Southeast Regional Clinical Database
Participating physicians are linked through a network to share information, provide on-line consultation and assist in facilitating access to any member of the network. Secured clinical data is used for quality improvement, education, research and performance improvement.
COSEHC developed a partnership with community practitioners as a direct intervention to coordinate and facilitate evidence-based best practices. Physicians participating in this network have access to groundbreaking approaches leading to opportunities for improved access to healthcare and better management of cardiovascular disease. The networked practices (Centers of Excellence) in-turn create partnerships within their local communities to improve the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease.
Expert, Experienced Leadership
COSEHC provides physician continuing medical education as an ACCME accredited CME provider. Annual and regional CME activities offer faculty experts in the field of vascular disease. Additionally, many of the COSEHC physician members are domestic and international leaders and consultants in both the cardiovascular scientific and clinical world of healthcare.
The Consortium has developed a translational research network(Consortium) in the Southeast with its interface of academic and clinical practices. This network is the vehicle to disseminate education, research, quality improvement and patient education by the organization to the regional communities.
Continuous Quality Improvement
COSEHC engages in continuous quality improvement through use of CME programming, clinical data analysis, benchmarking capabilities and performance improvement initiatives. COSEHC physicians participate on national and professional organizational guideline development. CQI processes are a critical component of the organization’s mission.
