The American College of Cardiology (ACC) has launched the Pinnacle Network, as part of the National Cardiovascular Data Registry.
According to the college, the Pinnacle Network addresses the shifting business environment that private cardiovascular practices face with a wealth of practice management and financial management tools. The Pinnacle Network also builds a foundation for registry-based systems to reward practices for high-quality care.
A practice management system, the Pinnacle Network provides financial management tools; workforce strategies; guidance for the adoption of health IT; and risk management education and strategies to lower the cost of liability premiums. The ACC said the Pinnacle Network will provide access to data management systems that translate data into clinical insights.
