DUBLIN, 28-Feb-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — Medtronic plc (NYSE:MDT) today announced an economic analysis of five-year data showing that patients with mild heart failure who get cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) devices early in their treatment live longer and that implanting these devices is cost-effective, compared to optimal medical therapy. Results from the REVERSE (REsynchronization reVErses Remodeling in Systolic left vEntricular dysfunction) trial were published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology: Heart Failure. CRT is an established treatment for indicated patients with heart failure that has been demonstrated to improve survival and quality of life, and reduce hospitalizations. However, despite significant clinical evidence and guideline recommendations in support of CRT, studies have shown the therapy to be underutilized in eligible patients1. REVERSE is the largest study to assess the long-term clinical impact and survival benefit of devices combining CRT with a defibrillator compared with CRT pacemakers. It is also the first study to show the cost-effectiveness of CRT when implanted earlier in the disease state. “These new data expand upon the current evidence and guidelines for the treatment of heart failure, by showing that CRT in patients with mildly symptomatic heart failure is beneficial, both from a clinical perspective, as well as from a financial perspective,” said Michael R. Gold, M.D., Ph.D., chief of cardiology, Michael E Assey Professor of Medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina. “REVERSE confirms that implanting CRT earlier slows the progression of heart failure, reduces heart failure-related hospitalizations and deaths, and prolongs life, all while being very cost-effective.” REVERSE was a prospective, randomized, double-blind study of 610 patients with mild heart failure (those designated New York Heart Association Class I/II) from North America and Europe. All patients were implanted with a CRT-pacemaker (CRT-P) or -defibrillator (CRT-D) and randomly assigned (2:1) to either CRT-ON or CRT-OFF. Previously published REVERSE findings showed a trend that CRT-ON increased survival by nearly 23 percent (52.5 percent vs. 29.7 percent, p=0.21), leading to an expected survival rate of 9.76 years for CRT-ON versus 7.5 years for CRT-OFF2. Based on these findings, the new analysis shows – for the first time under the Medicare setting – that CRT is a cost-effective option for patients with mild heart failure: CRT-ON yields an incremental cost effectiveness ratio (ICER) of $8,840 per Quality-Adjusted Life Year (QALY) gained over a patient’s lifetime, compared to CRT-OFF. (ICER is a statistic that summarizes the cost-effectiveness of a healthcare intervention, and QALY is a measure of the quantity and quality of life.) Additionally, REVERSE has shown that CRT-D provides a significant improvement in survival – 2.77 additional years of life – compared to CRT-P devices2. This benefit results in a first-of-its-kind finding that CRT-D is a cost-effective alternative to CRT-P, yielding an ICER of $43,678/QALY gained over the patient’s lifetime, lower than the benchmark for therapy cost effectiveness of other serious chronic conditions that cost at least $50,000 per QALY gained. Thus, while CRT-D costs more than CRT-P, the added 2.77 years of life justify the additional cost over a patient’s lifetime2. Finally, these analyses show CRT delays disease progression, which means that initially implanting a CRT-D is essentially cost-neutral compared to implanting an ICD and implanting a CRT-D later, when the disease worsens. With early CRT-D implantation slowing disease progress and increasing survival, and without any discounting of future benefits and cost applied, early CRT-D led to 1.24 years of additional survival, resulting in an ICER of $1,829 per year of life gained. “While CRT has long been established as a therapy that significantly improves outcomes for patients with heart failure, it is consistently underutilized,” said David Steinhaus, M.D., vice president and general manager of the Heart Failure business, and medical director for the Cardiac Rhythm and Heart Failure division of Medtronic. “Not only does REVERSE demonstrate the clinical benefit of CRT, it also quantifies the economic value of CRT, providing hospital systems with valuable information to help make informed decisions about CRT as a treatment option and the optimal timing of CRT for patients with heart failure. Ultimately, the goal is to increase value by improving patient outcomes and optimizing costs.” In collaboration with leading clinicians, researchers and scientists worldwide, Medtronic offers the broadest range of innovative medical technology for the interventional and surgical treatment of cardiovascular disease and cardiac arrhythmias.

