    SCAI Recommends Changes in CMS’s Proposed AMI Bundles

    September 21, 2016

Read more about the proposed rule here.
    The Society is concerned that the proposed study may not include robust quality measures, could discourage the appropriate care of patient’s multi-vessel disease and make it more difficult to provide appropriate patients with drug eluting stents. Read our comments here.
