Did You Know? 
September is National Cholesterol Education Month
 
This month is a great reminder that cholesterol, in addition to resting blood pressure and resting heart rate are the key numbers to know when identifying risk for heart disease. Cholesterol, blood pressure and heart rate measurements taken for your hospital's Pocket EKG screening attendees can be listed on the front of the Pocket EKG Card that is mailed directly to them, promoting risk awareness and management and ensuring instant access to vital heart health information. Through this service, Cardiomark strives to assist organizations in their efforts to reach-out to and educate their communities regarding cholesterol and other important risk factors.

Cardiomark's Patient Satisfaction Surveys Promote Payor Negotiations and Organizational Development

Survey Report Covers 

Hospital and physician practitioners agree that Cardiomark's HEDIS/NCQA compliant patient satisfaction surveys are a valuable practice/organizational development tool and bargaining chip for payor contracting. Cardiomark administers three different point of service surveys depending on the needs of the organization. Hospitals enrolled in the Pocket Angiogram Program can choose to utilize a cardiac surgery survey and a cath lab survey for no additional charge. Along with the Pocket Angiogram Card, Cardiomark mails the appropriate survey to patients with a prepaid envelope addressed to Cardiomark. The data is analyzed and reported to the hospital on a quarterly basis. Click here to view the Pocket Angiogram surgery and cath lab surveys.  

 
The third complimentary survey option is available to physician practitioners enrolled in the Pocket EKG Program. This survey provides information on how to improve service to increase the quality of patient care but can also be used to directly impact your bottom line. William Mantia, MBA, CEO, of Pikes Peak cardiology says that "The data from this survey have been a definite advantage in our contract negotiations." Click
