Spotlight Innovation Inc expands therapeutic focus areas to include refractory glaucoma (29.11.2016)
Spotlight Innovation Inc announced that it has made a strategic investment in Solx, Inc., a Massachusetts-based, privately-held medical device company. Principally backed by MVM Life Science Partners, a leading global life science venture capital firm, Solx develops innovative surgical technologies that treat glaucoma and preserve vision.

Spotlight Innovation Inc. identifies and acquires rights to innovative, proprietary technologies designed to address unmet medical needs, with an emphasis on rare, emerging and neglected diseases. To find and evaluate unique opportunities, we leverage our extensive relationships with leading scientists, academic institutions and other sources. We provide value-added development capability to accelerate development progress. When scientifically significant benchmarks have been achieved, we will endeavor to partner with proven market leaders via sale, out-license or strategic alliance.

Solx's lead product is the SOLX Gold Shunt™, a first-in-class, implantable drainage device designed to reduce elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) associated with refractory glaucoma without creating a bleb. The device provides a pathway for the flow of aqueous humor from the anterior chamber to the suprachoroidal space, utilizing a natural pressure differential within the eye. Approved for use in Canada and Europe, the SOLX Gold Shunt has been tested in a multi-center clinical trial, is investigational and awaiting FDA approval in the U.S.

Mr. Kevin McMahon, President and Chief Executive Officer of Solx, commented, "We are very pleased to have Spotlight Innovation join the great team of investors supporting us on our journey. Their involvement validates our belief that the SOLX Gold Shunt will provide glaucoma surgeons with an important new tool for treating patients challenged by severe glaucoma."

Olympus Awarded an Innovative Technology Designation for Fourth Consecutive Year by Vizient Inc (27.11.2016)
Olympus, a global technology leader in designing and delivering innovative solutions for medical and surgical procedures, among other core businesses, announced that two of its products were awarded Innovative Technology designations by Vizient, Inc., the largest member-driven health care performance improvement company in the country.

The products awarded were the VISERA 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) “Big Screen” surgery video system and the ENDOCUFF VISION® endoscopic device. The coveted designations were based on direct feedback from 1300 onsite clinical experts and healthcare providers who attended the Innovative Technology Exchange at Vizient’s Clinical Connections Summit.

About Olympus’ Two Products Awarded the Vizient Innovative Technology Designation:
VISERA 4K UHD is a state-of-the-art Big Screen surgical video system that delivers 4x the resolution of HD (3840×2160 pixels) with better light and wider color spectrum, helping to better visualize anatomical patterns so that surgeons can operate with increased precision and confidence. The only fully integrated 4K imaging chain available for healthcare, VISERA 4K UHD brings OR personnel closer to the operating field through a 55-inch display of live, magnified anatomical features – providing more visual information to the entire surgical team. It's improved handling of the red spectrum can help better differentiate bleeding from anatomy in as many as 20 million laparoscopic and arthroscopic surgeries per year.

ENDOCUFF VISION® is the second generation, single-use device designed to improve visualization for certain endoscopic procedures such as colonoscopies. Placed on the distal tip of a colonoscope, its unique hinged arms fall flat against the shaft of the scope to reduce slippage during forward advancement. During withdrawal, the arms flare out and stabilize the tip, gently stretching the mucosal surface to allow the physician thorough inspection of the anatomy during the search for polyps.

“We are very pleased to receive this recognition from Vizient. Olympus strives to address the Triple Aim goals of Affordable Care through our innovative technology,” said Todd Usen, President, Olympus Medical Systems Group at Olympus Corporation of the Americas. “Improving quality of care, reducing costs and enhancing patient satisfaction are important goals that can be attained if physician and nurse experience is heeded, and with the careful application of research and development toward meaningful advancements.”

“Due to the number of products and services being released and marketed as ‘innovative’, member hospitals truly value the peer-review system in place at Vizient to help them identify products worth further evaluation at their own facilities,” said Debbie Archer, director of procurement and leader of Vizient’s Innovative Technology program for suppliers. “After a review of the Olympus VISERA 4K UHD system and the ENDOCUFF VISION, Vizient’s members agreed these products offer unique and incremental benefit over other products available on the market today, and recommended them for an Innovative Technology designation.”

