ASCEND Cardiovascular to Showcase Cardiology Telepresence at the Upcoming American College of Cardiology (ACC) Virtual Scientific Session & Expo

LISLE, IL, April 14, 2021 — ASCEND Cardiovascular, a provider of cardiology solutions that create clinical and operational value through workflow innovation, enterprise integration, and clinical knowledge, announces the introduction of Catalyst Live telepresence at the upcoming ACC virtual meeting. Catalyst Live is designed to work with ASCEND’s multi-modality structured reporting and workflow solutions to provide a holistic approach to improving cardiovascular clinical, operational, and financial performance.

Collaboration has always been at the heart of complex decision-making. The Catalyst Live telepresence platform provides an immersive collaboration experience by providing secure audio, video, and medical device image streaming in real time. This enables real-time communication between distributed caregivers in complex interventional, surgical, and training environments. With Catalyst Live you can:

  • Optimize patient outcomes in complex care settings.
  • Unlock the expertise and specialized talent of a multidisciplinary team for your most complex and high-risk patients.
  • Remotely access your interventional, surgical, and ICU experts.
  • Enable more timely and effective collaboration between physicians and sonographers.

Listen to this podcast of our CEO and co-founder Jeff Soble, MD, discussing his vision of cardiovascular telepresence with Paragon Consulting Partners.

In addition, visitors to the ASCEND Cardiovascular booth can learn about ASCEND Analytics, which collects, organizes, and structures tens of thousands of distinct clinical and operational data elements from ASCEND Structured Reporting, medical devices, the EHR, and other third-party systems. ASCEND Analytics provides a rich warehouse of information that can drive evidence-based reporting and optimization to enable:

  • Proactive, evidence-based cardiovascular disease management
  • Rapid and accurate identification of patient cohorts including those who would benefit from targeted procedures (e.g. TAVR, restenosis, disease progression, HFpEF vs. HFrEF, etc.)
  • Automated reporting for quality-based initiatives, cardiovascular registries, and accreditation
  • Access to a rich library of 100+ canned clinical and operational reports–or create your own custom reports and dashboards with simple, interactive data discovery tools
