Companies to collaborate on product development to create open access to information that will enhance workflow and increase clinician efficiencies

ORLANDO, Fla., March 29 /PRNewswire/ -- ProSolv CardioVascular, a FUJIFILM company and GE Healthcare's Cardiovascular Ultrasound unit announced a formal affiliation under which the companies will work collaboratively to develop an integrated solution aimed at improving workflow for echocardiography departments. Specifically, the organizations hope to expand user access to the advanced quantitative analysis packages currently offered through GE Healthcare by offering workflow and diagnostic reporting efficiencies.

GE Healthcare currently provides an advanced analysis and quantification software module, EchoPAC, specifically designed for the analysis of raw data image sets from GE Healthcare cardiovascular ultrasound systems. Through the new affiliation, GE Healthcare and ProSolv CardioVascular intend to help make information more universally accessible by cardiologists and other clinical staff by working to assure that, no matter where the information is accessed, users have virtually the same level of advanced diagnostic functionality. In doing so, the companies believe users could benefit from a quicker diagnostic process and enhanced diagnostic confidence.

"We're pleased to be working with GE with the aim to deliver advanced integrations that will provide diagnostic and workflow efficiency improvements to our mutual customers," said Aaron Waitz, President and CEO, ProSolv CardioVascular. "There is a definite need for more open access to data throughout cardiovascular departments and healthcare systems as a whole. By leveraging our vendor-neutral solution, we'll aim to provide unlimited access to state of the art ultrasound advanced clinical applications, taking one more step forward on the quest to improve the vital exchange of healthcare information," continued Waitz.

"By providing our ProSolv customers access to raw data analysis and quantitative features of EchoPAC, we could help more customers improve their diagnostic and analysis capabilities and improve patient care," said Al Lojewski, Vice President and General Manager of GE's Cardiovascular Ultrasound unit. "When we do that, we're working toward creating a healthier and more affordable system for patients everywhere."
