November 24, 2015 — Frost & Sullivan presented the 2015 European Award for Technology Leadership to Ebit, the Esaote Group’s healthcare IT company focused on developing and selling RIS/CVIS/PACS software for integrated workflows in hospital enterprise processes. The award recognizes Ebit for Suitestensa CVIS PACS, an advanced cardiovascular information system integration platform.
Based on a Frost & Sullivan recent analysis of the CVIS market, Suitenstensa was acknowledged as a highly innovative and comprehensive IT system. The suite encompasses all cardiology specialties and allows diagnostic image acquisition, archiving, distribution and management within healthcare networks. Its strength — enabling doctors to access and track both current and previous patient reports, images and test results — helps develop a thorough and valid diagnostic plan, while reducing times and costs involved.
Born first within the cardiovascular department, Suitestensa is now an enterprise–wide IT system that shares data and information between hospital departments and even hospitals, also thanks to its aligned archiving server systems. Featuring an equipment vendor-agnostic profile, Suitestensa has a broad compatibility and interoperability of all software, technologies and modalities involved. This creates a multi-departmental approach managing diagnostics from cardiac catheterization, electrophysiology, echocardiography, electrocardiography, general cardiology, cardiovascular surgery, interventional cardiology and endovascular surgery.
“Ebit’s primary commercialization focus has been its home market of Italy, where it currently holds more than 50 percent of the market share,” noted Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Siddharth Saha. “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.”
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to a company that 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, summed up, “Technology-rich companies with strong commercialization strategies benefit from the increased demand for high-quality, technologically innovative products. We are pleased to recognize Ebit for its abiding investment and continuous focus in leveraging technology to drive customer value and business impact.”
