By Leveraging Data and AnalyticsTreatment uniformity is key to deliver quality
care. Yet, it remains one of the biggest

and recommend treatment based on guidelines
and individual patient data. Their goal was to
improve the quality of care and reduce excessive
cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.
