As we wrap up this issue and head into the holiday season, we want to extend a sincere thank you to all our readers and contributors for another stellar year.

Together we have learned about the changing landscape of health care delivery and the hospital-at-home movement; explored the global burden of cardiovascular disease and strategies to tackle noncommunicable diseases; fostered crucial conversations on critical topics like the workforce crisis, clinician well-being, health equity and maternal health; provided timely updates and key takeaways from new clinical guidelines and late-breaking science; recognized the achievements of ACC members around the world; and so much more.

We look forward to building on these efforts in 2024 and serving as your trusted source for news, updates and perspectives on key trends and issues that impact our shared commitment to creating a world where science, knowledge and innovation optimize patient care and outcomes.

As we continue to look at the transformation of health care, this issue of Cardiology looks at the revolutionary capacity of artificial intelligence to enhance diagnostics and treatment, increase operational efficiency and, most importantly, improve patient outcomes.

"Done thoughtfully, we will serve our patients better, educate ourselves optimally and improve the quality of work in the practice of medicine," says ACC's Chief Innovation Officer Ami B. Bhatt, MD, FACC.

Also in this issue, read about military cardiology and its vital role in maintaining a healthy, mission-ready force, and the late-breaking science from TCT 2023.

In addition, we hear from Andrew J. Sauer, MD, about weight loss pharmacotherapy and how it is shifting the treatment of the obesity phenotype of heart failure, and from Luis Enrique Farfan, MSN, AGACNP-BC, CCRN, CCA, about the role of APPs in enhancing patient outcomes through collaborative care in critical care cardiology.

Plus, check out highlights from the final 2024 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule and Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System rules.

Last, but certainly not least, be sure to learn more about ACC programs that are investing in the future of cardiology, thanks to the generosity of ACC members around the world.
