Okyanos Heart Institute’s Chief Medical Officer Speaks at ACC’s Scientific Session
Date:2/28/2013

FREEPORT, The Bahamas (PRWEB) February 28, 2013

Okyanos Heart Institute, which brings a new standard of care and better quality of life to patients with chronic coronary artery disease using cardiac stem cell therapy, announces that Chief Medical Officer Howard Walpole Jr., M.D., MBA, FACC, FACAI will speak at The American College of Cardiology’s (ACC’s) 13th Annual Scientific Session. Dr. Walpole will join a panel of experts on the topic of “Readmission Reduction: Why Should You Care?” The session features thought leaders who will provide the latest data on successful readmission strategies. They will incorporate case studies and results from Medicare's recent test project, and an emphasis on care coordination with a proven track record in reducing readmissions in three index conditions: heart failure, acute myocardial infarction, and pneumonia. The session will be held from 12:30 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. on Sunday, March 10 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

“Readmissions for the three index conditions account for over $17 billion a year (in 2004) in health care expenses,” said Cathleen Biga, chief executive officer of Cardiovascular Management of Illinois (CMI) and the chair of the session. “Hospitals readmit nearly one in five Medicare patients within one month of discharge. Since October 1, 2012, over 2,200 hospitals are facing penalties (payment adjustments) totaling over $280 million, making this topic one of the most important, if not the most important topic of 2013.”

“I am looking forward to bringing this important discussion to the ACC conference,” said Walpole. “My topic in the discussion will be about reducing heart failure readmissions using a case study method to help participants through this transformative area of healthcare.”
