  • Provides a succinct review of each of the business models of cardiology in the community
  • Discusses areas of cardiology that provide a challenge to non-hospital management
  • Provides a reference for procedures, imaging, and care of cardiac co-morbidities​  
Cardiac problems are often chronic in nature and affect our ever aging population. This requires long-term care for our underserved communities. In the “Heartland of America” patients are often unable or unwilling to leave their community setting to reach the Cardiologist. Placement of Cardiologists in the community is critical for appropriate diagnosis and treatment in a timely manner.  The practical didactic format is designed to deliver information at the time of need to cardiology practitioners. With the use of diagrams, figures, and schematics this reference will be essential for community cardiology procedures, policy, and patient care.​
