Overcoming Clinical Inertia
Clinical inertia is defined as the failure of a healthcare provider to initiate or intensify treatment as indicated. Despite the rapid adoption of digital healthcare, it currently takes up to 20 years from the release of evidence-based practice guidelines until they're widely adopted. Combating clinical inertia requires new approaches that bridge the gaps that exist between various health system stakeholders, including patients, providers, and healthcare IT platforms. This session describes a novel partnership between the American College of Cardiology and Veradigm to address clinical inertia for patients with cardiovascular disease. The partnership takes advantage of a new research network providing access to the point of care of primary care providers on a nationwide scale, and enables deployment of actionable tools to help improve the quality, efficiency, and value of healthcare delivery to enhance initiatives like the ACC's TRANSFORM program. Through this partnership, Veradigm and the American College of Cardiology are committing to innovative ways to further the field of cardiology and fulfilling our mission to transform cardiovascular care and improve heart health by delivering a wider breadth of clinical tools and research opportunities to registry participants.

Stephanie Reisinger
Vice President, General Manager, Veradigm Life Sciences
