In a recent CardioSurve survey we asked, "What one issue do you believe that the ACC could provide assistance to you in managing?" Resoundingly, cardiologists indicated a desire for ACC support in reimbursement, certification/MOC, and keeping up to date from a clinical standpoint. Not coincidentally, each of these issues over the past few years has experienced vast degrees of change in implementation, regulation and usage.

In the last edition of the CardioSurve Newsletter, we learned that the ACC is the cardiovascular professional home, meeting needs, protecting interests and providing support to ensure success. This issue of the CardioSurve Newsletter focuses on those key areas of needed assistance and seeks to explore each of these topics in terms of what support is most desired and ACC’s role in creating and maintaining a foundation of positive change for the betterment of all cardiovascular professionals.
