Ultromics Lauded by Frost & Sullivan for Pioneering AI-based Cardiovascular Suite, EchoGo

The SaaS suite helps physicians automate key measurements and predict the occurrence of CAD, enabling clinicians to proactively recommend preventive actions that improve patient outcomes

LONDON, Sept. 24, 2020 /CNW/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the global AI-based echocardiography market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Ultromics with the 2020 Global New Product Innovation Award for enhancing diagnostic quality in cardiac care units with its AI suite, EchoGo. The FDA and CE-cleared solutions (respectively EchoGo Core and EchoGo Pro) not only automate measurements for heart functions but also empower physicians to predict the occurrence of coronary artery disease (CAD). With a cloud-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) format, they enable quick deployment, minimal training, and hassle-free upgrades.

"Ultromics' EchoGo Core performs cardiac measurements, including ejection fraction (EF), global longitudinal strain (GLS), left ventricular (LV) volume, and myocardial strain reporting. By automating these measurements, Ultromics eases one of the most tedious steps in cardiovascular conditions' diagnosis, thus saving time and removing inter-operator variability," said Parth Shah Research Analyst. "Meanwhile, EchoGo Pro serves as a clinical decision support tool for physicians by assessing the risk profiles of patients. As an industry-first solution within cardiac echocardiography, it enables early detection and prevention of CAD supported by evidence at the point of care."

Furthermore, being a cloud-based solution, it can be delivered as a SaaS model, which allows deployments to be completed faster than with traditional PACS software integrations. The SaaS model also does away with the need for future upgrades, patches, and associated fees. The solution is designed to be intuitive, minimizing the need for substantial user training required by other solutions. Once usage begins, it employs a zero-click, off-the-cart usage approach, eliminating the need for users to manually upload or cross-launch scans.

Being a vendor-neutral solution, Ultromics can target any provider, regardless of the echocardiography equipment they use, across regions. While the EchoGo solutions are currently available in the western markets, Ultromics will target the Asia-Pacific market in the future. Its adoption in developed markets received a major boost in 2020 when the Strain procedure obtained a CPT code that allows physicians to report and bill myocardial strain diagnosis. It is also one of the very few AI solutions in the imaging space to qualify for reimbursement.

"EchoGo's pricing structure delivers significant return on investment with no upfront costs. While competitors offer comparable price points, their need for additional software upgrades and associated installation costs and efforts make them more expensive in the long term. Ultromics adopts a pay-per-use pricing model but can also offer a subscription model depending on the volume of procedures being conducted," noted Shah. "EchoGo automates the entire process, allowing physicians to save on costs while having zero user interactions to obtain results. Overall, Ultromics' price-value proposition helps it capture a larger share of the market and positions it for continued growth globally."
