43 Inspired heart experts redefining heart care
ProvenCare® improves results
There is a difference in how heart by-pass surgery is delivered. The cardiac experts at Geisinger call that difference ProvenCare. And, it's changing patients' lives for the better. Together, the Geisinger team closely tracks the thousands of heart procedures they perform…so as to continuously adjust and advance patient care.
At Geisinger, we've always been dedicated to providing the highest quality heart care. And, with ProvenCare, we've taken that commitment one giant step further. The result is an intensive treatment program which assures that the best care is delivered to coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) patients.
Our team spent countless hours reassessing how we perform bypass surgery. They examined patient care records. They also researched "best treatment" recommendations from the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association. In the end, our heart surgeons developed 40 critical steps that greatly improve the chances of a successful CABG operation and recovery.
Always following those 40 steps is why our heart surgery patients spend fewer days in intensive care and recover faster. It’s also why our success rates exceed the national average.
