Special report on Summit 2014 in this month’s JASE

Last fall the ASE Foundation (ASEF) gathered leaders from across the healthcare spectrum in the nation’s capital to offer a variety of unique perspectives on the transition to value-based healthcare, with a focus on the role of cardiovascular ultrasound in the changing environment. The summary report from this first-of-its-kind event has now been published in the July issue of JASE, and will serve as an excellent resource for our members to demonstrate the value of echocardiography to colleagues, administrators, and others in the healthcare community.

In addition, ASEF has added speaker slides and video summaries of two panels to the Summit 2014 website, and will continue to add additional videos and other resources as often as possible.  One of the highlights of the program featured a panel session with three patients whose care was directly impacted by the use of echocardiography.
