Cardiology Quality Improvement Report – Medicinal Therapy

ADC Cardiology Quality Chart comparing Beta Blocker and AntiPlatelet Therapy vs National average

Beta Blocker Therapy – Percentage of patients aged 18 years and older with a diagnosis of heart failure who also have LVSD and who were prescribed beta blocker therapy

About this quality report

This report compares The Austin Diagnostic Clinic to the national average in prescribing beta blockers and anti-platelet therapies for cholesterol management.

Use of antiplatelet therapy has shown to reduce the occurrence of cardiac events in patients with coronary artery disease, including a heart attack.  For those who have experienced a heart attack, medications called beta-blockers can be prescribed to regulate heart rate and improve heart function.

The most recent report in January 2013 shows ADC exceeds the national average in both Anti Platelet and Beta Blocker Therapies for cardiac disease management.
