The Opportunity for Increased Quality of Care and Shared Savings With the lmpella® Heart Pump

It is possible that new, minimally invasive technologies, such as the lmpella pVAD, can provide the opportunity to concomitantly improve clinical outcomes, quality of care, and shared savings opportunities for patients and providers. As the heart failure population grows due to longer survival of patients with ischemic heart disease after revascularization procedures such as PCI, understanding the need to balance short-term costs of procedures versus the long-term savings associated with ongoing care and long-term improvement in outcomes will be key.
