Business Case

Designed a cardiovascular risk management program for private insurers in Mexico

A mid-sized medical device company sought a better understanding of the cardiovascular event risk of bariatric surgery to inform discussions with private insurers in Mexico. LSC researched and analyzed the bariatric surgery landscape and designed a cardiovascular risk management program aimed at patients with morbid obesity. LSC’s report enhanced the understanding of cardiovascular risk in the field and identified specific patient characteristics that that defined prime targets for bariatric surgery, ensuring a tailored, cardiovascular risk-mitigated approach to bariatric surgery. Our client was able to successfully utilize the report in negotiations with payers to open and ensure access to care for low risk patients.
