EMS 12-Lead podcast – Episode #9 – Thomas Concannon, ph.D. talks about the regionalization of STEMI care and the proliferation of PCI hospitals in the United States
In this episode of the EMS 12-Lead podcast we're joined by Thomas Concannon, ph.D., Assistant Professor of Medicine at Tufts Medical Center and Tufts University School of Medicine. He's an academic researcher who has analyzed the explosion of PCI hospitals in the United States and reached the un-intuitive conclusion that the increased number of PCI hospitals has not resulted in more timely access to reperfusion for patients suffering an acute STEMI. The reasons are interesting and it turns out that EMS may play the most important role of all going forward!

"Hospitals invested heavily in new PCI capability during the 5 years from 2001 to 2006, making it newly available in 519 hospitals, for a total of 1695 (36.3% of all eligible hospitals) acute care hospitals in the United States This heavy investment in new PCI capability represented a relative increase of 44% over 2001 but did not result in an appreciable change in timely access to the procedure."
