Superior Vascular Care and Viz Aortic and Cooper University Health Care – via its AI-powered care coordination platform for advanced disease detection and workflow optimization – is on a mission to close gaps between patients, clinicians, and life-saving treatments.

Here’s the long-story-short of it: To date, more than 1,300 total hospitals currently using are able to connect care teams earlier, thus increasing speeds of diagnoses and optimizing clinical care pathways across health systems for the right specialized patient care, at the right time. was founded in 2016 by Dr. Chris Mansi after he unfortunately lost a patient due to preventable process delays that undermined care teams and cost the patient their life. Per Mansi, such cases point to systemic healthcare issues that must be addressed, and AI is part of making that happen.

“AI can not only change healthcare, making it faster and smarter,” Mansi said, “but it can radically transform it. That’s what we’re here for.”

Enter’s Viz Aortic, aka proven aortic care coordination improved by AI. Viz Aortic – one of several solutions, more of which include Viz Cardio, Trauma, Radiology and Neuro Suites, Viz Aneurysm, Viz LVO/CTOP and Viz Subdural – focuses on the detection and direction of patient care when it comes to the challenges of aortic diseases.’s Viz Aortic is where “advanced AI technology meets superior vascular care” via alerts powered by AI for automatic detections of suspected abdominal aortic aneurysm and aortic dissection, hyper-fast access to imaging within minutes after completing a CT scan, and accelerated treatment decisions for aortic pathologies, all with secure and HIPAA-compliant communications.

Enter news from Cooper University Health Care in Camden, New Jersey. According to a recent hospital news release, Cooper University Health Care is the first hospital system in the U.S. to successfully use Viz Aortic.

Cooper University Health Care was already aware of how’s technologies reduce hospital length of stay (LOS), decrease costs and, most importantly, increase access to care and substantially improve patient outcomes with real-time info for frontline care specialists. So, when applicable instances for Viz Aortic arose, the team at Cooper put it in action.

“We are proud to be the first hospital network in the U.S. to use Viz Aortic in our daily clinical practice,” said Dr. Philip Batista, a vascular and endovascular surgeon at Cooper who led the clinical implementation of the new technology. “This Viz technology will enable us to continue detecting abdominal aortic aneurysms earlier, which can lead to improved surveillance, more thoughtful interventional planning and, ultimately, care that saves lives.”

More voices from Cooper were quick to praise Viz Aortic, as well.

“Our partnership with aligns with our commitment to deliver exceptional patient care by utilizing groundbreaking technological advancements,” said Dr. Snehal Gandhi, Chief Medical Information Officer and Medical Director of Hospital Medicine at Cooper. “Viz software holds immense potential for transforming how we approach patient care in the years to come.”

“Our mission at is to increase patient access to life-saving treatments,” said Jayme Strauss, Chief Clinical Officer at “Viz Aortic, in particular – and its use of AI to automatically search for abdominal aortic aneurysms from computed tomography angiography, and from any scanner in a hospital network – is a powerful tool for physicians when it comes to early diagnosis and life-changing intervention. We’re thrilled to expand this partnership with Cooper University Health Care.”
