Regulatory changes are affecting how and where cardiovascular services are delivered.
The cost of care for cardiovascular disease in the United States more than doubled between 2011 and 2016 and is projected to grow at nearly 5% per year, surpassing $1 trillion by 2035. To reduce this unsustainable cost growth, the government has implemented significant regulatory changes, allowing many cases to move to lower-cost ASCs and dramatically impacting traditional inpatient-focused cardiovascular care models.
For many health systems, these regulatory changes threaten their largest source of revenue and the financial sustainability of their organizations. To remain competitive, adapt to changing care models, and ensure financial sustainability, health system and service line leaders need to develop proactive strategies focused on physician alignment through investments in ambulatory infrastructure.
