Oak Ridge, TN, Nov. 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Daxor Corporation (Nasdaq: DXR), the global leader in blood volume measurement technology, today announces Daxor’s BVA-100 diagnostic will be featured in a MedAxiom Academy webinar - Best Practices for Using Blood Volume Analysis to Reduce Heart Failure LOS, Readmissions, Mortality and Costs on November 17, 2022, at 1pm ET. This live webinar will take a deep dive into the best practices for implementing the innovative diagnostic BVA which has been shown to improve outcomes and reduce the total cost of care in both the inpatient and outpatient settings.
Daxor entered an industry partnership with MedAxiom, an American College of Cardiology company, to amplify awareness and adoption of Daxor’s BVA technology among MedAxiom’s clinical members which includes C-suite executives and decision-makers from leading hospital systems looking to improve quality metrics that BVA technology addresses head-on - readmissions, mortality, and optimal resource use.
The panel of distinguished speakers includes John L. Jefferies, M.D., MPH, University of Tennessee Health Science Center, Memphis, Tennessee, Timothy Manzone, M.D. Former Section Chief Nuclear Medicine, ChristianaCare, Newark, Delaware, and James Kreiner, MHA, Director Cardiovascular Operations, Prisma Richland, Columbia, South Carolina.
MedAxiom, with the support of Daxor, recently completed a project to identify best practices to build a blueprint of how to operationalize BVA through a care pathway that focuses on everything from patient selection to monitoring, and operationally from strategy to billing. Three customer sites (Prisma Health, Richland Hospital in Columbia, SC, Methodist Hospital in Memphis, TN, and Baptist Hospital in Memphis, TN) who have implemented BVA into clinical practice, participated in the program review and data collection. The webinar panelists will be discussing first-hand how BVA has demonstrated notable improvements in patient outcomes, hospital savings and resource use.
