BioSig Executes Agreement with Bellin Health for the Acquisition of PURE EP™ Technology
Leading Midwest healthcare system reports significant cost savings and noise reduction following evaluation of the PURE EP™ System
Medical center signs agreement to acquire the Company’s digital signal processing technology for arrhythmia care
Westport, CT, January 10, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - BioSig Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: BSGM) (“BioSig” or the “Company”) an advanced digital signal processing technology company delivering unprecedented accuracy and precision to intracardiac signal visualization with its proprietary PURE EP™ System, today announced that Bellin Health System in Green Bay, Wisconsin has signed an agreement to acquire the Company’s PURE EP™ System.
The agreement follows a 60-day formal evaluation of the PURE EP™ System at Bellin Health. The hospital reported that the PURE EP™ demonstrated a significant cost savings per case as well as a substantial reduction in noise and signal interference compared to when using the conventional systems only.
The agreement grants Bellin Health full autonomy with respect to its operation of the PURE EP™ System, and BioSig will not be required to provide an on-site clinical account manager following the new system install.
The PURE EP™ System is a combination of hardware and software that enables the real-time acquisition of raw signal data—absent of unnecessary noise or interference—allowing physicians to make informed clinical decisions based on clear and precise data. With the heightened visualization of active signals, the PURE EP™ System is facilitating personalized patient care and innovations in the field of electrophysiology.
“Bellin has observed, first-hand, that clear cardiac signals provide more information that can impact procedural efficiency without driving up procedural costs,” commented Gray Fleming, Chief Commercial Officer, BioSig Technologies. “The terms of this agreement represent a new milestone for the PURE EP™ System—expanding the accessibility and automaticity of our novel digital signal processing technology.”
Bellin Health recently announced plans to combine operations with Gundersen Health System, a physician-led, nonprofit, integrated healthcare network headquartered in La Crosse, Wisconsin. The hospital serves 22 counties in western Wisconsin, southeastern Minnesota, and northeast Iowa. The merger allows the health systems to offer access to more resources and a broader network of top-tier clinical services, shared provider expertise, state-of-the-art technology and digital healthcare tools that bring virtual care options into homes and workplaces.1
