Company Received Funding from NIH to Accelerate New Clinical Decision Support Software For Use With Daxor’s Blood Volume Analyzer for Heart Failure Treatment
Oak Ridge, TN, July 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Daxor Corporation (Nasdaq: DXR), the global leader in blood volume measurement technology, announces today that it participated in the National Institute of Health (NIH) funded Innovation Corps (I-Corps™)program to accelerate commercialization of Daxor’s clinical decision support software (CDSS) to guide fluid management in acute decompensated heart failure.
The I-Corpsprogramis a highly-selective immersive, entrepreneurial training program open only to actively-funded NIH grant awardees. The program prepares businesses to accelerate the economic and societal benefits of NIH-funded projects that are ready to move toward commercialization. Participation in this program was funded by the NIH as a NIH Administrative Supplement to Daxor’s ongoing NHLBI SBIR grant and disbursed additional funds to the company as well to support its participation in the program.
“We believe clinicians and hospitals will benefit from our CDSS for insights and guidance to reduce mortality, readmissions, and length of stay for heart failure patients,” said Michael Feldschuh, President and CEO of Daxor. “Our proprietary and patented CDSS pairing with our blood volume diagnostic will drive substantial increase in use of blood volume analysis while improving outcomes and reducing customer costs.”
“Participating in the I-Corps program far exceeded our expectations and the learnings are extremely beneficial in accelerating the commercial rollout of our new software,” said Shawn Urban, Daxor Senior Software Engineer. “It was a great honor to be selected for this elite course and the interaction with the I-Corps staff and other participants was highly valuable.”