Heart failure patients registered in the Swedish Heart Failure Registry receive better medication and have a 35 percent lower risk of death than unregistered patients, according to a new study from Karolinska Institutet in Sweden. The findings are presented in the European Journal of Heart Failure. Health quality registries are used for many purposes including to report quality of care and to identify areas for quality improvement. Sweden has been a pioneer in the establishment of quality registries for a broad range of diseases. The Swedish Heart Failure Registry (SwedeHF; RiksSvikt) registers clinical and treatment data for patients with heart failure from most hospitals in Sweden. RiksSvikt is voluntary, so some but not other patients get registered, and this is determined largely by the availability of staff and resources at local hospitals. In the current study, a Swedish team comprising researchers at Karolinska Institutet, Linköping University, and Uppsala Clinical Research Center analyzed data from 231,437 patients who were diagnosed with heart failure in Sweden 2006-2013. A comparison between those who were registered in RiksSvikt and those who were not showed that the registered patients had a remarkable 35 percent lower risk of death. The investment in quality registries in Sweden has provided helpful quality reporting and contributed to improved quality of care, but the concrete health benefits for patients have been less clear. "Now we also see that in heart failure, quality reporting translates directly into better survival," says Associate Professor Lars H. Lund at Karolinska Institutet's Department of Medicine who led the study. "It is imperative that the investment in registries from the government, hospitals and clinicians continues to expand, as this will lead to better patient survival". Further analyses showed that patients who were registered in RiksSvikt were more likely to receive heart failure medications than unregistered patients, and that this to a large extent explained the difference in survival. "There are several common treatments for heart failure which are known to cost-effectively reduce the risk of hospitalization and death, but these are underutilized," says Associate Professor Lars H. Lund. Heart failure is a common condition in which the heart is unable to pump sufficient quantities of blood around the body. It is the most common cause of hospitalization in Sweden and is associated with a high risk of death. The study was financed by The Swedish Research Council, The Swedish Heart-Lung Foundation, The Stockholm County Council and AstraZeneca. There are no conflicts of interest declared related to the study. Outside the work submitted, some of the researchers have received research grants, speaker's fees and/or consulting fees from AstraZeneca, Novartis, Bayer, Vifor Pharma, Relypsa, Boston Scientific, St Jude, Medtronic, HeartWare and Aspen Pharma. One of the researchers is employed as epidemiologist by AstraZeneca.

Changing mindset in manufacturing Quality Management provides an opportunity for quality professionals to shift to a strategic, proactive approach that benefits their companies and their careers FAIRFAX, VA--(Marketwired - Mar 1, 2017) - InfinityQS® International, Inc. (InfinityQS), the global authority on data-driven enterprise quality, advises manufacturers to reconsider their approach to Quality Management. By moving out of "firefighting" mode and into a proactive, data-driven mindset, quality professionals can solve problems more quickly -- or even prevent them in the first place. As a result, quality teams can focus instead on finding opportunities to improve operations and product quality. Most quality professionals operate in fire drill mode in a landscape of problem alarms and reactive decision-making. Because problems are typically identified after a process or machine fails or quality checks show that products fall outside of specifications, quality teams are left scrambling to minimize damage, including rework, recall, and lost time and productivity. Michael Lyle, President and CEO, InfinityQS, said, "Most Quality Management solutions operate under a short-sighted reactive status quo. The system might alert you to problems that have already occurred, but they don't have the capacity to help you predict and prevent problems -- or locate potential areas for improvement across the manufacturing enterprise. Doing so can provide manufacturers a competitive advantage." InfinityQS suggests that manufacturers turn instead to a Quality Management approach that unifies quality data from across the entire enterprise and leverages advanced analytics to enable insight into operational variances over time. This type of solution enables quality teams to notice small changes in processes or machine performance that indicate the early stages of an issue. By predicting problems in this way, manufacturers can catch issues earlier. Even more important is the fact that this level of insight can also be used to proactively identify opportunities for improvement that can significantly increase yield and efficiency across the enterprise. This converts quality professionals from reactive firefighters into quality and process strategists identifying competitive improvement opportunities. To learn more about how data-driven, operational insight can benefit quality teams and provide a competitive advantage for manufacturers, download InfinityQS's new white paper, "Operational Insight: Information That Drives Excellence." About InfinityQS International, Inc. InfinityQS International, Inc. is the global authority on data-driven enterprise quality. The company's Manufacturing Intelligence solutions deliver unparalleled visibility across the enterprise, from the shop floor to the boardroom, enabling manufacturers to Re-imagine Quality and transform it from a problem into a competitive advantage. Powered by centralized analytics, InfinityQS's solutions provide operational insight to enable global manufacturers to improve product quality; decrease costs and risk; maintain or improve compliance; and make strategic, data-driven business decisions.
