Transforming Cardiovascular Education, Together

NEPTUNE BEACH, Fla.--()--MedAxiom, the cardiovascular community’s premier destination for organizational performance solutions, has partnered with Wharton Online to develop a first-of-its-kind business and management program designed specifically for cardiovascular professionals. The program, which features world-class faculty from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and MedAxiom, arms cardiovascular leaders with the tools and techniques needed to achieve the Quadruple Aim of better outcomes, lower costs, improved patient experience and improved clinician experience.

The Cardiovascular Business and Management Essentials Program, an exclusive partnership between the Wharton Online and MedAxiom, focuses on the non-clinical competencies of healthcare operations, economics, change leadership and people management.

“For more than 20 years, MedAxiom has been dedicated to transforming cardiovascular care through education, innovation and community. Wharton’s research-based executive programs combine business fundamentals with the innovative tools and competitive strategies needed to deliver results. Together, MedAxiom and Wharton Online are building tomorrow’s cardiovascular business leaders,” said MedAxiom President and CEO Jerry Blackwell, MD, MBA, FACC, a lead faculty member for the program.

The four-month program is a blend of live and asynchronous sessions that deliver the essential skills and business acumen needed to lead in the competitive and rapidly changing cardiovascular healthcare landscape. The program’s first cohort starts Nov. 21.

“Effectively leading a healthcare organization is not only a matter of clinical excellence. In order to transform a care organization to meet the patient requirements for outcomes and experience, as well as to deal with challenges of costs and employee retention, requires an increasing amount of business savviness. The partnership between Wharton Online and MedAxiom aims to provide the required management skills, including the operational skills of managing patient flows, the understanding of healthcare economics, and capability of organizational leadership," said Program Co-Directors and Wharton Professors Christian Terwiesch, PhD, and Guy David, PhD.
