MedAxiom, the nation’s leading cardiovascular healthcare membership organization and performance community, is excited to announce its industry partnership with Hitachi Healthcare Americas, focused on delivering innovative technologies that address the cardiology market.
“Hitachi excels at cardiac ultrasound, especially pediatric and fetal ultrasound, with automated reporting functions integrated out of the box,” said Joe Sasson Ph.D., EVP of MedAxiom Ventures. “We are excited to welcome them as a MedAxiom Industry partner and bring their technologies to our membership community.”
Hitachi's premium cloud-based IT solution, VidiStar® Image and Reporting Platform, streamlines cardiac modality reporting through auto-populated data and guided workflow. The platform enables healthcare professionals to efficiently create reports leveraging a cloud-based image management and analytics platform for improved communication across the entire healthcare organization. Required fields and customizable advanced report logic ensure data-completeness and compliance with organizational and accreditation standards. Hitachi’s ongoing support enables physicians to continue to deliver strong value to their communities as they use these technologies to grow their existing business into other unique patient populations and explore new areas to compete.
“I really think Hitachi is in sync with how clinicians and researchers use technologies today. Usually medicine lags behind other industries. I am very happy to see that all these capabilities are right there for us and that we have been able to make them a part of our practice,” said Devyani Chowdhury, MD, Pediatric Cardiologist, Cardiology Care for Children, Lancaster, PA.
The LISENDO 880 is redefining the vision for cardiovascular ultrasound by delivering superior image quality in your most difficult to image patients across the Fetal, Pediatric and Adult patient spectrum. By combining Lisendo 880 ultrasound and VidiStar advanced analytics, providers are able to improve imaging, communication and reporting in a single solution to better inform decision making and access.
“We can see more with the Hitachi Lisendo images than we could see with any other system we tried out,” Chowdhury says. “This was not a casual decision. We had numerous vendors come into the office, and we imaged our patients simultaneously on several machines at least two or three times prior to making our decision," said Devyani Chowdhury, MD, Pediatric Cardiologist, Cardiology Care for Children, Lancaster, PA.
