How top cardiovascular centers use data to improve performance
Communicate goals: “When you communicate what the vision is and you listen to what people have to say, they’re far more likely to change with you,” says Dr. Mohamed Hamdan of the University of Wisconsin.
Review data with cardiology teams: “It adds a lot of efficiency to the game,” says Dr. Adam Sabbath of HonorHealth John C. Lincoln Medical Center.
Solve problems together: “This is a very people-dependent industry, so it really takes everybody at every level,” says Dr. Michael Gault of Saddleback Memorial Medical Center.
Provide specialty care: “If you can do the complex cases, then you can do the routine cases very well as well,” says Dr. Michael Petracek of Vanderbilt University.
Change protocols when needed: “We really look for things that we’re struggling with and think about implementing new processes,” says Dr. Marvin Konstam of Tufts Medical Center.
