With so many changes in the healthcare industry after the enactment of the Affordable Care Act, it is important that we consider how these changes will affect our lives and more importantly, our health. As health care becomes more standardized through Obamacare, it becomes increasingly more important that hospitals cut costs by eliminating unnecessary measures.
Over the years, many hospitals and physicians have overused cardiac telemetry, more commonly known as standard heart monitors. While some attribute the excessive use to patient requests, others claim that hospital practices have simply used cardiac telemetry on most patients for years.
In efforts to combat this growing issue and cut costs, hospitals have begun to reintroduce the importance of following guidelines put in place by the American Heart Association. Recent trials have proven to cut costs immensely, without reducing the quality of care patients are receiving. Simple alterations to the healthcare industry such as this one can help hospitals cut costs, allowing them to refocus the money to more important areas in need.
