Epiq Celebrates 15 Years in the eDiscovery Managed Services Business with the Launch of Epiq Choice

The new technology offering gives clients unprecedented flexibility in managing projects

NEW YORK, June 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Epiq, a technology-enabled services leader to global corporate legal departments and law firms, announced today the launch of Epiq Choice and a corresponding milestone: celebrating 15 years since pioneering eDiscovery managed services. Senior Vice President of eDiscovery Services, Scott Berger, who won a Lifetime Achievement award at this year’s Leaders in Tech Law Awards during Legalweek NY, led a team that originally conceived of and launched eDiscovery managed services in 2007. Their goal was to take a concept known to other industries and apply it to the legal technology and support industry. It was designed to combat the unpredictability of price, service quality, and technology utilization that was prevalent in legal at the time, and the effort has led to major changes in the way legal does business. Epiq Choice is the next step in that journey of providing flexibility and value to clients.

Epiq Choice is in keeping with Epiq’s reputation as a trailblazer and leading provider in eDiscovery. With it, leaders in corporations and law firms can take advantage of multiple eDiscovery tools in one place with easy access via the Epiq Service Cloud, and with a predictable monthly fee. Epiq Choice provides clients with the existing eDiscovery tools they are accustomed to, along with the ability to explore new technologies, without having to make specific commitments or investments to exact tools and volumes.

“For many of our clients, Epiq Choice is the answer to the unknown,” said Scott Berger. “The tools and technologies within our industry are rapidly evolving, and in some cases, a new tool might be the perfect fit for a specific matter. Epiq Choice allows clients to benefit from our own investments in platforms and training without having to shoulder the risk themselves. Our history and spirit of innovation made us The Leader in eDiscovery Managed ServicesTM, and Epiq Choice is the next evolution in the journey.”

The eDiscovery platforms currently available via Epiq Choice include Epiq Discovery, NUIX, Reveal, Relativity, and RelativityOne. Epiq Choice is fully integrated into the Epiq Service Cloud, which provides a modernized digital experience for working with Epiq, along with centralized and secure single-sign-on capabilities for a law firm or legal department’s entire tech-stack via Epiq Access.

The innovative spirit that drives Epiq’s eDiscovery Managed Services team and has led to its growth was validated earlier this year by the Leaders in Legal Tech Law Awards Lifetime Achievement recognition.

“It is appropriate that the award for Scott came in the same year that Epiq commemorates the 15th anniversary of our managed service offering and launches this exciting new technology,” said Roger Pilc, president and general manager for Epiq’s Legal Solutions business. “Under his leadership, the Epiq team has become dominant in the space, growing from fewer than 20 people to more than 250 professionals dedicated solely to the managed services program, making it the largest and most experienced pool of eDiscovery experts available. The group partners with more than 100 clients and leads the industry in leveraging innovation such as AI model libraries on their behalf. We could not be more proud of all that this team has accomplished.”

Impulse Dynamics Announces First International Implants of the Optimizer Smart Mini System in Italy

MARLTON, N.J., June 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Impulse Dynamics, a commercial-stage medical device company focused on delivering our CCM therapy to people with heart failure, announced that the first implants in Europe for the newly launched Optimizer® Smart Mini device were recently completed in Italy. The company announced the launch of the new technology on April 29, 2022, and the first U.S. implants on May 10, 2022.

Dr. Stefano Guarracini, Head of Cardiology at the Synergo Casa di Cura Pierangeli Hospital in Pescara, Italy, described his experience with CCM therapy and his outlook for the Optimizer Smart Mini system after the first implant. “Starting in 2019, we had the opportunity to implant Optimizer devices in several patients with heart failure. We believe in the technology and consider CCM therapy to be the only option for many patients suffering from heart failure. We are excited now to be affiliated with the first European institution to have implanted the new Optimizer Smart Mini device and look forward to the simple but more advanced patient management experiences during implants and follow-ups going forward.”

Dr. Giovani Bisignani, with the Ospedale di Castrovillari, who completed his first implant almost simultaneously in the southern Italian province of Cosenza, said, “CCM therapy is a powerful weapon against heart failure. The cutting-edge technology of the new Optimizer Smart Mini along with its smaller, physiological shape allowed us to achieve efficient implantation and initiation of CCM therapy in even less time.”

In March 2022, the company announced that its quality management system received certification under the new European Union Medical Device Regulation. We believe that the launch of the Optimizer Smart Mini system is an example of the importance of a global infrastructure to support ongoing technology innovation and access. The new components of the Optimizer Smart Mini system are equally important across international markets, including a rechargeable battery with a 20-year life and new internal technology with improved programming and potential for remote monitoring in a smaller design to make the implant procedure easier for patients and physicians.

“The pace of this international rollout is a reflection of our commitment to delivering innovation that is relevant to patients worldwide,” said Mateusz Zelewski, MD, Impulse Dynamics’ Vice President International, “It is exciting to see how quickly we can increase access to new and better technology that offers hope for more patients living with heart failure.”

The Optimizer Smart Mini delivers CCM therapy, which consists of electric pulses applied to the heart between heartbeats and serves to enhance the performance of cardiac muscular contraction, making the heart work more efficiently without increasing the heart rate or the oxygen consumption of the cardiac muscle. CCM therapy is currently indicated in Europe to reduce hospitalizations and improve physical exercise tolerance, quality of life, and functional status for a large population of patients with systolic heart failure who remain symptomatic despite guideline-directed medical therapy.

To date, CCM therapy has already been used to treat over 7,000 patients worldwide and is available in 44 countries across the globe. The therapy has been studied in almost 2,000 patients and has appeared in more than 100 peer-reviewed journal articles. Ongoing studies are also underway to examine the safety and efficacy of CCM for patients suffering from heart failure with a left ventricular ejection fraction between 40 – 60%.

About Impulse Dynamics

Impulse Dynamics is dedicated to helping healthcare providers enhance the lives of people with heart failure by transforming how the condition is treated. The company is focused on delivering its proprietary CCM therapy, which is delivered by the company’s Optimizer Smart device, the CE-marked, and FDA-approved treatment verified to improve the quality of life for heart failure patients. CCM therapy is a safe, effective, and minimally invasive treatment option for many heart failure patients who otherwise have few effective options available to them.[1] To learn more, visit www.ImpulseDynamics.com, or follow the company on LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook.