These new designations mark Olympus’ fourth consecutive year to have a product recognized by Vizient. Other products receiving Innovative Technology designations include:

2015: QuickClip Pro Endoscopic Clip and PCF-H190DL/I Slim Colonoscope with ScopeGuide
2014: Diego ELITE Multi-debrider, BF-P190 Bronchoscope and 3D versus Robotic Surgery Cost Comparison Calculator
2013: HD 3D Laparoscopic Surgical Video System
These designations will identify the Olympus products within Vizient’s online contract catalog as Innovative Technology. This heightened visibility will encourage further consideration by members accessing these agreements.

GE Healthcare showcases industry-first technologies and digital solutions, focused on improving outc (26.11.2016)
GE Healthcare is launching 25 new products, services and digital solutions at RSNA 2016, 50 percent more than in 2015, as the company focuses on helping the healthcare industry to improve outcomes. The new innovations and partnerships are designed to address some of the industry’s most pressing challenges and will enable better patient experience, improved clinical confidence, and increased productivity.

For the first time ever, mammography exams can literally be in the hand of the patient with a remote control that adjusts breast compression. This new, innovative self-compression feature1 for the new Senographe PristinaTM enables the patient, with the help of a technologist, to set the pressure that feels right for her – helping to reduce discomfort and addressing one of the main concerns women have for avoiding mammography screening.

“We’re committed to improving outcomes for our customers and the industry. Senographe Pristina is a great example of how we are investing in innovation to improve patient experience and therefore reduce the possibility of skipped mammogram screenings,” said John Flannery, president and CEO of GE Healthcare. “We’re excited to launch a wide range of new products, digital and software technologies aimed at improving performance, clinical outcomes and productivity for hospitals and clinicians around the world.”

When it comes to digital and software technologies, GE Healthcare is committed to developing analytics that convert data into insights and action.

To that end, GE Healthcare announces the general availability of the Centricity Imaging Collaboration Suite, a suite of applications that enables distributed care teams to view, manipulate and share images beyond their department and beyond their hospital’s walls. Built on the secure, scalable GE Health Cloud, the solution helps distributed care teams collaborate on patient cases, reduce CD handling costs and time spent preparing for multi-disciplinary meetings, and decrease repeat imaging.

GE Healthcare is announcing several new features and enhancements to Centricity Solutions for Enterprise Imaging. Among the most notable updates is to Universal Viewer, with the development of Integrated Relevant Clinical Content (IRCC). IRCC delivers relevant clinical information including EMR and lab data, radiology reports, patient history and pathology data directly to the radiologist within the existing workflow. With an algorithm that learns as GE Healthcare radiologists provide input, physicians will be able to more quickly reach a confident diagnosis based a more complete picture of the patient’s health.

Within the field of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), GE Healthcare is showcasing an entire line-up of systems built on the SIGNATM platform and focused on improving productivity and outcomes for customers. These systems are powered by SIGNAWorks, a new platform intended to deliver enhanced clinical excellence. A range of Computed Tomography (CT) and PET/CT solutions from unique clinical systems to software and imaging programs that enhance clinical support will also be showcased. DiscoveryTMMI and GSI Xtream on Revolution CT2 are two innovations that will be highlighted at RSNA.

GE Healthcare is also featuring its latest mobile X-ray technology the OptimaTMXR240amx3 with FlashPad HD digital detectors designed to increase flexibility and practicality to conduct an X-ray in challenging clinical environments. In Surgery, GE Healthcare is showing its latest C-arm technology, the OEC EliteTMMiniViewTMC-arm, designed to help remove frustrations and distractions in the operating room. GE Healthcare will also highlight its ultrasound system, LOGIQTM E9 XDclearTM 2.0, which delivers high-quality images across a wide variety of cases, from the routine to the technically challenging, including from head to toe, obese to thin, neonate to geriatric patients.
