Quality care navigation
Expert support from the leader in patient-focused innovations for structural heart disease is here.
Driven by a passion to help patients, the CardioCare program combines our clinical consulting expertise with an innovative cloud based platform to facilitate in the identification, referral, and care pathway management of patients with structural heart disease.
With the CardioCare program, our commitment is to help hospitals improve quality by reducing variability in echocardiography and ensure effective communication between care settings to ensure patients access to care.
