MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its ongoing analysis of the cardiovascular imaging informatics market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes TOMTEC with the 2016 North America Frost & Sullivan Award for Customer Value Leadership. TOMTEC is emerging as a name to reckon with, especially in the US market, as it rolls out clinical automation, risk management, and therapy monitoring solutions. Its upgraded offerings serve the broader cardiovascular continuum of care by combining advanced imaging interpretation techniques with state-of-the-art workflow solutions.
The Munich-based company has won global recognition for its leading-edge visualization tools for cardiology and radiology imaging. From an advanced applications developer, it has evolved into a vendor of powerful cardiovascular workflow and decision support solutions, including risk management and therapy monitoring, leveraging cutting-edge deep learning technology.
"In line with the current trends, TOMTEC's solution portfolio has been expanded to cover the entire gamut of cardiovascular imaging modalities, and has been re-engineered using the latest zero-footprint IT standards," said Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Dinesh Kumar. "Its vendor-agnostic platform aids seamless connectivity with existing hospital IT systems, thereby enabling tighter integration of stakeholders along the care pathway in facilities of all sizes, even those with complex workflow environments."
TOMTEC was among the early movers in the clinical workflow automation space. In its endeavor to present actionable clinical data, it developed deep learning algorithms that automatically extract features and train various applications, including those for clinical validations. This ensures the delivery of high-quality, validated, and user-independent results for clinical decision support and helps serve as a foundation for data mining in electronic medical records (EMR) for population health management (PHM).
One of the prominent application areas of TOMTEC's workflow automation solutions is the congestive heart failure (CHF) patient population. Caregivers that employ the company's automated image recognition and workflow automation tools are able to measure and monitor their patients in real time. Such an integrated approach makes possible for accurate assessments of early and late stages of heart failure by tracking subclinical deterioration of the heart.
As part of its clinical integration efforts, TOMTEC's cardio-oncology solution resolves the critical side-effects of existing procedures, such as cardio-toxicity. Supporting proprietary technology from its partners, the company ensures precise detection, assessment, and quantification of abnormalities. The integrated management of patient-specific conditions paves the way to more personalized treatments and overall robust patient outcomes.
"One of the most important value propositions of TOMTEC's solutions is their customer centricity," noted Kumar. "Despite competing against much larger vendors providing broad-based imaging IT solutions, TOMTEC's focus on developing a next-generation solution within its core area of expertise sets it apart from the competition in the North American market."
