By adding DiACardio’s groundbreaking cardiac decision support and analysis tools, Apollo continues to provide value-added capabilities integrated into our Enterprise Imaging solution set.
FALLS CHURCH, VA (PRWEB) January 11, 2017
Apollo Enterprise Imaging Corp, the pioneer in enterprise imaging and clinical multimedia management solutions, today announced that it has entered into an agreement with DiACardio Ltd to integrate their revolutionary cardiology decision support tools into Apollo’s Enterprise Imaging solution, Apollo EPMM® (Enterprise Patient Multimedia Manager).
Apollo will integrate DiACardio's innovative LVivo Toolbox, which enables cardiologists to analyze echo clips, automatically and instantly with high accuracy in a click of a button. Based on proprietary technology it enables automated calculation of the Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction and global strain (LVivo EF) in addition to automated segmental wall motion and segmental strain evaluation of the left ventricle (LVivo SG). Using these tools within Apollo EPMM, users will be able to conduct quick, accurate and objective cardiac analyses on echocardiograms at the touch of a button.
"By adding DiACardio’s groundbreaking cardiac decision support and analysis tools, Apollo continues to provide value-added capabilities integrated into our Enterprise Imaging solution set, said Mark Newburger, Apollo President & CEO, “This is part of Apollo’s ongoing strategy to provide clinical specialty analysis and imaging tools that fit seamlessly into the clinician’s workflow.”
DiACardio's VP of Business Development, Shmulik Shpiro added: "We see the collaboration with Apollo as a strategic one, allowing us to expand the utilization of DiACardio's advanced toolbox within cloud-based environments, presenting hospitals and physicians, with a unique workflow solution, enabling an automated, reliable, accurate, and quick clinical interpretation of the heart`s condition, while saving time and money.”
Recent ACC/AHA guideline updates regarding the treatment and evaluation of heart failure underscore the importance of reliable, standardized, reproducible and quantitative reporting of left ventricular function. The combined capabilities of Apollo and DiACardio represent a leap forward in cardiac imaging, establishing a new standard in echocardiography. This advancement allows us to diagnose illness more reliably, share images with colleagues more readily, and with precision, quantitatively track response to treatment in an era where CRT devices are being recommended more frequently. Cardiac experts are delighted by the products' combination of precision and convenience.
The integration of DiACardio’s LVivo toolbox into Apollo EPMM transforms the existing workflow for cardiologists and echo sonographers. The ability to automatically run ejection fraction and cardiac strain analysis from anywhere on any echocardiogram enhances the ability of clinicians to make informed clinical decisions. This is the next generation of echo evaluation.
Apollo will be exhibiting at the 2017 HIMSS Conference and Exhibition, in Orlando, FL, February 20-22. Schedule time to visit us in Booth 3917 to see a demonstration of the integration of DiACardio’s LVivo EF analysis tools with Apollo EPMM at the conference.
