Innovation in Cardiology: The ACC Innovation Program

Authors:

Abstract

The last half century has seen extraordinary advances in the field of cardiology, including innovations in medications, diagnostic modalities, and therapeutics. Even so, cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of morbidity and mortality globally, with suboptimal quality of care, inconsistent health outcomes, and unsustainable costs. It is clear that cardiovascular medicine must undergo a digital transformation to enhance the delivery of quality care and to improve outcomes. To meet this need, the American College of Cardiology developed an innovation program focused on the digital transformation of cardiovascular care, with the goal of improving heart health for individuals and populations.
