July 12, 2022 — The Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF) and Fogarty Innovation announced today that they are joining forces to launch the "TCT MedTech Innovation Forum” just before the main sessions of TCT (Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics) 2022, the annual scientific symposium of CRF. TCT will be held September 16-19, 2022, in Boston, Massachusetts at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. 

The TCT MedTech Innovation Forum is an intensive interactive summit bringing together clinicians, entrepreneurs, investors, payors, and regulators to identify clinical challenges, uncover opportunities for innovation, and drive a practical understanding of the rewards and complex process required to bring novel medical technologies to market. The intent is to shape the future of patient care and MedTech innovation through informed discussion, debate, and real-world insight. 

“We’re thrilled to partner with Fogarty Innovation to create a world-class forum with the goal of inspiring and driving innovation forward to improve the quality, accessibility, and cost of delivering cardiovascular care,” said Juan F. Granada, MD, President and Chief Executive Officer of CRF. “We’re committed to bringing the latest medical breakthroughs to physicians and their patients as quickly as possible. This forum will convene like-minded individuals with a collective vision, passion, and purpose in a stimulating environment that fosters networking, promotes collaborations, and sparks novel ideas which are essential to driving innovation and improving healthcare.” 

“TCT is the premier gathering for practitioners and researchers in interventional cardiovascular medicine,” said Andrew Cleeland, Chief Executive Officer of Fogarty Innovation. “Bringing these clinicians together with stakeholders from across the ecosystem is critical to advancing MedTech innovation. In keeping with Fogarty Innovation’s mission, we anticipate facilitating collaborations to foster novel solutions which will transform care for patients everywhere.” 

The Forum will offer multiple formats for audience engagement. Presenters and panel discussants will share interdisciplinary perspectives and evaluate emerging trends in MedTech innovation, encompassing digital health, health policy and equity, clinical challenges, financing, regulatory and reimbursement policy, and evolving healthcare delivery models.a
