Quality patient care is at the core of all we do. Value-based care is the concept of delivering that care with data-driven analysis and service improvement.

Dozens of turnkey strategies resources for “optimization of services” have been developed in response to evolving CMS payment reforms for cardiac rehabilitation services. As these alternate payment models are being legislatively debated and enacted, the turnkey resources, strategies, and tools are relevant to cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation programs alike. The value-based care initiatives from AACVPR will enable programs to:

  • Be accountable
  • Be efficient
  • Be strategic
  • Utilize technology effectively
  • Improve the patient and practitioner experience

Use and share the resources on this page to help foster excellent patient care and advance the profession of cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation.
