Strategic collaboration supports BEEAH in creating Jawaher Boston Medical District in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates

Boston, MA, May 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mass General Brigham and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute are collaborating with BEEAH Group, an organization pioneering sustainability and quality of life solutions in the Middle East, to advise in the development of the Jawaher Boston Medical District, a state-of-the-art health care system designed to deliver world-class, patient-centered care through innovation, technology, and sustainability. Mass General Brigham and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute are strategic partners, serving in an advisory capacity, on the project in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, which includes a multi-specialty flagship hospital for integrated, cutting-edge care.

The collaboration combines the depth and breadth of clinical expertise and innovation from Mass General Brigham and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, with BEEAH’s vision to create a sustainable, advanced, patient-centered health system designed to deliver care to patients within – and beyond – hospital walls.

Focused on serving the unique needs of the people of Sharjah and the region, the Jawaher Boston Medical District will offer patients access to the latest clinical expertise across a wide variety of integrated clinical specialties, including lifestyle medicine and prevention, oncology, women’s health, pediatrics, cardiovascular, neurosciences, behavioral health, and rehabilitation medicine. In addition to medical and research expertise, Mass General Brigham and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute will also collaborate with BEEAH Group to advise on best practices in workforce training, development, and public education to the community, with attention to developing local talent.

Mass General Brigham and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute are advising BEEAH Group in their development of multiple facilities, comprising the flagship hospital and ambulatory clinics across Sharjah, with integrated, innovative, and digital solutions, including app-based care and hospital-at-home.

“Mass General Brigham has a deep history of global collaboration aimed at serving and improving the lives of patients around the world,” said Raymond W. Liu, MD, Vice President, Mass General Brigham Global Advisory.  “In collaborating with BEEAH, we hope to contribute our decades of expertise to their development of a unique, innovative vision for a health system that builds on medicine’s leading edge, with an eye to the future.”

“Dana-Farber, a world leader in cancer treatment and research, is committed to advancing the understanding, diagnosis, treatment, cure, and prevention of cancer and related diseases locally and globally,” said Adam Reich, Vice President of Business Initiatives at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. “We are pleased to work with BEEAH and extend our expertise to this collaboration as part of our mission to enhance access to expert cancer care and reduce the burden of cancer worldwide.”

By leveraging its expertise in quality-of-life solutions in Sharjah and the Middle East, BEEAH will create a new destination for the health, wellness and quality of life for the people of Sharjah and the region focused on patient outcomes and experience gleaned from a robust academic ecosystem pioneered, developed and refined over two centuries by Mass General Brigham and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute clinicians.

By pooling their combined medical, research and sustainability expertise, Mass General Brigham, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and BEEAH will develop innovative technologies, diagnostics, delivery models and patient care, ultimately fostering research, directly benefitting patients globally and providing valuable cross-institutional learnings in the United States. The outcome will enable BEEAH to create a comprehensive patient-centered health care system for the people of Sharjah and the UAE, integrating healthcare solutions into homes, schools, workplaces, and communities to help all patients and their families live healthier lives.

“By partnering with Mass General Brigham and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, BEEAH Group is entering the healthcare industry and adding a new dimension to our purpose of pioneering a sustainable quality of life for the people of Sharjah, the UAE, and beyond,” said Khaled Al Huraimel, Group CEO of BEEAH Group. “Drawing from the expertise of our partners in Boston, we look forward to creating not just an integrated health network, but a future-ready healthcare ecosystem. The Jawaher Boston Medical District will provide patients in Sharjah access to world-class healthcare closer to home, while also serving as a hub for the development of cutting-edge treatments and medical advancement.”

The project draws from Mass General Brigham and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s medical and research expertise, as well as BEEAH Group’s experience collaborating and innovating with international partners to create facilities that are sustainable, digitally-enabled and centered around the comfort and convenience of occupants.

