RapidAI, recently announced the launch of Rapid Workflow for pulmonary embolism (PE)- a mobile and web-based app built especially to place hospital teams on the treatment of patients that are diagnosed with pulmonary embolism. The Rapid Workflow for PE will further support quicker team activation to increase PE care and improve patient outcomes.

RapidAI is using machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) techniques to take out the exceptional meaning from medical imaging data and to build tools that can help physicians to enhance patient care.

Don Listwin, CEO of RapidAI, stated, “Rapid Workflow for PE is the next step in our journey to improving patient care. When it comes to acute vascular diseases, time is of the essence. That’s why we’ve created an extensible platform that addresses the specific needs of care teams across vascular and neurovascular conditions, providing these teams with the tools they need to work quickly to save lives.”

Rapid Workflow for PE provides PE care team members to upgrade their PE workflow and to communicate and coordinate the care of the diagnosed PE patients. It also helps teams to streamline team communication, activation alignment, and obtain quick access to preview CTPA images so that they can reduce time to treatment and deliver better patient care.

According to James F. Benenati, MD, chief medical officer at Penumbra, Inc., “Pulmonary embolism can be a life-threatening condition and requires swift action to prevent serious complications. Through our collaboration, we are now able to arm healthcare providers with critical data to make decisions quickly and coordinate care more efficiently. It is exciting to see our shared vision to innovate pulmonary care come to life and further move the PE field forward with this latest advancement.”
