Preparing Your Practice for Quality-Based Payment: An ACC Roadmap to Success
Tuesday, March 16, 12:15 PM - 1:45 PM
Last year, the ACC launched the PINNACLE Program, formerly I3 (Improving Continuous Cardiac Care). PINNACLE is designed to help cardiology practices thrive in this new data-driven environment. As a national office-based quality improvement program grounded in ACC/AHA guidelines and performance measures, the ultimate goal of the PINNACLE Program is to translate ambulatory data into individualized clinical insight. However, participation in the program also provides cardiovascular professionals with the data resources and experience to compete effectively in a rapidly changing marketplace.

In this session, three speakers will address the PINNACLE Program and Registry, first giving an overview of the program and then detailing how it will help demonstrate quality. For cardiovascular practices looking to adopt EHRs, the ACC offers several ways to streamline participation in the PINNACLE Program.

The ACC has a number of registries that have provided invaluable insight into practice patterns. PINNACLE promises to follow their lead.
