St Jude Medical’s CardioMEMS HF System recognised for innovation

25th June 2015

St Jude Medical has announced that its CardioMEMS HF System was named as one of the medical innovations at Premier, Inc.'s 2015 Breakthroughs Conference and Exhibition.

The event, which recognises significant advances in healthcare while highlighting medical industry suppliers committed to innovation and improving patient outcomes, saw the device win praise from clinicians and other US healthcare system members.

CardioMEMS HF was showcased at the Innovation Celebration due to its uniqueness, ability to have an impact on unmet clinical needs and potential to improve heart failure patients' care.

It is supported by a strong background of clinical evidence, include the CHAMPION trial, which demonstrated a 37 percent reduction in heart failure hospitalisations during an average follow-up duration of 15 months.

Joel Becker, president of St Jude Medical's business in the Americas, said: "St Jude Medical is excited to offer physicians a unique, proactive management tool like the CardioMEMS HF System, which sets a new standard of care for the management of heart failure."

Premier, Inc is a leading healthcare improvement company in the US, presiding over a network of 3,400 US hospitals and 110,000 other providers.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-801792399-ADNFCR
