Gary Clifton, Vice President - Terumo Business Edge
Dr. Amin is a leading researcher, publisher and speaker on cath lab economics. He has developed what he terms a “patient centered approach” to PCI, which he has documented in his recent publication in the Journal of American Heart Association.
Dr. Amin will speak not only to the specific clinical and patient safety aspects of his work, but also the tremendous cost savings that can be achieved as a result of same-day discharge (SDD). Physicians, administrators, cath lab staff will find this material relevant and compelling considering the importance of reducing costs, increasing patient satisfaction and delivering quality clinical outcomes. In an era where hospitals are struggling to find cost savings, Dr. Amin’s work takes a deep dive into truly understanding what the costs savings can be for any hospital.
Upon completing this webinar, participants will:
- Understand the purpose and intent of a patient centered approach to PCI
- Understand how a SDD approach to PCI can save the hospital significant money
- Understand the clinical benefits of a patient centered approach
