June 20, 2023
SANTA CLARA, Calif. – June 20, 2023 – Exo (pronounced “echo”), a pioneering medical imaging software and devices company, is partnering with Sana Kliniken AG, the leading integrated healthcare provider in the German-speaking region with over 120 facilities (including various outpatient medical centers and 44 hospitals), to bring its high-performance handheld ultrasound platform and artificial intelligence to more medical staff to enable real-time decisions that improve patient outcomes, streamline workflow inefficiencies, and lower costs.
Exo’s point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) technology will be evaluated and deployed in pilot projects at two Sana clinics this summer, starting in the emergency medicine, critical care, and cardiac departments.
“Our two clinics are the first in Germany to use Exo’s innovative solutions," said Dr. Jens Schick, Chief Operating Officer of Sana Kliniken AG. "Our specialists should be able to make decisions about ultrasound diagnostics in real time and treat patients more quickly, especially in critical situations."
Exo’s complete POCUS solution includes its upcoming high-performance handheld ultrasound device that delivers powerful imaging at a fraction of the cost of cart-based systems; Exo Works™, an intuitive ultrasound workflow solution that streamlines documentation and quality assurance all in one platform; and artificial intelligence and education to make ultrasound simpler, bolstering adoption with new users.
"Exo’s partnership with Sana Kliniken AG is another step toward fulfilling our mission of bringing powerful medical imaging to the hands of every caregiver," said Sandeep Akkaraju, Co-founder and CEO of Exo. “With Sana’s large patient population, diverse set of caregivers, and innovative mindset, we will transform how patient care is delivered across Germany.”
