LivaNova Launches

On February 02, 2023, LivaNova PLC, a medical innovation and technology company, has launched an implantable pulse generator (IPG) SenTiva DUO™, useful for VNS Therapy™ of drug-resistant epilepsy.

With a dual-pinned header, it offers similar therapeutic benefits as SenTiva, the company's earlier product, which stimulates a response to the rapid heart rate, which can be a result of seizures, the low heart rate, and similar situations with day and night programming and scheduled programming. It recently received 510(k) clearance from the United States Food and Drug Administration and is now available for purchase in the United States.

Professor and Chief Pediatric Neurology at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, Dr. James Wheless, said, "This new offering enables those VNS Therapy patients with legacy dual-pin systems to have the option to replace their device with SenTiva DUO, delivering the most advanced VNS Therapy treatment without the need for lead revision." He added, "Having access to SenTiva DUO offers patients therapy that can be customized and delivered automatically, providing optimal seizure control and enabling maximum adherence to treatment."

Chief Executive Officer of LivaNova, Damien McDonald, said, "We're proud to offer SenTiva DUO to serve patients who were early adopters of VNS Therapy many years ago. Over time, all VNS Therapy patients must replace their generators as batteries become depleted. Now, our 'pioneer patients' will be able to take advantage of the latest technology with SenTiva DUO and experience the full benefits of VNS Therapy, without the need to replace their dual-pin lead."

CipherHealth and SADA Collaborate to Improve Patient Care Via Looker

CipherHealth | January 06, 2023

CipherHealth, a leader in patient engagement technology and communication solutions, recently teamed up with SADA, an award-winning Google Cloud Partner, to use Google Cloud's Looker to collect socioeconomic data to improve patient care. With this new feature, CipherHealth aims to empower healthcare leaders by enabling them to collect large volumes of data and assist patients and medical professionals at each point of the care journey. Earlier, CipherHealth's platform gave doctors and nurses complete conversational and clinical information about each patient. It worked with SADA, a company that knows how to set up and run Google Cloud's analytics platform Looker, to add self-service analytics to the platform and make it more useful. With the help of Looker Embedded Analytics, CipherHealth has made it easier for its clients to access this data for analysis and visualization at any time during the patient's life. As a result of the partnership, CipherHealth's clients, which include 500 hospitals across the country, will now have access to patient data about social determinants of health (SDOH). Also, they can use in-built analytics to divide patient groups and send personalized messages to each of them separately. With this information, CipherHealth's clients can zero in on a specific patient and find out what kind of treatment they need, along with any special accommodations (like if they have trouble making appointments). CipherHealth is HIPAA-compliant, meaning it may safely analyze and transfer clients' protected health information (PHI) over the internet. The company believes combining SADA with Google Cloud can give its clients a new view of their patient populations. It will also allow the company to make changes to its care delivery that are good for patients. In line with this, SADA said that the integration of Looker from Google Cloud improves the patient experience for CipherHealth and its clients. About CipherHealth CipherHealth is a proven technology solutions partner dedicated to improving patient communication and care. Since 2009, the company has helped build the market for patient engagement by making innovative tools that help providers give excellent care.
