Ebit has been awarded the ‘2015 European Award for Technology’ by Frost and Sullivan, in recognition of their Suitestensa cardiovascular information system integration platform (CVIS-PACS) designed to integrate workflows in hospital enterprise processes.
According to a press release, Frost & Sullivan’s analysis of the cardiovascular information system (CVIS) market showed Suitestensa to be an innovative and comprehensive IT system. Suitestensa CVIS-PACS is designed to encompass all cardiology specialities and allow diagnostic image acquisition, archiving, distribution and management within healthcare networks. According to Ebit, the platform enables doctors to access and track both current and previous patient reports, images, and test results, which could be helpful in reducing the times and costs involved in the development of a diagnostic plan.
Designed initially for cardiovascular departments, Suitestensa can now share data between hospital departments and hospitals themselves, according to Ebit. The group claims that the platform has a broad compatibility and interoperability of the software and technologies involved, affording multi-departmental approaches for the management of diagnostics for cardiac catheterisation, electrophysiology, echocardiography, electrocardiography, general cardiology, cardiovascular surgery, interventional cardiology and endovascular surgery.
Frost & Sullivan research analyst, Siddharth Saha, says, “Even when Suitestensa expanded into different markets such as Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, China, Germany and parts of Eastern Europe, Ebit continued to offer full technological support for the platform by building and maintaining support facilities in those countries or regions.”
Frost & Sullivan presents this award annually to a company which it perceives has developed a pioneering technology that not only enhances current products, but also enables the development of newer products and applications.
Krishna Srinivasan, global president and managing partner, Frost & Sullivan, notes, “We are pleased to recognise Ebit for its abiding investment and continuous focus in leveraging technology to drive customer value and business impact.”
The Ebit and Esaote team were reportedly very satisfied by this award.
