KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, and WELLINGTON, New Zealand, March 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the breast density assessment solutions market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Volpara Solutions™ with the 2016 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Competitive Strategy Innovation and Leadership. Volpara Solutions offers a suite of multi-vendor breast imaging tools including VolparaDensity, VolparaAnalytics, VolparaDose, and VolparaResearch. The quantitative software tools allow for personalized measurements of volumetric breast density, patient dose, breast compression and other factors designed to help maintain accuracy and consistent quality in breast screening.
Volpara Solutions' technology is installed in more than 30 countries and its geographic footprint continues to expand. To date, more than 9 million women have had their breast density assessed by VolparaDensity.
VolparaAnalytics provides quality metrics and key performance indicators that let facilities evaluate their mammography and tomosynthesis system utilization, examination times, patient dose, patient positioning, and patient comfort. This can help sites correct issues that may impact the quality of the breast imaging services they deliver and help improve quality of care.
"The company believes that the more specific data it provides to the medical professional, the more it contributes to securing an accurate diagnosis for patients, and this is a driving force behind new solution developments that collect a new type of data," said Frost & Sullivan's Research Associate, Svetlana Korosteleva. "Volpara Solutions leverages modern network technologies and supporting IT deployment models. It intends to further expand its analytics capabilities by leveraging wider sets of metrics that enable it to switch to predictive healthcare, the next frontier for the healthcare industry."
