In July 2017 the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is implementing two pilot reimbursement models creating incentives for hospitals to deliver better cardiac interventions at a lower cost. With respect to cardiac rehabilitation (CR) services, the new structure includes bundled payment models for AMI and CABG and an additional CR incentive reimbursement. As a national leader in CR services, AACVPR has assembled a group of experts in the field to present a workshop to help you understand these models and guide you through changes that will enhance your program's ability to improve services to patients.

After completing this workshop, you will be able to:
- Assess their program’s strengths and weaknesses
- Build new initiatives to enhance their program’s sustainability
- Design effective methods for improving patient adherence and compliance
- Understand challenges of the forthcoming regulatory environment
