In fact, cardiac services often total the highest case volume at a hospital, which in turn can make them the biggest contributor to the bottom line...in some cases, up to 40%. This can convert to even more in profit with astute business management.
In an age of Value-Based Purchasing, and the potential in understanding health care reform, those programs that have elevated their focus to quality will often times reap the full benefit of their hard work and focus as it relates to providing the "highest level quality of care." The continuing shift toward minimally invasive procedures, such as PCI and TAVR, is also affecting the way that cardiovascular programs are run. Valve and electrophysiology programs are continuing to gain more attention as ways to grow cardiac or cardiovascular service lines.
So it should be of no surprise that heart-related services are among the most strategic for acute care hospitals in this country (and around the globe). This means that all hospitals need to be proactive with ensuring solid quality of care, sound operations, and viable financials within their cardiac specialty. Increasing demand, rising technology and construction costs, the need to address through-put, tightening reimbursement, healthcare reform, physician and administrative talent shortages, and evolving clinical / operational standards are just some of the factors that can present serious challenges to this evolving service line.
