Endotronix's Cordella Heart Failure System Integrated With AHA's Digital Resources
June 28, 2018—Endotronix, Inc. announced that the company has joined the American Heart Association’s (AHA) Center for Health Technology & Innovation’s Innovators Network, which allows Endotronix to integrate the AHA’s digital resources into the company's Cordella heart failure system to support guideline-based care.
According to the company, the collaboration between Endotronix and the AHA aims to shift the heart failure care paradigm and improve at-home care management by coupling Endotronix’s Cordella system with the AHA’s patient education materials and content. Cordella is comprehensive heart failure management system that is designed to streamline clinical workflow.
The Cordella system allows physicians to effectively scale heart failure management with the AHA’s comprehensive CarePlans and education materials to improve patient outcomes. The easy-to-use system extends clinical care into the home by collecting and securely transmitting daily patient clinical data and insights to the clinician, which enable guideline-directed medical therapy. For suitable patients, the system seamlessly integrates pulmonary artery pressure data with a proprietary, wireless, implantable sensor that is currently in late-stage clinical development.
The company advised that the Cordella system is currently in commercial use in the United States and a targeted launch is expected to accelerate, in anticipation of the United States pivotal study for the Cordella pulmonary artery pressure sensor planned for the near future. In January, Endotronix announced the successful first-in-human (FIH) implantation of the Cordella pulmonary artery pressure sensor and initiation of the SIRONA FIH clinical trial.
