Do You Know a Healthcare Game Changer?
HeartWell's CHIP program - Complete revascularization for High-risk Indicated Patients - identifies individuals for non-surgical treatment

"We see patients that may have already had surgery, and can't handle another one, or may be too frail to sustain a surgical procedure due to their low ejection fraction, so our goal is to work as a team in a multidisciplinary approach with other cardiac specialists to formulate the right protocol for these patients," said Dr. Ramon Lloret, who is spearheading the CHIP program.
