Patients financial liability in paying for healthcare services isalmost unrecognizable from that prior to the early 2000s, yet many organizations, including clinical laboratories, have struggled to modernize their collection practices in turn. As a result of this mismatch, labs risk not just losing out on uncollected revenue, but also wasting time and resources on futile or minimally effective back-end collection efforts. Reversing the problem is possible, however, by implementing the right best practices and revenue cycle management technologies. In particular, maximizing patient access early in the revenue cycle can
help patients manage their financial responsibility and preempt many unnecessary denials, payment delays, and uncollected balances.

Exo® Acquires Medo AI to Make Medical Imaging as Easy as Snapping a Smartphone Photo

Exo | July 27, 2022

Exo a pioneering health information and medical devices company, announced that it is acquiring Medo, a Canadian developer of artificial intelligence (AI) technology, to make ultrasound imaging faster and simpler to use. By integrating Medo’s proprietary Sweep AI™ technology into its ultrasound platform, Exo will make ultrasound imaging more accessible to a wider range of caregivers. Ultrasound imaging is complex and requires specialized education and training. This limits the number of caregivers who can use point-of-care ultrasound to significantly improve patient care. Medo’s unique ultrasound AI technology radically lowers the expertise required to diagnose common and critical conditions through automated image acquisition and interpretation, allowing non-experts to conduct high-quality exams quickly and accurately. Medo’s two FDA-cleared AI algorithms, with more in development, combined with access to an extensive library of millions of ultrasound images and longitudinal health data bring a unique opportunity to speed point-of-care ultrasound adoption across the healthcare system — dramatically expanding early disease detection and accelerating the path to treatment. Medo also has strong partnerships with health systems worldwide, including top healthcare institutions in Asia and Canada, enabling global clinical validation and adoption. “This acquisition is about bringing unprecedented ease of use to ultrasound imaging — allowing caregivers to easily obtain and interpret ultrasound images,” said Sandeep Akkaraju, CEO and Founder of Exo. “Medo has built a robust AI pipeline to go from acquiring medical images to FDA-cleared software. We are excited about joining forces with an innovative team that shares our vision of taking medical imaging everywhere.” "Exo’s powerful hardware and workflow technologies and Medo’s AI will dramatically reduce the challenges that have long held back the widespread adoption of point-of-care ultrasound. The ease of imaging and immediacy of diagnostic information we provide will radically transform medical care, creating a world where caregivers can image the body as easily as snapping a photo on a smartphone.” Dornoosh Zonoobi, CEO of Medo Exo recently launched Exo Works™, an intuitive point-of-care ultrasound workflow solution that streamlines documentation, billing, and quality assurance all from one platform, and will be commercializing a handheld ultrasound device that uses radically new technology to deliver powerful imaging at a fraction of the cost of a cart-based system. About Exo Exo is a health information and devices company. Exo believes everyone around the world should have access to high-quality, affordable and easy-to-use medical imaging. The company is on a mission to modernize medical imaging through its high-performance ultrasound platform and artificial intelligence. Exo’s goal is to enable healthcare professionals to make critical, real-time decisions that ultimately improve patient outcomes. This press release contains forward-looking statements regarding Exo’s future expectations, plans and prospects and are based on Exo’s current expectations and speak only as of the date hereof. Exo disclaims any intention or responsibility for updating or revising any forward-looking statements contained in this press release in the event of new information, future developments or otherwise.
