MedAxiom White Papers feature expert research, knowledge and insights on pressing issues in cardiology, arming CV organizations with solutions for success.
As more organizations realize the value of advanced practice providers (APPs), many continue to be challenged with effective utilization of this care team member. This white paper developed by the MedAxiom Consulting Team based on their first-hand experience working with cardiovascular programs across the country underscores the value of the team-based care model when implemented appropriately. “We have seen the impact on programs where APPs are operating to their fullest capabilities and have outlined recommended implementation steps and a checklist of do’s and don’ts to take into consideration to advance APP utilization.” says Ginger Biesbrock, PA-C, MPH, MPAS, FACC, MedAxiom’s EVP of Care Transformation.
Healthcare leaders can no longer look at access the way they have in the past, especially in a post-COVID-19 environment. Solving the patient access problem for the long term requires more than operational change. Leadership and governance structures that support a culture of access are necessary for success.
Technology plays a major role as cardiovascular programs strive to achieve the Quadruple Aim for better outcomes, lower costs, and improved patient and clinician experience. In part one of a three part white paper series the Heart and Vascular Institute of Wisconsin (HVIW) share their experience with ScImage’s PICOM365 cardiology suite to create an integrated imaging and data platform for their cardiovascular enterprise. Hear how the uniquely designed workflows, vendor-agnostic adaptability, and cost-effective native cloud design allow them to manage advancing imaging modalities, growth and geographic expansion. “To provide the most advanced care possible we have to address every opportunity to improve efficiency in clinical workflows for our providers,” says Larry Sobal, CEO of HVIW.
Careful thought and strategic planning are needed to manage the accelerated shift to ambulatory interventional labs and avoid additional strain on the industry’s efforts to assure intentional, well managed care transitions. In an effort to meet the needs of the growing ambulatory surgical center/office-based lab (ASC/OBL) market, ScImage now offers a game-changing solution: a fully integrated hemodynamic system within the PICOM365 CVIS/CPACS through a partnership with Fysicon (a Canon company). In part two of a three part white paper series three programs share outcomes of using ScImage’s PICOM365 cardiology suite integrated with Fysicon’s QMAPP in their ASC/OBL settings.
As cardiovascular leaders we strive for a patient-centric model of care that improves access and health. To achieve that we need solutions to bridge the gaps between the data and images used to plan and deliver care across all settings in a diverse continuum of care. This white paper overviews how ScImage’s PICOM365 offers a secure, turnkey, end-to-end cloud-based cardiovascular data and image integration solution where disparate technologies are no longer a barrier to clinical workflows.
