MEMBER VALUE AND ENGAGEMENT
POPULATION HEALTH MANAGEMENT
Perhaps the most important role that the chapter has is to ensure the best medical care for Floridians. This means providing timely access to new technologies important for the nuanced care of our individual patients and making sure that this work is of the highest quality and appropriately valued. Through our Advocacy Committee and Payer Relations and Healthcare Economics Committee, we are working with lawmakers and payers to ensure the best medical care for our patients.
Education continues to evolve at the chapter level. Our annual meeting is the flagship under which our leadership grows, our members gather and we connect.
TRANSFORMATION OF CARE
Our members have used the Florida Chapter as a crucible for their far-reaching ideas about how to deliver quality, patient-centered care in an ever-changing environment through a quality project called the Florida Quality Improvement in Cardiology (FL-QUIC). The quality committee set this initiative up and was awarded $5000 from the Miami Heart Research Foundation to highlight what our members are doing to improve quality cardiovascular care in Florida. Nine projects were showcased at the FCACC Flagship Annual Meeting and top projects received awards to continue their work. These projects were sent out to members via print and online as encouragement for replicating the projects.
