BERLIN and NEW YORK, Jan. 24, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- tenacio, whose mission is to improve clinical outcomes for cardiovascular patients and to reduce healthcare costs, announced its OptiCor patient management platform is now commercially available in the US following a completed review by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common heart rhythm disorder, affecting one out of three individuals during their lifetime. It can result in strokes, hospitalizations, and pre-mature death. Registries showed that 40% of these patients are not optimally treated. OptiCor™ is a patient management platform to address this unmet need through clinically meaningful prediction of events such that patients and providers can make more informed collective decisions about disease management. It has demonstrated its potential for significant reductions in outcome events in a 52,000 patient in-silico study1.
"Still today, many patients with atrial fibrillation are not treated optimally and therefore suffer unnecessarily from strokes and premature deaths. Tools which support physicians in treating their patients according to guidelines are urgently needed," says Professor Christopher B. Granger from Duke University, NC, USA.
"The launch of OptiCor in the US following an FDA review marks an important milestone for tenacio. Using OptiCor is expected to result in better outcomes for cardiovascular patients." says Dr Georg van Husen, M.D., CEO of tenacio.
OptiCor™ is a digital decision support tool with a proprietary risk prediction algorithm combined with curated clinical evidence and guideline-based patient treatment recommendations. It has been designated by the FDA as a Clinical Decision Support Software.
tenacio is digitizing cardiovascular care to improve patient outcomes and reduce healthcare costs by transforming cardiovascular disease management using state-of-the-art technology and leading-edge science to provide dynamic and individualized care for patients.
