Terumo Cardiovascular Group, an Ann Arbor-based provider of cardiovascular surgery technologies, and Ohio health care software company Talis Clinical have released their new ACG-Perfusion and ACG-RemoteView systems for sale in North America.
ACG-Perfusion is used in the operating room and automatically collects all relevant circulatory system data at the point of care. This allows the surgical team to follow hospital-specific, checklist-driven protocols and safe best practices that are easily observed and documented in patient care. ACG-Rx — a technology embedded into ACG-Perfusion — allows the team to review critical parameters and set patient-specific clinical targets to optimize medicine delivery.
ACG-RemoteView is designed for use outside the operating room. It delivers clinical and operational data to the entire critical care team. For those in supervisory roles, mobile technology makes it possible to view key metrics in real-time wherever they are, while smart notifications alert them to issues that may require immediate attention.
“Despite enormous investments in technology, healthcare teams often operate in silos — what we refer to as a ‘disconnected state,’” says Gary Colister, founder and president of Talis Clinical. “Talis’ powerful ACG System optimizes the clinical workflow to center care around the patient, eliminating silos in the cardiovascular operating room and intensive care unit.”
Robert DeRyke, president and CEO of Terumo Cardiovascular Group, says, “Technology is revolutionizing healthcare. The Talis ACG system goes beyond data management to provide smart, actionable clinical insights. It connects clinicians with data that can help them quickly assess situations and make smarter decisions.”
Terumo and Talis have future plans to expand distribution of the systems globally, as well as develop a unique application for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (heart lung machine) management.
