The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted De Novo approval for Viz.ai’s hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) artificial intelligence (AI) detection algorithm, Viz HCM module.
Bristol Myers Squibb provided financial backing for the algorithm’s implementation through a multi-year agreement announced in March this year.
By leveraging Viz HCM, which is incorporated into the Viz.ai platform, physicians can identify more individuals with suspected HCM by tapping AI and triaging them for diagnosis and further analysis.
To detect suspected HCM cases and notify cardiologists and care teams through the Viz mobile application, the Viz HCM module automatically reviews routine electrocardiograms (ECGs) from across a health system.
Later, medical professionals can examine the patient’s ECG, arrange a follow-up echocardiogram for diagnosis and utilise the Viz Echo Viewer to assess images and obtain echocardiogram reports.
The HCM module stands as one of 12 FDA-approved AI algorithms on the enterprise-wide, clinically validated Viz.ai Platform, according to the company.
