Heart center boosts outcomes with new profiling tool

Clin Resour Manag. 2001 Jun;2(6):91-6, 81.

Abstract

A South Carolina cardiac rehab center co-developed a suite of reports that helped its staff and referring cardiologists to obtain real-time information on the health status of one or a group of patients. The strategy replaces the previous approach of relying on retrospective analysis.
