Innovation In the Chest Pain Pathway – How NHS England Is Leading the Way With Cardiac CT and Artificial Intelligence
Published: 24 March 2022
According to NICE, HeartFlow FFRct should be considered as an option for patients with stable, recent-onset chest pain who are offered CCTA. Using HeartFlow FFRct may avoid the need for invasive coronary angiography and revascularisation.
Based on the current evidence and assuming there is access to appropriate CCTA facilities, using HeartFlow FFRct may lead to cost savings of £391 per patient .
During this video series, you will learn more about the GIRFT report and its recommendations to understand the role of CT and FFRct as a way to meet demand with capacity and deliver cost savings to the NHS in accordance with the NICE guidance.
In the third part, you will hear about the MedTech Funding Mandate and the experience of CCGs in adopting CT and FFRct to streamline the Chest Pain Pathway and reduce costs.
