ImaCor partners with a world-class group of leaders, united by the common goal of revolutionizing patient care and optimizing costs. We share a commitment to making Advanced Hemodynamic Management with hTEE (hemodynamic TEE) accessible to critical care patients, their families, clinicians, and hospital administrators around the world. Every day, clinicians are advancing the quality of patient care by leveraging hTEE. With this cost-efficient tool at their fingertips, they are able to optimize cardiac performance and achieve the best-possible outcomes for their patients, all while maximizing the resources at hand and minimizing length-of-stay.
Our emphasis on continued innovation ensures that hTEE remains on the cutting-edge of technological advancements. Our team of engineers continues to develop new features and fine-tune existing capabilities of our imaging platforms in order to deliver a superior user experience and provide optimal integration into workflow.
Ultimately, we are in the business of saving lives. A 2013 multicenter study (Vieillard-Baron et al, Intensive Care Medicine) was recently named "Best Study of the Year" in the field of hemodynamic monitoring. This landmark paper demonstrated that hemodynamic management with hTEE had a direct therapeutic impact in 66% of the patients studied. In 2013 alone, a number of other peer-reviewed studies highlighted the direct impact of hTEE in guiding therapies and optimizing patient outcomes.
Our vision, that hTEE-guided hemodynamic management will become the gold standard in critical care, infuses every move we make, whether it is venturing into a new intensive care unit, partnering to develop an economic model for a health system, or supporting innovative research focused on improving patient care.

Stanford Space Initiative Team Tests hTEE in Microgravity
In 2014, we had the honor of supporting a unique project by a group of Stanford University and California Institute of Technology undergraduate students comprising the Stanford Space Initiative Team. These exceptional students chose to study hTEE's functionality and usability in space conditions to explore the possibilities for hemodynamic monitoring in spaceflight missions. hTEE was tested in microgravity through NASA's Reduced Gravity Education Flight Program.
