Siemens Demonstrates Strategy for Sustainable Cardiovascular Care

April 6, 2011 – At the American College of Cardiology’s 60th Annual Scientific Session, Siemens Healthcare demonstrated solution for sustainable cardiovascular care.

Healthcare providers in the United States are bracing for changes that will increase their accountability through incentives tied to improvements in quality and the overall value of care. With a comprehensive portfolio of solutions from in vitro diagnostics to imaging modalities to information technology (IT), the company is positioned to help providers deliver consistent, high-quality and cost-effective care.

“At the ACC we are demonstrating that our approach is helping cardiovascular professionals prepare to not only meet the challenges ahead but to excel in an environment that will place paramount importance on driving down the cost of care while maximizing quality outcomes,” said Claus Grill, vice president, angiographic, cardiac and X-ray systems, Siemens Healthcare. “Siemens has a longstanding commitment to both innovation and technological integration and our solutions are enabling sounder decisions, safer procedures, stronger operations and smarter investments.”

The company is helping cardiovascular professionals to optimize clinical decision making, employ safer, and in many cases, less invasive procedures, improve operational efficiency, and do more with the investments made in healthcare technology and IT. Ultimately this helps to make the delivery of cardiovascular care more sustainable.

Healthcare providers using the company’s technology can make more informed decisions with superb image quality and integrated informatics. They can also accelerate decision making with knowledge-based workflow protocols.

With high-quality biomarkers, providers can also better direct treatment protocols by diagnosing cardiovascular disease earlier. The X-ray based imaging technologies employ award-winning CARE (Combined Applications to Reduce Exposure) software, which helps providers achieve high quality images at low radiation dose levels. The company’s products also support minimally invasive surgical techniques while improving diagnostic confidence, and integration across health IT systems for physician reporting helps increase the speed to diagnosis.

When working in unison, these solutions help cardiovascular professionals focus on high-quality patient care, so they can put a greater emphasis on meeting evolving national benchmarks for safety and quality. The end result is a consistent, high-quality and cost-effective approach to dealing with more demanding workloads and more difficult clinical scenarios.
