March 16, 2009 - LUMEDX Corp. and Mennen Medical said today they signed a strategic partnership agreement to provide a total, integrated cath lab data solution and seamless stream of hemodynamic cardiovascular patient data to their customers.
LUMEDX is a cardiovascular information system and PACS provider serving more than 500 hospitals worldwide. With a presence in more than 50 countries worldwide, Mennen Medical is a provider of patient monitoring, hemodynamic monitoring systems and electrophysiology recording systems.
The agreement is part of both companies' desire to complement their individual product lines to provide their mutual customers a consolidated cath lab solution. Combining the cutting-edge CVIS and PACS software modalities of LUMEDX with Mennen Medical's full suite of hardware products for the cath lab, including its new state-of-the-art hemodynamic system - the Horizon XVu, its patient monitoring and its EP recording systems into one integrated system.
The companies said the partnership will help heart centers to perform cath lab procedures, using an efficient and flexible workflow and continuous clinical patient data from the holding area, throughout the procedure room and into the recovery room.
Mennen Medical's new XVu System is embedded with a modern interface and analysis system. Combined with user-friendly windows and an intuitive graphic interface, the system enables various layouts to suit both cardiac and peripheral angiography procedures, and includes a pediatric package.
Mennen Medical’s proprietary front-end vital signs acquisition unit, the CFE, with its small size, allows it to be rail-mounted on the procedure table for maximum space utilization and comfort. The company said it is designed to operate under the demanding workload conditions that exist in both the cardiac and peripheral angiography environments.
The LUMEDX CardioStar Cardiovascular Information System (CVIS) provides a complete data and image management environment for cardiology, cardiac surgery and vascular medicine. Built around the Apollo Advance clinical data repository, the CardioStar application suite offers physician reporting, image archiving, scheduling, inventory control, charge capture and data analytics. In addition, the company's new HealthView Network provides a community-wide information infrastructure, allowing physicians to access the complete cardiovascular hospitalization record in home or office from any internet-connected computing device.
