The arrival of new medical technologies in prevention, diagnosis, and recovery of the patient is directly associated with the result indicators of the health status and with the increased hope, quality of life, and safety of the healthcare processes.
Medical innovation touches everybody on this planet. This innovation promises new ways to prevent, diagnose, and monitor health issues while the new drugs and devices available are intended to treat and eventually cure diseases. Medical innovation also enriches knowledge while transforming the entire healthcare process.
The ongoing search for better, safer, more effective, less invasive, and less painful diagnostic tools and therapies has encouraged doctors to become true innovators.
Innovation is a true reality in the routine clinical practice. That is precisely how medicine has evolved and advanced together with the scientific and technological development of other disciplines, always in the search for a better care for the patient.
For all these reasons, the Argentine College of Interventional Cardioangiologists (CACI) created an area for innovation called Innova CACI. Actually, this year the first course on innovation focused on the development of technologies to treat cardiovascular disease (mainly) and other medical conditions has come to life. We are proud to announce we have the invaluable collaboration of Dr. Alberto Hendler, and support from the ICI meeting (Innovation in Cardiovascular Intervention), the annual single most important cardiovascular innovation event worldwide.
The history and significance of cardiovascular innovation started in Argentina with Dr. Favaloro (and the development of coronary artery bypass surgery), Dr. Julio Palmas (and his coronary stent), Dr. Juan Carlos Parodi (and his aortic endoprosthesis and carotid shunt, among other important medical advances), and Dr. Luis de la Fuente (innovator and part of the interventional cardiology history of Argentina and Latin America), among other innovators and developers that our country has given to the world.
This first course that is already in in its final stage of development includes the excellent discussions and dissertations of Dr. Alberto Hendler who shared his experience showing us the different steps required for the developers of innovative and disruptive ideas to be successful in their innovative enterprise. Dr. Palmaz, Dr. Parodi, and Dr. de la Fuente have also collaborated with us sharing their life experiences and giving us recommendations and projections on the future of cardiovascular medicine as well as on the obstacles they had to overcome in their professional careers to become the excellent contributors to worldwide medicine they are today.
The first INNOVATION DAY with support from the ICI Meeting will be held at the SOLACI CACI Congress of 2021 in the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina. New ideas and innovations from LATAM innovators will be presented here. Also, they will be able to discuss their ideas with other groups or societies interested in their implementation
I wish to thank the teaching department that is always so involved with these important educational events. We simply could not have done it without it.
In 2022 CACI Innovation will be back with the same idea and commitment we have always had: bring scientific and administrative support to our members and partners to encourage their professional and personal achievements.
President of CACI 2020 – 2021
