Addressing cardiovascular health from an enterprise perspective

As cardiovascular disease (CVD) continues to rise worldwide, healthcare leaders need a strategic approach across their care teams to support better patient outcomes. Get the UpToDate Point of Care Report.  

The prevalence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) increased from 271 million in 1990 to 523 million in 2019. Annual CVD deaths are projected to rise to 23.3 million by 2030, which would be responsible for 31.7% of deaths worldwide, according to the World Health Organization.

Clinicians are eager for more information on how to make their CVD patient care and education more effective and efficient, as evidenced by a 7% year-over-year jump in usage of UpToDate® for cardiovascular clinical decision support (CDS). Healthcare leaders and administrators have an opportunity to lead the charge toward improved patient health by getting clinicians the tools they need.

To provide insight into this topic, Wolters Kluwer is pleased to introduce the UpToDate Point of Care Report with the first topic focusing on the enterprise approach to cardiovascular health. This report offers insights into the challenges of combating CVD and highlights the need for a proactive and unified approach to cardiovascular care that prioritizes empathic patient and member engagement and education.

This report covers a range of topics to support a systemic approach to addressing cardiovascular health, including:

  • The impact of social determinants of health (SDOH) on cardiovascular care and the importance of promoting care equity.
  • Strategies to support prevention for type 2 diabetes and coordinated drug-managed diabetes to reduce the risk of CVD.
  • Benefits of empathic education for patients and how to create engaging and diverse educational resources.
