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.

PCI cases that had Major Complications or Comorbidities (MCCs) or 4+ vessels or stents has grown from 23% to 30% in the last four years1
Only 27% of inpatient cases admitted for new-onset heart failure were tested for coronary artery disease within 90 days of their care episode2
