Honored for excellence in innovation in cardiovascular & ophthalmic innovations

SAN FRANCISCO, April 19, 2024–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Viz.ai, the leader in AI-powered disease detection and intelligent care coordination, today announced that it has been named an Edison Award Winner in the 2024 Edison Awards, for the second year in a row. Viz PE with right ventricle/left ventricle ratio (RV/LV), the company’s AI software solution designed to detect and triage pulmonary embolism (PE) and right heart strain, was recognized in the Cardiovascular & Ophthalmic Innovations category. The prestigious Edison Awards, named after the American inventor Thomas Alva Edison, honor excellence in new product and service development, marketing, design and innovation.

“We are honored to win our second Edison Award for innovation,” said Dr. Chris Mansi, CEO and co-founder of Viz.ai. “When we started Viz.ai, we had a vision that by using artificial intelligence, we could help healthcare systems work smarter and faster, improving patient outcomes and ultimately saving lives. Every year in the United States, pulmonary embolism affects around 900,000 patients.1 The recognition of Viz PE, which has the potential to deliver faster and optimal care for patients with pulmonary embolism, validates our efforts to make this vision a reality.”

Viz PE with automated RV/LV ratio measurement became an FDA-cleared AI-powered solution for the detection of suspected PE and assessment of right heart strain in 2022, in partnership with Avicenna.AI. PE is a serious condition, with untreated acute cases having a mortality rate as high as 30% within one month of diagnosis. Timely detection and triage by a multidisciplinary Pulmonary Embolism Response Team (PERT) are critical for patients. Recent data shows that the Viz PE solution combined with PERT activation significantly improved time to assessment and time to anticoagulation with a 74% reduction in in-hospital mortality risk.2

All nominations are reviewed by the Edison Awards’ Steering Committee and an executive judging body. The panel is composed of more than 2,000 senior business executives and academics from the fields of product development, design, engineering, science, marketing and education, as well as past winners.

Winners were announced at the Edison Awards Gala on April 18, 2024 in Fort Myers, FL.
