Advanced Cardiac Care Program

A community-integrated partnership aimed at reaching those living with end-stage heart disease.

The need for a consistent and proactive approach to advanced cardiac care is profound. Each year, one person dies every 37 seconds from cardiovascular disease in the U.S.

Despite frequent doctor, ER, and hospital visits by patients with end-stage heart disease, many don’t receive hospice or palliative care.

Awareness of and access to hospice and/or palliative care services can help manage or prevent breathing difficulties, fatigue, and other worsening symptoms associated with cardiovascular disease.

The  National Partnership for Healthcare and Hospice Innovation (NPHI) has developed the Advanced Cardiac Care program, a community-integrated partnership aimed at reaching those living with end-stage heart disease.

The Advanced Cardiac Care Program will seek to define standards of care for end-stage heart failure, while mitigating overuse of inpatient and emergency services and underuse of hospice and palliative/advanced illness services.

We are proud to be one of several dozen organizations that will be part of the Advanced Cardiac Care Program, which will roll out to physicians, hospitals, and the public starting in early 2021. To learn more, call us today – 1-800-975-5501 or email info@hopva.org
