improve data analytics for your cardiovascular procedure labs.
MedAxiom’s ninth annual Cardiovascular Provider Compensation and Production Survey Report – which unveils trends across cardiology, surgery, advanced practice providers and non-clinical compensation – reveals the true impact of the coronavirus pandemic on cardiovascular programs in 2020. In addition to highlighting comparisons between private and integrated models, the report features new panel size metrics for workforce planning. Use this essential strategic planning tool – designed by cardiology, for cardiology – to optimize your organization and transform cardiovascular care in 2022 and beyond.
Coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) is one of the most disruptive recent advances in the cardiovascular industry. In order to drive the transformation of cardiovascular care delivery, MedAxiom surveyed its membership to better understand where cardiovascular programs are in their journey of adopting CCTA as well as barriers to adoption. More than 90% of respondents describe CCTA as a valuable cardiovascular imaging modality today and 100% note CCTA as a valuable imaging modality for the future. Regarding CCTA-derived fractional flow reserve (FFRCT), 77% of respondents said FFRCT will have a clinical impact on patient management.
Although the benefits of cardiac rehab (CR) are well documented, only a fraction of eligible patients in the U.S. enroll in a program after a major cardiovascular event or diagnosis. This survey report reveals insights related to CR program offerings, completion rates, staffing, leadership, barriers and more.
National shifts in the healthcare industry, including a move toward value-based reimbursement and provider risk, along with new non-traditional provider competitors, has created an urgent need for transforming the care delivery model. On top of this COVID-19 has shifted organizational priorities and strategies, putting staffing and workforce development in the forefront. MedAxiom surveyed its membership in March 2021 to better understand hiring insights and workforce trends to help CV programs navigate unprecedented times. These survey results helped to shape a new offering – MedAxiom Talent Solutions. Cardiovascular Expertise. Delivered. – that connects healthcare organizations with seasoned cardiovascular experts backed by the entire MedAxiom team.
MedAxiom’s eighth annual Cardiovascular Provider Compensation and Production Survey contains comprehensive data and analysis for cardiovascular organizations facing a new normal amid effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
