Just as hospitals have recognized the importance of having coordinators to assist with the identification and treatment of VAD patients; hospitals are now utilizing coordinators to identify and facilitate the care of the high-risk PCI patient population. Not only can coordinators help identify patients who may be high-risk PCI candidates, they can facilitate their treatment and conduct valuable educational outreach to other physicians and hospitals.
