Recognition for demonstrating high levels of Cardiac care
Cardiovascular disease refers to a number of very serious and costly conditions, including Ischemic Heart Disease (IHD). To encourage more effective treatment and management, BTE worked with cardiac care experts to develop measures to assess and reward superior physician performance. These measures address a broad range of issues affecting patient health and wellness.
To earn Recognition, clinicians must meet benchmarks on measures such as:
- Blood pressure and LDL levels
- Complete lipoid profile
- Use of aspirin or other antithrombotic
- Smoking cessation
Those who do will improve overall patient health and well being, while reducing the risk of potentially avoidable complications.
