Kjaya Medical Receives Investment through Irish Startup Program

November 30, 2011 — Kjaya Medical has been awarded a substantial financial investment through Enterprise Ireland’s High Potential Start-Up program. The prestigious program is administered through the Irish state agency responsible for supporting the development of manufacturing and internationally traded service companies. Kjaya underwent a rigorous due diligence process prior to selection and was one of only 24 such high tech firms selected for the program in Q2 of this year.

Commenting on the award, Kovey Kovalan, founder and president of Kjaya said, “We are extremely honored to have been selected for this award from among such a prestigious group of potential recipients.  The funding provides us with a launching pad to implement our ambitious expansion plans. We are looking forward to progressing our business to the next level with the help of this innovative program.”

Speaking about the recent group of Start-Up award winners, Greg Treston, head of High Potential Start Ups and Scaling at Enterprise Ireland, said: “These are ambitious companies, with highly innovative products and business development strategies that will enable them to carve out a place in global markets.”

“Kjaya Medical was selected because of its innovative use of gaming technology to overcome the challenges of medical image data management to improve patient care,” said Brendan Fay, development advisor for Enterprise Ireland. “Its unique VoXcell solution provides enhanced visualization in a cloud environment in a cost-effective manner with technology that is significantly ahead of competing solutions.”

Customers only pay a per-study fee for every scan sent to the VoXcell cloud. Kjaya estimates that customers experience a 30-40 percent cost savings using its fee-per-study offering compared to maintaining conventional system costs.

The company’s proprietary imaging software relies on gaming technology-based supercomputers to produce and stream Web-based Intelligent Visualizations instantaneously. Its supercomputing cloud produces and streams visualizations instantaneously without transmitting the raw scan. Because scans are not downloaded to the local PC, the technology also offers high patient privacy, while ensuring HIPAA and HITECH Act compliance. The result is secure access to interactive diagnostic-quality images on-demand in real-time on any computer including the iPad.            

Users have immediate access to images stored on the VoXcell cloud.   Image communication requires no advance set up between sites and can be quickly accomplished on-the-fly.   

The company will also debut iShareScan.com, a workstation-class cloud-based image sharing solution available at no cost to imaging sites. It takes advantage of the same super-computing cloud technology as VoXcell. Cases can be rapidly viewed in high resolution, and users can share interactive 3-D information with physicians and patients over the web. 

This information is valuable in a number of cases. These include a trauma transfer for a patient with fractured bone visualized in clear 3-D; an oncologist viewing intuitive 3-D positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET-CT) fusion of a cancer; or on-demand 3-D manipulation by a surgeon before or during surgery. The technology also eliminates the use of CDs, VPN connections and slow web access from facilities’ limited bandwidth.
