The Challenge

Point of care ultrasound (PoCUS) in the emergency department is one of the most important tools available to an emergency physician in diagnosing and treating patients effectively. However, ultrasound is a unique imaging modality, and the quality of the captured image is highly dependent on the user’s expertise and skills of maneuvering the probe on the patient’s body.

Additionally, even with training, often new PoCUS users lack mentorship, supervision, and daily practice, making the adoption of PoCUS slow, and resulting in potential misdiagnosis, repeated exams, and operational inefficiency.

The Solution

By harnessing the power of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and applying it to point of care
ultrasound devices, UltraSight’s real-time guidance software empowers healthcare
providers to acquire cardiac ultrasound images easily and confidently, regardless of
their level of sonography proficiency, and:

  • Enables faster diagnosis, earlier treatment, and increased patient satisfaction
  • Supports inexperienced users, increases operational efficiency, facilitates shift to staff with less training
  • Drives PoCUS adoption in the emergency department
  • Increases user confidence and utilization
  • Increases number of ultrasound users, as well as volume of billable scans
  • Reduces repeat imaging, increase facility efficiency
