Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, claiming more lives than all forms of cancer combined. Yet there is a widespread misconception that heart disease is a “man’s disease.” This misconception has resulted in a disparity in treatment for heart disease between men and women.
Women with heart disease often experience different symptoms than men, and certain diagnostic tests may be less accurate among women. But few hospitals have expanded cardiovascular service lines to target women for preventative care. Our free whitepaper, “Bridging the Gap: How Hospitals are Expanding Cardiovascular Service Lines to Reach Women,” explores gender-sensitive cardiac care and how it can help hospitals distinguish themselves within their community, enhance physician relations and grow revenue.
From this whitepaper you will learn:
- The current situation in terms of cardiovascular diagnosis, prevention and treatment among women
- The root of gender-based disparities in cardiovascular care
- The key factors involved in gender-sensitive cardiovascular care, using the HeartCaring model
- Examples of how real-life hospitals have leveraged HeartCaring for growth
- And much more
