Equipping the CV Team to Transform Care, Address Emerging Trends

The ACC's Cardiovascular (CV) Summit brought together all members of the cardiovascular team last month for three days of educational sessions, workshops and abstract presentations highlighting best practices for creating a more efficient, effective and equitable health care system.

As health care systems continue to evolve, CV teams must be equipped to address emerging trends and changes in operations, economics and the workforce. This year's Summit focused on how to distinguish between innovative strategies and emerging trends in CV care, assess operational efficiencies to enhance the effectiveness of the CV service line, and adopt customizable approaches that support economic sustainability.

Plenary sessions shed light on topics like what CV Services could look like in 2030, the potential for artificial intelligence (AI) in CV care, and evolving trends in CV employment. ACC Vice President Cathleen Biga, MSN, FACC, and Immediate Past President Edward T.A. Fry, MD, MACC, were also on hand with an update on joint society progress towards creating a new, independent Board of CV Medicine.

"The Cardiovascular Summit is the ACC's primary meeting focused solely on the nonclinical business skills of cardiology," said CV Summit Course Director Howard (Bo) Walpole, MD, MBA, FACC. "This is our forum for discussing and teaching everything necessary for running an efficient private or academic practice while improving leadership and organizational skills."

On-demand sessions from the 2024 Summit, as well as previous Summits, are available in the ACC Anywhere video library. Additionally, don't miss the Business of Cardiology Intensive at ACC.24. Starting in 2025, the ACC is excited to announce the integration of the CV Summit with MedAxiom's CV Transforum. Look for more details from MedAxiom coming soon!
