SpecialtyCare is an industry leader in perfusion data and research. Because our perfusionists are paired with surgical teams in thousands of cases across the country, we’re able to gather data on techniques that typically aren’t known in remote medical facilities or by other providers with a more limited research range. This gives us an edge when it comes to up-to-date data.
We invented SCOPE™, the SpecialtyCare Operative Procedural Registry, the largest multi-institutional clinical database of its kind. Members of our medical office analyze case data and share the scientific findings to our clinical professionals so that the evidence-based trends and best practices can be shared with surgeons and OR teams across the nation, which also brings innovation at the local level.
We’re also happy to promote over two-dozen perfusion publications authored by our very own SpecialtyCare associates, with more to come in the near future as we continue to be an industry leader in perfusion data. SpecialtyCare associates and leadership have authored countless perfusion articles and studies in many different perfusion publications. These publications include: The Annals of Thoracic Surgery, Perfusion, Journal of ExtraCorporeal Technology, Journal of Cardiac Failure, Critical Care Nursing Quarterly, American Journal of Medical Quality, The Heart Surgery Forum, Journal of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Anesthesia, and more.
