There is opportunity in 2015 for developing or coordinating vascular services, according to the author, an exec with the consulting firm Corazon.  These services are often fragmented and can be characterized as part of turf wars between interventional radiologists, vascular surgeons, and interventional cardiologists.  Reasons why planners should take a look at the vascular service line are reviewed.  I especially like this one planning benchmark given:
