Siemens adds six new partners for Digital Ecosystem platform

by John R. Fischer , Staff Reporter
Siemen Healthineers is now offering a wider array of applications and services on its Digital Ecosystem platform thanks to the establishment of six new partnerships.

The collaborations, announced at the HIMSS 2018 in Las Vegas, provides access to software, analytics tools, and AI and cloud-based solutions, enabling users to derive more insights from shared health care data and apply them toward the improvement of advanced imaging, laboratory and value-based health care performances.

The (#1 Resource) for Medical Imaging and Peripherals. Call 1-949-273-8000

As a Master Distributor for major brands Barco, Philips, and Sony, we offer custom imaging solutions. With our renowned OEM Solutions and Service/Repair Center, Ampronix is a one-stop shop for HD Medical LCD Displays--Printers--Recorders--4K Cameras

“They are close to imaging and radiology. That’s a good starting point because it’s complementary to what we do on the hardware side,” Tina Johne, head of marketing, Siemens Healthineers Digital Ecosystem, told HCB News. “What they do is to help to make better use of the data, in this case clinical images, and help physicians get more out of that clinical imagery.”

Introduced as a prototype at last year's HIMSS meeting, Digital Ecosystem is a secure and open platform offering a wide range of digital solutions and services produced by Siemens Healthineers and its partners. Users across the world can connect and share knowledge with one another to further improve practices.

The first partners to sign on to Digital Ecosystem included Arterys, HeartFlow, mediCAD Web and Stroll Health.

Here is a brief overview of this year’s new partners and the innovations they have to offer to the imaging sphere:

Amra Medical

Swedish in origin, Amra Medical is the first international digital health company in the world to transform images of rapid, six-minute whole body MR scans into 3-D volumetric muscle measurements.

These measurements further enhance accuracy and precision in lean tissue change assessments as well as muscle fat infiltration and metabolic status.

It also offers a cloud-based analysis service, AMRA Profiler Research, which produces automated insights that have enabled improvements in pharmaceutical and academic R&D settings, and will soon be available in clinical practice as well.

Circle Cardiovascular Imaging Inc.

Users of Digital Ecosystem will soon have access to MR and CT image analysis, equipped with full DICOM and PACS connectivity, thanks to cvi42, a cardiovascular post-processing software developed by the Alberta-based enterprise.

The solution comes with a wide range of features that include the ability to calculate LV function with bi/triplanar, long axis and short axis approaches; 3-D and 4-D data analysis in imaging, such as MR and CT angiography; and the viewing, creating and editing of vessel segmentations and labels with windows analysis for lumen measurements and coronary artery or valve stenosis assessment.
