A community-integrated partnership aimed at reaching those living with end-stage heart disease.
The need for a consistent and proactive approach to advanced cardiac care is profound. Each year, one person dies every 37 seconds from cardiovascular disease in the U.S.
Despite frequent doctor, ER and hospital visits by patients with end-stage heart disease, many don’t receive hospice or palliative care.
Awareness of and access to hospice and/or palliative care services can help manage or prevent breathing difficulties, fatigue and other worsening symptoms associated with cardiovascular disease.
The National Partnership for Healthcare and Hospice Innovation (NPHI) has developed the Advanced Cardiac Care program, a community-integrated partnership aimed at reaching those living with end-stage heart disease.
The Advanced Cardiac Care Program seeks to define standards of care for end-stage heart failure, while mitigating overuse of inpatient and emergency services and underuse of hospice and palliative/advanced illness services.
We are proud to be one of several dozen organizations that are a part of the Advanced Cardiac Care Program. To learn more, call us today – 616.719.0919 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
