As the most prevalent cardiac arrhythmia, atrial fibrillation has given rise to a multitude of interventions with variable effectiveness. While drug-based interventions have certainly seen success, as of late, ablation procedures have received significant interest among organizations looking to grow their cardiac service lines through the addition of new services. However, organizations seeking to develop AF ablation programs are likely to encounter a number of barriers along the way.
Effective data collection a top priority for new AF ablation programs
Jake Hartman, Cardiovascular Roundtable
In last month’s Cardiovascular Insights piece, I highlighted some of the key drivers behind the boom in developing a regionalization strategy for the CV service line. In today’s blog, I’d like to share a story from our research on how one organization is leveraging a waterfall approach to CV strategic planning this is centralized, yet allows for site specific nuance in executing on system-level aims.
Regionalization and Network Strategy Research Preview - Effectively Disseminating the CV Strategic Plan
The new Cardiovascular Roundtable Strategic Planning Template is intended to assist members in developing a CV-specific strategic plan and conducting a comprehensive program audit, with particular emphasis on evaluating how accountable care may alter overall aims. More specifically, this PowerPoint tool guides members through stepwise analyses of CV growth prospects, clinical quality, operations, and finances with an eye toward uncovering potential strategies to pursue.
