Demonstrating The Value Of Cardiovascular Ultrasound

As an increasing emphasis continues to be placed on the value of medical tests and procedures, all healthcare professionals will continue to need guidance to help them decide which tests may be most appropriate and economical for their patients. Funding in this area supports ASE Foundation initiatives designed to address challenges and opportunities specific to the role of cardiovascular ultrasound in the changing healthcare landscape.

On September 12, 2014, the ASE Foundation hosted Summit 2014: Value-Based Healthcare in Washington, D.C. For more information about this unique and first-of-its-kind event featuring a variety of panelists in a talk-show style format, who interacted with the audience and discussed topics including cardiac imaging in new models such as ACO’s, echo’s value in specific clinical scenarios, and a candid look into how both government and private payers see cardiac imaging in these changing times, please read the special report.