Following a meeting of representatives from Mass General Brigham, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and BEEAH Group, Sheikha Jawaher Al Qasimi, Wife of the Ruler of Sharjah and Chairperson of BEEAH Group, and Meghan Gregonis, United States General Consul in Dubai, the Jawaher Boston Medical District in Sharjah was approved to move forward.

Philips’ image-guided navigation increases safety during coronary interventions and reduces the use of contrast media by an average of 28.8%

May 16, 2023

Late-breaking data from DCR4Contrast study presented at EuroPCR 2023 and SCAI 2023 also shows an average reduction in the total number of angiograms obtained during each procedure of 26.3% [1]

Amsterdam, the Netherlands – Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, today announced late-breaking data from the DCR4Contrast (Dynamic Coronary Roadmap for Contrast Reduction) trial, the largest ever randomized controlled multicenter clinical trial to investigate the ability of Philips Dynamic Coronary Roadmap (DCR) to reduce the total iodinated contrast media volumes administered during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures, compared to PCI performed without DCR guidance. The results were presented today at the European Association of Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions (EuroPCR) 2023 course and will also be presented later this week at the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography & Interventions (SCAI) 2023 scientific sessions.

The number of high-risk patients undergoing PCI procedures worldwide has increased significantly [2]. Iodine contrast media is used to visualize the coronary arteries during PCI procedures, but it can potentially harm the kidneys, risking the development of contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) after the procedure. The study found that Dynamic Coronary Roadmap reduced the total iodine contrast volume per procedure on average by 28.8% (95% Confidence Interval: 18.9%, 38.2%), and reduced the number of angiograms per procedure on average by three runs based on a procedure with an average of 11 runs or 26.3% reduction (95% Confidence Interval: 16.8%, 35.1%) [1].

“Enabling physicians to decrease contrast administration during procedures with tools like DCR could make a significant contribution to both the safety and quality of PCI. This is important at a time when PCI is increasingly used in patients with a complex clinical or anatomical profile,” said Prof. Javier Escaned, MD, Head of the Interventional Cardiology Section at Hospital Clinico San Carlos, Madrid Spain, who presented the results today during a late-breaking session at the annual meeting for the EuroPCR 2023 (May 16-19, Paris, France).

“At Philips, we are committed to championing technologies that improve the patient’s experience, improve their safety and expand access to procedures to new patient groups. Dynamic Coronary Roadmap helps achieve these goals by structurally reducing the amount of contrast agent required for PCI procedures,” said Dr. Atul Gupta, Chief Medical Officer for Image Guided Therapy at Philips.

Multi-center, prospective, unblinded, stratified, 1:1 randomized controlled trial
The DCR4Contrast trial ran from November 2019 to February 2023 across hospitals in the U.S., Europe and Israel. In total, 371 patients were randomized and stratified within both ad hoc and planned PCI, according to the number of vessels to be treated. Patients in the DCR group underwent PCI procedures where DCR was used to guide coronary wires, balloons, stents and other PCI diagnostic or therapeutic devices. Patients assigned to the control group underwent PCI without DCR support, following the current standard of care [1].

On Thursday, May 18 Professor John C. Messenger, MD, University of Colorado School of Medicine and Director of the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratories and Cardiovascular ICU at the University of Colorado Hospital will present the data at the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography & Interventions (SCAI): “These results are very exciting,” Professor Messenger commented. “They confirm that Philips Dynamic Coronary Roadmap can be applied to all PCIs and has the potential to increase overall PCI safety by mitigating one of the few preventable contributors (iodinated contrast media use) to contrast-induced acute kidney injury following PCI.” More information on Professor Messenger’s presentation at SCAI can be found here.

Philips’ Dynamic Coronary Roadmap software is a real-time visualization innovation that removes the need for additional contrast media injections by overlaying the angiogram onto real-time motion-compensated 2D fluoroscopic imaging to provide interventionalists with continuous visual feedback on the positioning of guide wires and catheters. Complementing this technology, the Philips IntraSight precision guidance system streamlines lesion assessment, simplifies vessel sizing, enables precise therapy delivery and also supports the operator in their goal to reduce contrast volumes.
