Abstract

The management of complex cardiovascular disease has changed markedly with the development of new strategies of care, an increasing amount of scientific evidence-based data and appropriate use criteria. Applying this plethora of information and synthesizing it for presentation and recommendations to the patient and family have assumed central importance. To facilitate this process of patient centric evidence-based care multidisciplinary Heart Teams have become identified as cornerstones. While specific strategies for implementation of these teams will vary, this broad approach will become the standard of cardiovascular care.
