OVERVIEW:
“The key to successfully managing all of what lies before us is not in the search for “answers” … rather, we must constantly strive to understand the questions.”
Wayne M. Sotile, PhD, Keynote speaker, ACCA, March 1998

Cardiovascular disease continues to be the largest healthcare issue facing the country today. This constantly changing field, compounded by a rapidly aging population and an aggressive technology explosion, promises to be a continuous challenge into the next millennium.

Our forward thrust in this most challenging of times is to push further, reach higher, run faster, and move toward new levels of excellence, while dealing with cost-effective delivery models, capital acquisitions, mergers, etc. Only our creativity and our understanding of the “questions” limit the overall potential for the future of cardiovascular medicine.

This conference is specifically geared toward administrators, managers, cath lab directors, and other leaders in the field of cardiovascular medicine who accept this challenge and are seeking an understanding of the questions in today’s field of medicine. The program faculty will provide an insight into many of the issues facing cardiovascular program administrators and managers, ranging from cardiac prevention and wellness, marketing of cardiovascular services, to refining leadership skills, among many others.

Whether you are a seasoned veteran or a new manager, this conference will provide you an opportunity to learn and understand, while networking with your peers, and take back the most comprehensive information ever presented.

1:30 – 2:30pm
SUCCESSFULLY RESOLVING FEDERAL/STATE REGULATORY CONCERNS
Sponsored by Nycomed Amersham
Complex and often changing governmental regulations require CV Administrative Managers to expend an ever-increasing allocation of time and resources. These mandates on the delivery of healthcare often result in compliance problems or questions which can not always be readily addressed by the administrative managers alone. This presentation will provide an overview of how Washington government affairs professionals successfully resolve varying and complex regulatory issues for their memberships. Strategies for resolving federal regulatory issues addressed in the session will include:

  • Problem analysis
  • Proper documentation of the problem
  • Utilization of professional society/organizational staff
  • Proper forms of communication
  • Proper follow-up to achieve successful outcomes

Alan Morgan, MPS, VHA Inc. Manager of Government Affairs, Washington, DC

2:40 – 3:40pm
THE REIMBURSEMENT PROCESS:
AN UPDATE ON REIMBURSEMENT PERTAINING TO CARDIOVASCULAR PROGRAMS
Clinical revenue is perhaps the most critical component of any cardiovascular program, as it is typically the lifeblood of the program. Successful cardiovascular program administrators must achieve a fundamental understanding of revenue streams related to clinical activities in order to make appropriate decisions regarding future projections, budget, service contracts, etc. Additionally, this level of understanding is imperative for protecting future revenue streams. Through this session, the participant will receive a thorough review of general information related to reimbursement of cardiovascular services, as well as learning new models and mechanisms for reimbursement in the future. Additionally, the participant will learn the latest information regarding policies on DRG assignment that will ultimately have an impact on cardiovascular program operating budgets.

Kaye Anderson, Reimbursement Analyst, Guidant Corporation, St. Paul, Minnesota

3:40 – 4:10pm Break/Exhibits

4:10 – 5:00pm
ECONOMIC ISSUES FACING CARDIOVASCULAR SPECIALISTS Healthcare reform continues to wreak havoc for cv specialists. Over the course of the next four years, Medicare reimbursement will be reduced an additional 13%. Other payors will certainly follow suit, as they always have in the past. The forces of managed care also continue to squeeze cv specialists with increased restrictions related to authorization/certification of clinical services. Furthermore, insurance companies are setting definite limits on what they will pay for new technology. These reimbursement issues, when combined with drastic leaps in the availability of technology for treating cv diseases, create a dire need for solid business strategies aimed at maximizing potential revenues and reducing operating costs. Clearly, there are no easy answers to these issues. Dealing with complex situations brought on by patients with arrhythmia problems forces physicians and hospital administrators to collectively face economic and ethical dilemmas. The key to surviving lies in working collectively and collaboratively to find solutions that benefit all parties involved -physicians, hospitals, and patients.

2:40 – 3:40pm
THE GRITTY REALITY OF HEART MARKET MANAGEMENT The challenges to cardiovascular program development continue to present themselves. Regina Herzlinger writes about Focused Factories. The Advisory Board researches “The Great Product Enterprise”. Oxford Health encourages direct patient referrals to cardiologists and venture capitalists fund pure play companies. Call it what you like (e.g., service line development, Center of Excellence branding or niche competition), it comes down to the same thing – focusing on discreet areas of the heart business as proposed to a monolithic system, hospital, multigroup practice or health plan approach. This presentation will distill the market forces driving providers of healthcare back to a product line approach. It will also make the case for a product line orientation as critical to the success of integration, cost reduction, outcomes improvement and physician integration.

Donald W. Seymore, MBA, CHC, Vice President, APACHE/National Health Advisors, McLean, Virginia

3:40 – 4:10pm Break/Exhibits

4:10 – 5:00pm
MONITORING QUALITY & OUTCOMES A challenge facing heart centers is the design of an infrastructure that:

INTEGRATIVE APPROACHES TO THE TREATMENT AND PREVENTION OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
This presentation will discuss:

  • Contrast the thought processes that typlify the biomedical model and the integrative (or holistic) model with regard to patients, diseases, and community health
  • Distinguish the relationships of spirit, mind and boy on health, especially cardiovascular health. What value is there to finding snyergy among the three? How strong is the evidence?
  • Compare and contrast “alternative”, “complimentary”, and “lifestyle” practices now in vogue with patients who want to enhance their cardiovascular health
  • List the potential risks and benefits of integrating these approaches with those of conventional medicine and talk about how well we are doing it and what the forces that facilitate and impede integration and who should do it
  • Delineate the need for, and limitations of, typical “Western” clinical science with its linear, cause-effect, and reductionistic concepts in evaluating nonconventional practices. Talk about what kind of data we can anticipate over the next several years.
