Our Guest: Ami Bhatt, MD, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA
Topic: Multidisciplinary Care for Adults with Congenital Heart Disease
Physician innovators live interesting lives, take on compelling projects, and find clever ways to better serve patients. Dr. Bhatt will speak on serving adults with Congenital Heart Disease at Mass General with a small team—two doctors, a nurse practitioner, a nurse, a social worker, and an administrator—that focuses exclusively on these patients.
Bhatt hopes to keep moving in the same direction she has been heading towards for several years—that is, towards better care for her patients at a lower cost to the system. Though she knows she must invest in analyses that provide stronger proof of the value of care her team is providing, she appears well positioned for a future of accountable care. In the interim, she is favorably situated as a small team within a large and profitable department run by colleagues who are eager to support her efforts.
