Israeli machine-learning radiology firm Zebra Medical Vision said today it inked a deal with Change Healthcare to produce artificial intelligence solutions for complex radiology reporting environments.
Through the partnership, the companies will combine Change’s radiology solutions and Zebra Medical’s algorithms as they look to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of routine tasks in a radiologists’s workflow.
“For artificial intelligence to be truly valuable, it must be integrated into radiologists’ routine, daily readflow. Pragmatic, artificial intelligence solutions such as the All in One offering from Zebra Medical Vision are essential. We see a strategic fit as Change Healthcare pursues solutions that optimize workflow and access to clinical data for our medical imaging customers,” Change Healthcare radiology & infrastructure GM Ashish Sant said in a prepared statement.
Change Healthcare said it will continue to work with its “forum of clinical and academic leaders” to gain integral insights it sees as inherent in imaging and clinical information to help imaging specialists identify critical conditions more hastily.
“Our team at Zebra Medial Vision is excited to be working with Change Healthcare’s experts. We know that Change Healthcare’s industry-leading enterprise imaging solutions and their deep clinical knowledge combined with our growing artificial intelligence solutions will help bring real benefit to radiologists and their reading practice,” Zebra Medical co-founder & CEO Elad Benjamin said in a press release.
Earlier this month, Zebra said it will upload its radiology algorithms to the Google Cloud as part of the AI1 automated imaging analytics tools offering it announced last month.
