This article was originally published in Start Up

Executive Summary

The recent clinical successes of artificial hearts and VADs knock over the first barrier to adoption of a new, life-saving therapy. But other hurdles remain, including providing the infrastructure to service large numbers of patients going about with extremely complicated, often quirky high-tech implantable devices on which their lives depend.
