TechOhio: This Ohio Startup Wants to Give Heart Surgeons an Innovative New Resource
How DASI Simulations wants to combat heart disease through their revolutionary tech
Every year, hundreds of thousands of Americans die of heart disease, in spite of hundreds of thousands of patients undergoing surgeries to treat their disease. Heart surgery is a complex and challenging process, and one that isn’t guaranteed to succeed. But Columbus startup DASI Simulations is trying to change that. The company has developed a computational modeling and artificial intelligence system that helps heart doctors plan for structural heart procedures and improve the chances of positive outcomes.
The company knows they have a window of opportunity to maximize their technology’s high ceiling. In addition to receiving their second grant from the Ohio Third Frontier’s Technology Validation and Start-up Fund, the company is working to establish a partnership between The Ohio State University and Georgia Institute of Technology through OSU’s tech transfer office and has partnered with a group of independent sales reps that will be “aggressively taking the DASI technology” to structural heart centers across the country. In the near future, they’re aiming for “six sizable milestones” like FDA approval and more.
But the project isn’t just about running a great business. For its leaders, DASI is about bringing a better quality of care to heart patients and providing better tools for the physicians that need them.
And for Sirset, that mission is even more personal.
In a state known for its world-renowned medical systems and increasing number of medtech startups supported by the State and other entrepreneurial resources, DASI’s team believes their Dublin home is a perfect fit for their bold ambitions.
