Developer of the Delta System, a Novel Computerized System to Monitor the Safety of new Medical Devices
June 4, 2012 – Frederic Scott Resnic, MD, has been appointed the new chair of Cardiovascular Medicine at Lahey Clinic. Dr. Resnic comes to Lahey from the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston where he was medical director of the Cardiac Catheterization lab for six years. He also served as the lab’s director of medical information systems for more than a decade.
An expert in treating patients with complex coronary and structural heart disease, Dr. Resnic has a special interest in evaluating the safety of procedures and devices used in interventional cardiology. A major focus of his clinical research has been the issue of vascular access site safety and the use of vascular closure devices following percutaneous procedures. Dr. Resnic’s expertise in software applications led to the development of the Delta System, a novel computerized system to monitor the safety of new medical devices. The Delta System is being extended to post-marketing surveillance of other medical devices beyond cardiology. His research is currently supported by 2 NIH RO1s and an FDA grant.
Dr. Resnic received his medical degree from Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York. He completed an internship and residency in Internal Medicine, as well as fellowships in Cardiovascular Medicine and Interventional Cardiology, at Brigham and Women’s.
