CV Outcomes to Partner with ACC on HF GAP Program

CV Outcomes has enthusiastically agreed to serve as an official partner to the American College of Cardiology (ACC) in its Guidelines Applied in Practice (GAP) Program. The ACC developed its GAP programs in an effort to improve the quality of cardiovascular care by bringing ACC/AHA practice guidelines to the point of patient care. The program consists of a series of projects to develop and test tools and strategies for implementing guidelines. Key features of GAP projects are the building of partnerships, flexibility for local adaptation of tools derived from guidelines, involvement of caregivers across the continuum of care (i.e., not just cardiologists), involvement of patients, use of champions/opinion leaders, and use of data to change behavior and measure effectiveness of the approach.
