CPCv5 is an operational model that merges the latest scientific evidence with process improvement initiatives for the care of the cardiac patient. CPCv5 combines evidence-based science, quality initiatives, ACC/AHA guidelines and clinical best practices to produce the most effective care delivery model for LOW-RISK, NSTEMI/UA, STEMI and Resuscitation. The focus of CPCv5 is to optimize resource utilization and to improve patient outcomes with specific attention to the LOW-RISK patients that comprise 80% of the chest pain population seen in the Emergency Department. CPCv5 was engineered by a team of more than 50 nationally recognized healthcare leaders with specialties in emergency and observation medicine, interventional cardiology, hospitalist, executive administration, social work, nursing, information technology, and governmental policies such as Value-Based Purchasing (VBP) which help facilities optimize patient outcomes and achieve financial performance.

A-Fibv2 is an operational model that merges evidence-based science and process improvement across the continuum of care. A-Fibv2 is the result of diligent work by nationally recognized physicians with expertise in emergency medicine, observation medicine, interventional cardiology, electrophysiology, internal medicine, and cardiothoracic surgery. A-Fibv2 incorporates AHA/ACC/HRS Atrial Fibrillation Guidelines and other evidence-based science, quality initiatives, and clinical best practices. A-Fibv2 accreditation helps facilities optimize patient outcomes and achieve financial performance.

HF Accreditation Conformance Database (ACD) is the foundation of SCPC’s optional Heart Failure Analytics. Designed for clinicians by clinicians, HF Analytics delivers the information needed to track patient flow. Analytics provides a vast range of clinical information on a dashboard display including; length of stay and readmissions by population, Emergency Department throughput, care measures by provider type, consult information, and much more. Analytics provides a comprehensive view of your heart failure population plus offers the ability to drill down to view individual patient encounters within an area of interest. The details reveal the random variations in care delivery to assist in systematic process improvement.

SCPC will be debuting all of these cutting-edge services at their 17th Congress, April 30, 2014, in San Diego, California. For more information, visit
