"Hospital Admission and Readmission for Chronic Cardiovascular Disease: An Avoidable Cost for our Health Service"

 Tom Marwick is a cardiologist who has learned and worked in clinical environments in Australasia, the UK, Europe and the USA for 40 years. This time has witnessed the emergence of epidemics of chronic disease, including type 2 diabetes and heart failure. Like many clinicians, he sees financial waste that arises from lack of integration in our health service, as well as failure to target intervention to levels of risk.

In addition to being a specialist cardiologist, Professor Marwick has a PhD and a Masters in Public Health from Harvard. He has previously worked in the USA as Head of Cardiovascular Imaging at the Cleveland Clinic. His research focus has been stress echocardiography, the detection of early cardiovascular disease, and cost-effective application of cardiac imaging techniques for treatment selection and monitoring. Tom has received multiple awards, including the Simon Dack Award from the American College of Cardiology (2009), and both the RT Hall Prize (2006) and Kempson Maddox Lecture (2011) from the Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand.
