The Cleveland Clinic and CHI Models for Cardiovascular Excellence

Available ON-DEMAND

The cardio service line continues to be a profit center for hospitals; according to our March Intelligence Report, 80% of organizations report the cardio as having a positive impact on contribution margin. There are cost and alignment pressures, but the outlook remains positive, and organizations are preparing for population health initiatives by expanding services and geographical reach.

Leaders from Cleveland Clinic and Catholic Health Initiatives reveal how they have successfully positioned themselves for growth through leadership training, partnerships, and better care coordination.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will:

  • Discover new strategies to reduce variance and increase uniformity in cardio care
  • Use physician compensation as a lever to reduce utilization and improve alignment
  • Develop successful physician leadership training programs to drive alignment, ownership, and sustainable quality
  • Learn what organization structures support lower costs, even with a full-time staff


  • The Structure of the Organization
    • Specific Procedures to reduce utilization and variance
    • CHI’s Dyad Structure
  • Physician Alignment and Compensation
    • New models of physician compensation that don't rely on RVU - Building incentives around product line success, quality, external contributions to field
    • Cleveland Clinic’s 5-year roadmap: a hybrid compensation model
