The journey to establish the Heart Care arm of GenesisCare began in 2004. Brisbane based cardiology service provider, Heart Care Partners (HCP), recognised that the provision of high quality care required a commitment to quality processes that were beyond the normal scope of most medical practices.
Over the following 5 years other cardiology service providers, Adelaide Cardiology, Heart Care Victoria and Heart Care WA with the same commitment to excellence, formed the current national network of approximately 70 cardiologists. Services to regional NSW are provided by HCV to the Albury community and by Adelaide Cardiology to the Broken Hill community.
Each practice has migrated towards a fully electronic medical record and contributed to build accountability into every day practice. Subspecialisation flourishes with the clinicians around the country sharing knowledge, experience and research opportunities. The cardiologists have established clinical registry’s to capture patient outcomes providing the opportunity to continuously improve care and also be more accountable. The registries have also provided the data for a number of important scientific publications.
Genesis Heart Care remains committed to building and extending its sustainable quality program. The group has actively partnered with hospitals, health insurers and key industry organisations that support the networks drive to improved patient care.
