BOSTON, MA & ANN ARBOR, MI - September 9, 2021 -- Etiometry, a leader in clinical decision-support software for critical care, today jointly announced a new collaboration with Terumo Cardiovascular, a global leader in cardiovascular surgery technologies and subsidiary of Japan-based Terumo Corporation (TSE: 4543). The partnership will bring advanced clinical decision support to adult cardiac surgery patients during surgery and their post-surgery recovery. Etiometry's platform helps clinicians to better manage patient data and provides actionable information in intensive care settings. Pairing this solution with Terumo's cardiac surgical devices will bring deeper understanding and enhanced perioperative management of a patient's condition.
With roots in the cardiac intensive care environment, Etiometry brings deep experience in managing data crucial for decision-making at the bedside. Powered by model-based, personalized risk analytics and FDA-cleared indices, Etiometry's platform collects data that indicates the likelihood a patient will experience an adverse medical event. The platform can automate and deploy Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) protocols for the management of cardiac surgical patients throughout their hospital stay. The increased patient surveillance available with the platform brings improved detection and management of potential complications associated with cardiac surgery.
"Healthcare systems are looking for solutions to improve care coordination and decision making while reducing the overall cost of care. Our collaboration with Etiometry addresses these challenges by developing a digital solution that combines Clinical Workflow with Clinical Decision Support for the acute care hospital setting," said Robert DeRyke, President and CEO of Terumo Cardiovascular. "The Etiometry data and analytics platform provides clinicians with insights that can help improve recovery and overall quality of care for cardiac surgery patients."
Terumo Cardiovascular has a wide range of products for cardiac and vascular procedures, offering a full line of perfusion products, endoscopic vessel harvesting products, and surgical stabilization products. The company's products support cardiac surgery teams performing lifesaving procedures globally.
"Expanding our technologies and partnering with Terumo allows for our clinical-decision support tools to be utilized across the spectrum of a patient's hospital stay," said Shane Cooke, CEO of Etiometry. "Having a more holistic view of critical data as a patient moves from the operating room to the ICU is imperative to improving outcomes for these complex clinical circumstances. The collaboration of our organizations will bring this opportunity to many more patients for improved and more informed bedside decisions."
Founded in 2010, Etiometry is the leader in clinical decision-support software designed to help clinicians in the intensive care setting make data-based decisions regarding their patients' care and treatment.
