Clinical efficiency in coronary artery disease care

 

Combine confidence and speed in diagnosis with efficient and effective treatment to improve outcomes for your patients.

Assessing a patient quickly and accurately and delivering effective treatment is essential

 

For the diagnosis and treatment of coronary artery disease, you are constantly striving to optimize the clinical pathway. This requires solutions that help you assess patient risks correctly, select the right treatment path for each patient and help deliver effective, efficient treatment in interventional procedures. We offer integrated solutions that work together to help deliver robust clinical results along with connected workflows to drive departmental efficiency in coronary artery disease care.

With the prevalence of coronary artery disease, a growing number of patients require care. To ensure patients receive high quality of care in an effective and efficient manner, it becomes increasingly important to help optimize the care pathway.

Challenges you face in diagnosis

Costly retesting
Due to non-invasive diagnostic exams with suboptimal images.1

Better patient risk stratification
40% of diagnostic angiographies are followed by PCI. 60% are not.2

Immediate access
Difficult to get immediate access to tools, images and reporting for multimodality diagnosis.

Challenges you face in treatment

More patients
Health systems are seeing more patients with complex disease or classified high-risk are becoming eligible for minimally-invasive cardiac procedures.3

Data in silos
Data in the pre-procedure and intra-procedure are not consistently and meaningfully connected, hindering optimal treatment planning and prediction.4

4.  When an occluded blood vessel that requires treatment is identified, a percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is a therapeutic procedure that can be utilized to treat the vessel. A PCI includes angioplasty and positioning a stent across the stenosis to open the vessel. Clinicians conventionally rely on angiography and physiologic measurements of pressure and/or flow, which are not meaningfully connected, to plan a therapeutic intervention. Planning the therapeutic intervention can include selecting various parameters related to the stent, such as positioning, length, diameter, etc. While the collected external cardiac test data, intravascular imaging data, and/or physiologic data can help in planning the therapeutic intervention, their efficacy is limited by the fact they exist as separate tests. For example, clinicians are unable to easily visualize where in the blood vessel the data was collected. Further, physiologic data and external cardiac test data are not integrated in a meaningful way that would allow a clinician to assess the effect of a PCI on, e.g., blood flow to the myocardium. Data on file. Tochterman et al.
