While companies can’t control the market forces at play, they can take action to mitigate the risk and impact of supply chain disruption.

In addition and as part of the program launch, Corindus will partner with Houston Methodist to develop a Global Center of Excellence that will seek to advance clinical research on robotics and to train interventional cardiologists on robotic-assisted percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI).

Recently named the No. 1 hospital in Texas for the sixth year in a row by U.S. News & World Report, Houston Methodist Hospital brings together cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons and cardiovascular anesthesiologists who take a collaborative approach to patient care and research. The hospital, which performs 1,100 PCIs annually, is adopting robotics to improve precision and enhance safety for cath lab professionals.

Mark Toland, President and Chief Executive Officer of Corindus, stated, “Houston Methodist is a world-class center and the ideal partner to educate the interventional community on current applications of robotics. The hospital’s leadership and innovation in cardiovascular medicine will help us to advance the field of vascular robotics.”

The Houston Methodist Institute for Technology, Innovation & Education (MITIESM), an innovative virtual hospital and hands-on clinical training facility, will be a robotic-assisted PCI training center. Physicians attending courses at Houston Methodist will participate in didactic education, live case observation with a trained robotic interventionalist, and a unique workshop for a hands-on introduction to robotic-assisted PCI.

Alan Lumsden, M.D., Chief of the Department of Cardiovascular Surgery at Houston Methodist, stated, “We pride ourselves on leading the way in embracing innovative technologies that improve patient care. With adoption of robotics in the cath lab on the rise, comprehensive training programs and innovative product developments are key factors for success.”
