The Cardiovascular Roundtable is the Advisory Board’s research membership for heart and vascular programs at the nation’s academic and community hospitals. We provide cardiovascular administrators, physicians, and clinical staff with the forecasting tools and best practice insights needed to answer the industry’s most pressing strategic and operational questions:
- How will health reform affect care delivery and reimbursement for my cardiovascular program?
- How can my program reduce readmissions for heart failure and AMI patients to avoid payment penalties?
- How can we pursue growth opportunities in vascular services, hybrid ORs, and transcatheter valves?
- How can we align more closely with cardiovascular specialists and ensure maximum return on investment?
