Hitachi Supports ASE Foundation Cardiovascular Outreach Mission in West Virginia

October 29, 2018 — Hitachi Healthcare Americas participated in the cardiovascular screening and diagnostic triage event that took place across four clinical sites in the greater Morgantown, W. V. on Oct. 20, 2018. This event provided 375 rural patients a resource for diagnostic screening not normally available in their region.

The American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) Foundation is the ASE’s charitable arm. Through their health outreach events program, the ASE Foundation brings adult and pediatric cardiac care to areas in need to advance population health research and to ultimately provide quality diagnostic cardiac care to the underserved.

Hitachi has worked closely with the ASE Foundation and the Heart and Vascular Institute at West Virginia University to assist in delivering this important care. Hitachi provided premium-level ultrasound systems for patients needing high-level echocardiograms. In addition, Hitachi’s Informatics Division provided image review and reporting services, via cloud-based picture archiving and communication system (PACS) technology, using the VidiStar platform.

The Lisendo 880, Hitachi’s premium 2-D/3-D diagnostic ultrasound solution delivers high-quality imaging for cardiovascular patients in any clinical setting. A true one-system solution for  adult, fetal, pediatric and congenital patients, according to Hitachi, Lisendo 880 boasts HDAnalytics advanced analysis, HemoDynamic Structural Intelligence, an artificial intelligence (AI)-fueled automation workflow and clinical reporting analytics.

Integrated with the Lisendo 880 is VidiStar, Hitachi’s cloud-based image management and analytics platform enabling physicians to create value-based reports. As clients move towards value-based care, VidiStar can help them navigate the transition successfully:

  • With cloud-based solutions, that efficiently deploy and adopt technology across complex and diverse organizations;
  • With structured reporting, that standardizes and improves the quality of clinical reports and streamlines communication while reducing errors and decreasing turnaround time; and
  • With advanced analytics and data mining, that identifies key value drivers and improves decision making.
