Establishing MINICOR

In 2016 Dr Juan Gaztanaga approached mentors Dr Michael Farkouh and Dr Valentin Fuster with the concept of developing a large, multi-center retrospective dataset for re-defining arrhythmia risk prediction in non-ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy. This led to engagement of Dr James White, a clinician scientist focused in phenotype-based risk prediction modelling.  A prospective international effort to standardize cardiovascular data acquisition across cardiovascular imaging, electrophysiology and heart failure was envisioned. After two years of discussions with leading clinician scientists, societal representatives, strategic vendor partners and patient advocates the concept of MINICOR was established and an Executive Committee was developed.

 

The MINICOR Executive Committee is represented by clinician scientists from the imaging, electrophysiology, heart failure and clinical trials community collectively committed to the concept that patients, institutions and commercial vendors must work collaboratively to successfully develop, validate and monitor the appropriate use of artificial intelligence in healthcare delivery.  Towards this aim they have each played a critical role in founding the MINICOR initiative and promoting its growth across the community.
