Chest Pain Center Accreditation Webinar

CPC Webinar

Small Monitor Chest Pain Center Accreditation: Strategic Decisions That Impact Patient Care and Increase Operational Margins
View time: 1 hour

What's Covered: This Heart Month webinar will cover the value of accreditation and using ACTION Registry® data to support accreditation and cardiac programs.

  • Discover the "WHY" of ACC Accreditation Services
  • Understand the burden of cardiovascular disease (CVD)
  • Analyze the impact of accreditation on current payment incentives

Small Monitor CPC v6: Strategic Direction for Value-Based Care
View time: 1 hour

What's Covered: Are you ready to take your cardiac program to the next level? Will your current processes support the ever-changing payment models? It's common knowledge that heart disease is the leading cause of death across the globe. Direct and indirect costs for patients living with cardiovascular disease are estimated at over $316 billion. Latest predictions estimate this figure will climb above $818 billion by 2030. The time is now to minimize waste and align clinical care with evidence-based guidelines. Studies demonstrate it takes years to implement the most recent guidelines into clinical practice. With reimbursements tied to quality outcomes, there is a greater financial incentive to ensure patient care is state-of-the-art. Register for our webinar and learn how Chest Pain Center Accreditation can meet the demands of cardiovascular patient care while positively impacting your operating margin.
