The production, which is called ‘Healthy Communities, Healthy People’, is a joint venture between ITN Productions and the New NHS Alliance. It was launched at the New NHS Alliance Action Summit on 1st December 2016 at The King’s Fund in London and is introduced by national newsreader Natasha Kaplinsky. It features key industry interviews and news-style reports along with sponsored editorial profiles.
CEO of Creavo Medical Technologies, Steve Parker, said: “We were delighted to be approached by ITN Productions to be involved in this programme and to talk about the ground-breaking technology we’re developing for improving the triage process for patients entering A&E departments with chest pain. Innovation is vital in the NHS and there needs to be a commitment to technology, research and development if we are to secure its future.”
Notes to editors
About Creavo Medical Technologies Ltd
Creavo Medical Technologies Ltd is a UK-based, privately held medical device company that is developing innovative diagnostic techniques. The company was formed in 2014 to bring to market ground-breaking technology developed by Professor Ben Varcoe, Chair of Quantum Information Science at Leeds University. It has facilities in Leeds and Coventry, UK.
Focused on improving front line patient care in acute medical settings, Creavo’s first application of this technology is the VitalScan – a device that meets an urgent clinical need in global cardiology to more accurately ‘rule out’ heart-related problems at point of admission to emergency departments.
VitalScan is a battery-powered, portable medical device that uses advanced quantum principles to measure, display and store electromagnetic fluctuations caused by heart activity. Early indications from smaller sets of clinical trials indicate that the device can accurately and quickly rule out significant ischaemic heart disease with near 100% accuracy through a simple, non-invasive three to five-minute scan at a patient’s bedside.
