About Frenel Solutions


For Augustin Fresnel: 1788-1827

Frenel solutions was founded in 2005 by William O’Keefe, RVT and Brian Hembling, BS, RVT. O’Keefe and Hembling have over 40 years of experience in the vascular field and more than 30 years of database development between them. They were involved with the development of CVdBase (the program that is the basis for Focus ) and went on to purchase CVdBase from Savant Data Systems in order to continue clinical development of this Vascular Lab Management software.

CVdBase had a long history in it’s own right, having been in clinical use for over 20 years. CVdBase was first developed in a private vascular surgery office in the 80’s and 90’. In the late 90’s it was released commercially and sold under ownership of Savant Data Systems. This Product is now know as Focus and owned by Frenel Solutions.

Over the last 7 years our clinical partners, a multidisciplinary team of vascular sonographers, lab directors, hospital administrators, vascular surgeons, cardiologists, radiologists and neurologists, have helped us refine this comprehensive tool. The Focus system has been proven in various vascular lab settings while undergoing every day use in government and private hospitals, physician owned clinics and independent laboratories. In every install, the Focus system has proven to elevate the standard of care.

Frenel solutions is owned and operated by people who have spent their careers in your field. We understand the quality, productivity, business management, research and connectivity challenges that face us specifically in the vascular field. Our understanding of vascular lab complexities enabled us to continue to innovate and better develop solutions for your lab. As a result, you gain greater control, greater profits, and a great deal more time and understanding of the processes in your laboratory. The best feature of this product is the end result, the empowerment to improve the quality of patient care.

Our wide range of clinical experience has also allowed us to create Focus to be the most flexible solution for you. Working in vascular labs that participate in research, we have learned the importance of flexible data management. Teaching new students and mature technologists, all with varied computer experience, has allowed us to make this product accessible to a large range of users. Working with hospital administration in private and government hospitals really helped us develop a precise productivity reporting system. Helping several labs through the ICAVL and ICAEL accreditation process has really honed our tool set for gathering the crucial information to get you through this challenging process.

This real world experience has added to our knowledge and allowed us to make this product accessible to a broad range of laboratory settings.
