Steven Manoukian, M.D., vice president of HCA's cardiovascular service line, agrees that CardioMEMS is a potential game-changer that could dramatically improve clinical outcomes.He adds that a number of HCA facilities have started implanting the CardioMEMS device in heart failure patients.
"Data measured by a CardioMEMS device traditionally required an invasive procedure performed in the intensive care unit of a hospital," Manoukian says.

For instance, Manoukian highlights the importance of patient education in boosting compliance with medications, follow-up and dietary guidelines.
As part of the National Forum for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention's Stronger Hearts Partnership, he helped establish the Stronger Hearts Helpline, which provides 24-hour information to educate patients on heart failure and referrals to community resources.
In addressing variation, Manoukian says HCA focuses on standardizing processes across the organization, which can improve outcomes by raising the level of care for all patients.
"What we're attempting to do is to ensure that all of our facilities have an overall process on how to best manage heart failure patients within their community," he says.
Manoukian explains that while some facilities offer comprehensive cardiovascular programs complete with board-certified heart failure and transplantation specialists, other hospitals with general cardiologists-or those without a cardiologist on staff at all-may not be as experienced in managing heart failure.
"It's really about educating practitioners who might see a heart failure patient," he says, pointing out that this also includes primary care providers and emergency department physicians.
