Women's Cardiovascular Program - UF Health Cardiovascular Center - Jacksonville
Heart disease is the leading killer of both men and women in the United States. However, for more than two decades, more women than men have died of heart disease annually. One of the principal challenges is that the symptoms of heart disease in women can be very different from symptoms in men. Because of this, the UF Health Cardiovascular Center - Jacksonville features a program to specifically address the heart health needs of women. Led by Dr. Gladys Velarde, the Women's Cardiovascular Program offers specialized care based on the unique needs of women. Using the most advanced diagnostic equipment and treatments available, the University of Florida cardiologists in the Women's Cardiovascular Program work together to improve the quality of life for their patients.

How to Prepare for your Next Emergency (Long Version) - UF Health
When patients come into the emergency department with little or no information about their health history, the medications they're taking and other key medical background, it can make it more difficult for medical professionals to help them. Making simple preparations ahead of any emergency could be the difference between life and death. Even if you have no expectation of needing to go to an emergency department, make an "Emergency Go Bag" just in case. The bag should include: • An up-to-date list of your current medications and allergies • Medication bottles if possible • A list of any health issues you have • A list of past surgeries or treatments you've had • Contact information for two to three family members you would want contacted in an emergency • A list of your doctors -- both primary care and specialists -- and contact information for each of them • Any additional important forms, such as an advance directive and power of attorney Funding for this educational video was provided by Riverside Hospital Foundation and the University of Florida College of Medicine -- Jacksonville Department of Emergency Medicine. http://hscj.ufl.edu/emergency-medicine/

UF cardiologists, surgeons team up to offer life-extending procedure
GAINESVILLE, Fla. — For patients who have severe narrowing of the aortic valve, a condition known as aortic stenosis, standard treatment is surgical replacement of the damaged valve. But advanced age or medical problems such as lung disease prevent many of those patients from having open chest surgery. In the past, the best such patients could hope for was to control their symptoms with medications. Now they can live longer thanks to a new minimally invasive treatment that involves inserting an artificial valve that takes over the work of the diseased valve. The University of Florida is among a limited number of facilities around the country initially approved to offer the procedure. "It's exciting — this technology opens an option for patients who otherwise do not have a repair option," said cardiologist Anthony A. Bavry, M.D., M.P.H., an assistant professor in the UF College of Medicine's department of medicine. "Previously we had to treat these patients with medications, and unfortunately many did not do well. This is a big change." The new valve replacement technique, called transcatheter aortic valve replacement, or TAVR, was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in November 2011. Medical practices approved to perform the procedure had to demonstrate high levels of expertise and collaboration in cardiology and surgery, as well as high-quality facilities for conducting the procedure and collecting data for patient care and monitoring. Bavry and R. David Anderson, M.D., M.S., director of interventional cardiology at UF, will team with thoracic and cardiovascular surgeons Thomas M. Beaver, M.D., M.P.H., and Charles T. Klodell, M.D., to do the procedure at UF&Shands, the University of Florida Academic Health Center. Working in such multidisciplinary teams streamlines and speeds patient evaluation and decisions about the best course of action.

Orlando Health, University of Florida, Shands HealthCare Press Conference
Orlando Health, the University of Florida and Shands HealthCare announced today their intent to collaborate on new health initiatives that will make care more accessible to millions of patients over a 20-county region and expand training opportunities for physicians. Officials signed a memorandum of understanding that provides a foundation for these and other related efforts, a natural result of years of close working relationships. Under the agreement, the organizations will negotiate to form joint clinical programs in the areas of pediatrics, neuroscience, oncology, women's health, transplantation and cardiovascular medicine, including a plan to develop a regional comprehensive cardiac care program. They also will look to increase undergraduate and graduate medical residency and fellowship training opportunities at Orlando Health, and open opportunities for conducting clinical trials through UF's robust clinical research program, while also launching common approaches to quality care and safety initiatives. "The formal affiliation of Orlando Health with the University of Florida and Shands will build on our longstanding and valuable relationship and enhance our collective energies as regional and statewide clinical leaders," said David S. Guzick, M.D., Ph.D., senior vice president for health affairs at UF and president of the UF&Shands Health System. "As the health-care needs of patients throughout Central and North Central Florida continue to grow, we will seek out ways to collaborate on comprehensive clinical programs for adults and children and fortify our role as educational leaders in delivering the highest-quality education for future physicians and other health providers." This agreement will pave the way for the organizations to meet new mandates under health-care reform, particularly those addressing quality of care. "Our focus at Orlando Health has always been to provide patients with the highest quality of health care. New health-care reform initiatives add even greater emphasis to improving the quality and efficiency of health-care services," said John Hillenmeyer, president and CEO of Orlando Health. "This alliance will open additional opportunities for us to work together to implement programs and modify models and structures that will positively impact the quality of healthcare for patients across multiple Florida counties." Physicians with these organizations will play an integral role in these efforts. Through this collaboration, Orlando Health physicians could receive faculty appointments, teach UF medical students or graduate medical trainees, or participate in UF-sponsored clinical trials. The agreement also could result in increased use of Orlando Health as a training site for UF medical residents and fellows. It is also envisioned that clinical faculty from UF's College of Medicine could participate with Orlando Health medical staff on future clinical services. The alliance also opens up additional opportunities for the physician groups to work together to develop joint clinical protocols that will enhance quality and safety for patients. More than 2.5 million Floridians across nearly 20 counties are served by the three health-care organizations. In a proactive response to pending health-care reform mandates, the organizations will develop similar or compatible electronic medical records capabilities and quality information systems to ensure easy access to relevant patient health information. They also are seeking to develop a comprehensive system of care that provides a spectrum of health-care services — from primary care to the most complex, such as transplantation. In addition, the organizations, which share a common set of values in education, research and charitable missions, will pursue joint safety net ventures to better provide care to the traditional "safety net" patient population. Safety net patients are patients with limited or no access to health care due to their financial circumstances, insurance status or health condition. "This collaboration lays the groundwork for advancing discussions to enhance patient care, medical education and research advances and will look to build upon affiliations each of the organizations already has in place with other health-care entities," Hillenmeyer said.
