Cardinal Health Hosts Physician Panel on Balance of Clinical Excellence and Cost Effectiveness in Interventional Cardiology at TCT

October 8, 2014 — At the recent Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) meeting, representatives from Cardinal Health and physicians from leading healthcare institutions led discussions to help interventionalists explore the balance between innovative approaches to lowering healthcare costs and maintaining high-quality patient care.

On Tuesday, Sept. 16, Cardinal Health Medical Segment CEO Don Casey discussed healthcare industry business model innovation before joining co-chair Martin B. Leon, M.D., from New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center and panelists Michael Jaff, DO, from Massachusetts General Hospital; David Cohen, M.D., from Saint Luke’s Mid America Heart Institute; and Mark Burket, M.D., University of Toledo Medical Center for a panel entitled, “The Balance of Clinical Excellence and Cost-Effectiveness in Interventional Cardiology: Today and Tomorrow.”

“The healthcare system today, more than ever, needs new, innovative solutions that will allow providers to deliver great patient care while being fiscally prudent,” said Casey. “We believe there is an opportunity to build new solutions that combine product, services and analytics to bring more value to our customers.”

On the TCT show floor, Cardinal Health presented its interventional solution sets that help optimize interventional healthcare, including:

  • Operational efficiency — ensuring the right product in the right place at the right time from point of order to point of care;
  • Product quality — offering high-quality, cost-effective products from basic essentials to complex procedures to promote excellent patient care; and
  • Smart analytics — transforming data into actionable clinical, operational and financial insights.
