About the Infographic

CV services have held a privileged position as the growth engine of many hospitals and health systems. However, as volumes become harder to capture in traditional bread-and-butter services (e.g., CABG, PCI), programs are seeking new growth opportunities.

Coupled with the growing need to provide care for chronic, comorbid patients, and increasing accountability across the full care continuum, these forces are encouraging investments in niche, condition-specific programs. These “disease centers” offer new growth opportunities while simultaneously elevating quality across the continuum.

See how three programs have developed heart failure, atrial fibrillation, and valve centers, and learn seven steps to optimize your disease center.
