In the spotlight

In the Spotlight

Cardiovascular care affects hundreds of thousands of patients annually and adds billions of dollars to overall U.S. healthcare costs. The Truven Health 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals study uses a national scorecard of metrics to identify the nation’s highest-performing cardiovascular services lines. If all cardiovascular providers performed at the level of the study’s 50 top performers, approximately 9,100 additional lives and $1.4 billion could be saved. More than 6,100 additional bypass and percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) patients’ care could be complication-free. View the report here.
