With Novocardia by CVAUSA,
We're Building a New Care Model

With CVAUSA’s Novocardia division, we are unlocking our physician partners’ ability to succeed in value-based heart and vascular care — leading to happier patients, happier clinicians, and better quality care at a lower total cost.

Empowering Cardiovascular Specialists to Transform Patient Care

Novocardia is the value-based care division of CVAUSA, focusing on the development, testing, and scalability of clinical and contracting models that improve quality of care and efficiency while lowering costs. Our mission is to help partner groups thrive in the new era of value-based care and risk-based reimbursement.

Data on Performance

As the leading national network of cardiovascular specialists, we have access to a wealth of data to guide future decisions and improve care models.

How We’re Building a Better Cardiovascular Care System



Working in close collaboration with CVAUSA physician partners, we will develop a new care model. 



We will test our model to ensure success for patients, payors, and physicians.



We will use the experience gained through testing to refine and strengthen our approach.



In collaboration with our  physician partners, we will scale the most promising care models to revolutionize cardiovascular care.

Leading the Way for Value-Based Cardiology

At CVAUSA, we believe that entrepreneurial cardiovascular specialists hold the key to a more efficient and effective cardiovascular care system for patients, payors, and physicians.

Novocardia will serve as the catalyst to revamp a system not consistently meeting Americans’ cardiovascular care needs. We will help cardiovascular specialists continue delivering even higher-value care while supporting the rollout of new contracting models that reward efforts to reduce avoidable healthcare spending.

The Future is Risk-Based Reimbursement

Under innovative new contracting models, CVAUSA physician partners will be able to reduce the total cost of cardiovascular care — providing specialists with robust financial benefits in addition to improving the quality of care for patients.

As our Novocardia division develops models that utilize risk-based reimbursement, CVAUSA will provide the support our partner groups need to flourish under these new payment models.
