Clarius Mobile Health, a provider of high-definition handheld ultrasound systems, and Echo Mind Ai, an operator of tele-sonography (over-read) services, announce a new integrated solution to empower physiotherapists and sports medicine physicians to bring point-of-care ultrasound to their clinics for faster diagnosis and treatment. It is available today via Clarius Marketplace, which provides Clarius members access to solutions designed to streamline ultrasound training, improve workflows, speed diagnoses, and automate reporting.
The Echo Mind Ai solution provides near real-time feedback, guidance, and over-read services to new ultrasound users, while Clarius offers easy-to-use wireless ultrasound systems that are powered by AI, connected to the cloud, and deliver image quality on par with compact systems at a small fraction of the price, representing 85 percent savings.
Clinicians can subscribe to Echo Mind Ai's service, now fully integrated with Clarius Cloud and the Clarius App for iOS and Android. After basic training, clinicians can easily capture ultrasound videos during a patient exam using the Clarius App, send those ultrasound videos directly to Echo Mind Ai, and will usually receive a report from a certified sonographer during the same clinic visit.
Physiotherapist Ren Mendoza, who has been using the service, says: "the results are returned literally in around ten minutes – detailed and insightful! It allows a well-informed evaluation and plan of care for the patient. The training videos and materials are helpful. Overall, I'm pleased so far with the service."
Access to real-time ultrasound imaging is proven to enhance patient care by expediting the right treatment plan and encouraging adherence, resulting in better outcomes, faster recovery, satisfaction, and referrals. Ultrasound imaging is known to reduce reliance on costly MRI scans, which lowers healthcare costs to patients. What's more, increased diagnostic confidence translates into additional revenue for medical practitioners through streamlined and efficient diagnostic procedures. Documentation from expert sonographers also reduces potential liability.
