SCOUTCare™ Honored with Prestigious Aster Awards for Healthcare Communications
Cianna Medical Continues to Expand Use of Innovative SAVI SCOUT® Technology and Supports Hospitals’ Mission to Become Wire-free Providers
ALISO VIEJO, Calif., May 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cianna Medical, Inc., the world leader in wire-free breast localization, announced that its SCOUTCare program was honored with a Silver and Bronze Aster Award for the program and consumer awareness campaign, respectively.
The SCOUTCare program is designed to support a facility’s mission of “moving beyond wires” through the adoption of the SCOUT® Wire-Free Radar Breast Localization System to mark a breast biopsy or lumpectomy site. The SCOUT system helps to reduce operating room costs, improve operational efficiency and reduce stress for women who are going through one of the most difficult times in their life. SCOUTCare provides multi-modality training for radiologists, surgeons and allied health professionals, including customized implementation planning, certification of clinical team and facility, coding and reimbursement guidance as well as a patient assistance program. The program also shares best practices from hospitals across the country that have successfully implemented their wire-free program.
The Aster Awards, one of the largest, most respected national competitions of its kind, is hosted by Marketing Healthcare Today Magazine and Creative Images, Inc. This elite program has recognized outstanding healthcare professionals for excellence in their advertising/marketing efforts for over 17 years.
“We are honored to have received these awards. Our field team works hard to bring healthcare professionals the technology and tools they need to help to ease the burden of breast cancer for women and their families,” said Jill Anderson, President and CEO of Cianna Medical. “With SCOUTCare, we are able to align breast care programs across the U.S that are integrating their compassion for patients with our SCOUT technology.”
SCOUT is the only wire-free breast localization system that uses radar to mark a lumpectomy or biopsy site, with no significant artifacts on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies. SCOUT is non-radioactive and non-magnetic, making it easy to use and provides unparalleled precision and accuracy. Using SCOUT, surgeons can precisely target the affected tissue using its 360˚ detection capability to pinpoint its location within ±1mm, which can mean more successful surgeries, optimized breast conservation strategies and enhanced outcomes for women.
The SCOUT System has been proven in over 33,000 procedures at 260 hospitals in the U.S. and has been shown to decrease patient discomfort, improve patient satisfaction, keep OR schedules on time by decoupling radiology and surgery schedules, reduce OR costs and increase operational efficiency.
