Procedural confidence and efficiency in structural heart disease treatment

 

Leverage unrivaled imaging guidance and seamless care team collaboration to enhance patient outcomes while reducing procedure time.

    Providing high quality patient care and optimizing staff workloads remains a priority

     

    In the treatment of structural heart disease (SHD), you are faced with increasing constraints of reimbursement models, which challenge profitability. This creates a need to optimize patient throughput and resources—but at the same time, maintaining high-quality patient care and manageable staff workloads remains a priority.

    Challenges you face in treatment

    Collaboration

    Inefficient workflows and complex imaging protocols complicate the indispensable multidisciplinary collaboration.1

    Standardization

    Procedures depend on the operator’s techniques. This complicates defining a reproducible measurement and interpretation.2

    Administration

    Excessive workloads, inefficient work processes and adminstrative burden are some of the main drivers of burnout in the health care workforce.3
