However, the economic impact of AUC implementation has yet to be quantified. A peer-reviewed AUC process was implemented at UnityPoint Trinity in February 2012. Volumes of PCI cases were measured in 12-month intervals for 2 years after AUC implementation and compared with volumes from the… CONTINUE READING
