Quality patient care is at the core of all we do. Value-based care is delivering the best quality patient care with regards to the cost of that care through data-driven analysis and service improvement. To this end the Value Base Care Initiative will create resources which will assist cardiac & pulmonary rehabilitation professionals to:

  • Assign accountability.
  • Target efficiencies.
  • Strategize operational transformation.
  • Restructure the care delivery model.
  • Effective technology solutions in management.
  • Ultimately improve the patient and practitioner experience.

A variety of turnkey strategies resources for “optimization of services” have been developed in response to evolving CMS payment reforms for cardiac rehabilitation services. 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.
