Access MediQuip's Rapid Response To Medtronic Infusion Pump Recall Protects Patients
Date:7/24/2013

Lake Mary, FL (PRWEB) July 24, 2013

Access MediQuip, the nation's first and largest surgical and implant management company, announced today that its industry leading Recall Management Service? (RMS) is helping protect patients nationwide following Class I recalls of a Medtronic infusion pump. Access MediQuip notified its payer partners immediately of the formal recalls of Medtronic's SynchroMed II Implantable Infusion Pump and identified which members were affected.

In June, Medtronic issued four medical device notifications about flaws with the SynchroMed infusion pumps, which are used to deliver pain and other medications. The flaws in the implant are linked to 14 patient deaths over 17 years. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration classified three of the notifications as Class I recalls, indicating the implantable device may cause serious adverse health consequences, including death. The fourth notification was classified as a Class II recall, indicating the possibility of temporary or medically reversible adverse health consequences.

"When there's a surgical device recall such as Medtronic's, speed and precision is essential to protecting patients, especially with Class I and II recalls when a patient's life and safety is at stake," said Prakash Patel, MD, CEO of Access MediQuip. "RMS accelerates the delivery of recall notices to health plans, physicians, facilities, manufacturers, and patients."

When a recall is initiated, RMS leverages Access MediQuip's expansive database of facility, device, and case-related information to identify potentially affected patients through a series of reactive and proactive processes. This capability allows RMS
