January 19, 2017 — Apollo Enterprise Imaging Corp. announced it has entered into an agreement with DiACardio Ltd to integrate DiACardio’s cardiology decision support tools into Apollo’s enterprise imaging solution, Apollo EPMM (Enterprise Patient Multimedia Manager).
Apollo will integrate DiACardio's 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.
Recent American College of Cardiology (ACC)/American Heart Association (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 allow cardiologists to diagnose illness more reliably, share images with colleagues more readily, and with precision, quantitatively track response to treatment in an era where cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) devices are being recommended more frequently.
Apollo will be exhibiting at the 2017 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Conference and Exhibition, Feb. 20-22 in Orlando, Fla.
