HeartPAC, ACC's Political Action Committee increases the political power and reach of the College by opening doors for ACC members and staff to educate key members of Congress on cardiovascular issues.
HeartPAC’s mission is to support federal candidates who can help us advance legislation and policies that:
- Improve health care for patients with cardiovascular disease
- Facilitate the delivery of high quality, cost-effective cardiovascular services
- Fund cardiovascular research and prevention
HeartPAC efforts are aimed at eliminating or reducing hurdles that threaten cardiovascular providers and patients. HeartPAC amplifies cardiology’s message to Congress on hot button issues, including graduate medical education and research; health information technology; access to imaging; quality, appropriate use criteria and the use of clinical data; and Medicare reimbursement policy.
