AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 22, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Groundbreaking research in the advancement of AI-driven pulmonary embolism (PE) care was unveiled yesterday evening during the 9th Annual Pulmonary Embolism Symposium. Research from three leading institutions utilizing Aidoc's PE AI solution demonstrated immense clinical value in reducing mean hospital length of stay, improving patient access, and correctly alerting care teams of suspected PEs with potential for advanced interventions.
The three studies highlighted the care advantages of utilizing Aidoc in the management of acute pulmonary embolisms, including numerous patient outcome benefits. Key findings from the studies presented include:
37% hospital length of stay reduction with AI triggered PERT activation and initiation of advanced therapies
68% increased access of catheter-directed interventional therapy for intermediate-high to high acuity PE patients
A highly sensitive (95%) early alerting system that successfully identified critical PE patients
"Proving the robustness of any AI solution hinges on the application of scientific rigor and the scrutiny of peer review. Collaborating with these esteemed institutions to evaluate Aidoc's PE AI Solutions is critical to increasing awareness of the multi-faceted benefits AI can provide to patients, providers and health systems," shared Jerome Avondo, VP of Clinical Affairs and Reimbursement, Aidoc. "A difficult to manage, high acuity patient population, such as PE, presents novel opportunities for assessing the impact of artificial intelligence and understanding the overall impact on outcomes."
These studies illustrate the ongoing evolution of Aidoc's AI-powered PE solution from an algorithm to enterprise-wide platform used by Pulmonary Embolism Response Teams (PERTs) across entire health systems. Aidoc's always on AI runs in the background examining both dedicated CT exams and non-dedicated CT exams for both expected and unexpected PE, and brings suspected findings forward to care teams, faster.
For PE management and care, Aidoc's solution serves as an end-to-end workflow used by multidisciplinary PERTs and diagnostic radiologists to manage acute PE. The solution automates the notification and suggests prioritization of CT imaging to aid radiologists in the triage and coordination of the disease's treatment.
PE cases are directed to a mobile workflow, where PERTs can view imaging, access the electronic medical record (EMR) data, and communicate to expedite treatment decisions and improve patient care. PERTs can combine their expertise with the operational efficiency of artificial intelligence to address acute PE directly.
