American College of Cardiology

Dramatic changes in the health care environment, particularly changes in technology, health care legislation, the geopolitical environment, professional education, increased accountability to payers and patients, pressures in practice, as well as continuing advances in cardiovascular science, continue to alter the needs of College members and the resources at the College’s disposal to meet those needs. The ACC Strategic Framework and ACC Strategy Map should position the College to remain a vibrant professional organization and to continue its mission to advocate for quality cardiovascular care.

The mission of the American College of Cardiology is to advocate for quality cardiovascular care—through education, research promotion, development and application of standards and guidelines—and to influence health care policy.
