According to the American Heart Association, today more than 70 million Americans suffer from one or more types of cardiovascular disease. The annual cost to society is more than $400 billion a year in healthcare expenses and lost productivity. Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is still the nation’s No. 1 killer.
Why are many hospitals across the nation expanding their Cardiac Departments? Due to the large and aging baby- boomer population and increased competition for Cardiac Services among healthcare organizations, designing and managing an efficient Cardiac Department is more crucial than ever. Cardiac Care is one of the largest contributors to a hospital’s profits. Its business significance makes it a vital area of focus. ACI’s Competitive Cardiac Services will provide attendees with the expert knowledge and tools to reduce costs, enhance revenue, and increase the overall market share of their Cardiac Departments.
