BURLINGTON, Mass. And CHICAGO, Nov. 29, 2021 / PRNewswire / – At the 107th Scientific and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), Nuance® Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN) launched today the Nuance Precision Imaging Network ™, an AI-based cloud platform that delivers patient-specific data and information from diagnostic imaging to existing clinical and administrative workflows in the healthcare ecosystem. Leveraging the scale of Nuance’s PowerScribe and PowerShare diagnostic imaging solutions, the Nuance Precision Imaging Network connects imaging stakeholders and facilitates the use of AI to inform diagnostics and therapies precision, increase physician efficiency and reduce overall health care costs.
The importance of diagnostic imaging is reflected in a study published by the Journal of the American Medical Association, which found that over 80% of all hospital and healthcare system visits included at least one imaging study. As a result, hospitals and healthcare systems today spend approximately $ 65 billion annually on diagnostic imaging for more than 23,000 different conditions. By enabling the secure and efficient sharing of AI-enhanced diagnostic imaging information, the Nuance Precision Imaging Network increases clinical decision-making, facilitates earlier detection and treatment of disease when the chances of obtaining positive patient outcomes are greater, and improves interpretation and workflow efficiency for a wide range of physicians.
“Radiology and other diagnostic imaging stakeholders are looking for enterprise-wide platforms that allow us to bridge medical information silos and expand cloud access to imaging data to improve patient care, physician efficiency and costs. The Nuance Precision Imaging Network is a systematic platform that integrates the best diagnostic models based on AI, task automation, clinical decision support and healthcare team centered communication on the patient within familiar radiology and other clinical workflows.Using Nuance’s cloud-based radiology solutions, the network helps radiologists and other physicians manage growing workloads while enabling them to apply the full potential of diagnostic imaging in patient care, ”said Dr. Ryan Lee, chair of the radiology department of the Einstein Healthcare Network.
“Nuance recognizes that almost every patient story begins with a diagnostic picture. The Nuance Precision Imaging Network is the only national patient-centric diagnostic imaging platform that seamlessly delivers AI-generated patient information across clinical and administrative workflows at across vendor, payer, and life science use cases, ”said Peter Durlach, chief strategy officer, Nuance. “By leveraging Nuance’s unmatched scale of diagnostic imaging accumulated over the past 25 years and a robust partner ecosystem, the Nuance Precision Imaging Network establishes a common cloud-based framework that enables all stakeholders to apply rapid advances in AI to improve clinical outcomes, financial performance and efficiency throughout the patient journey, from screening to follow-up. “
The Nuance Precision Imaging Network maximizes the effectiveness, efficiency and value of diagnostic imaging by delivering meaningful, AI-generated, patient-centric data and information to all major imaging stakeholders, notably :
- Radiologists, which can improve radiology efficiency and increase interpretation by automating repetitive and mundane tasks, receiving AI-powered worklist prioritization, integrated clinical decision support, and communication tools in existing workflows with reliable and familiar solutions.
- Healthcare provider organizations, which can apply additional AI-generated information from diagnostic imaging to support earlier diagnosis, inform treatment options and planning, and increase clinical decision making.
- Health plans and self-insured employers, which can improve payer-provider collaboration to improve quality and costs and improve coordination of care using shared clinical data to support better patient outcomes.
- Life science companies, which can inform the use of precision therapies and companion diagnostics by qualifying eligible patients for life-enhancing treatment options and clinical trials faster and more efficiently across the country.
The Nuance Precision Imaging Network leverages the best AI models from a range of partners and seamlessly integrates with Image Archive Communication Systems (PACS), Vendor Neutral Archive ( VNA) and existing electronic health records (EHRs) to maximize the value of existing systems. health IT infrastructure. It is available to customers as a preview at the RSNA 2021 Annual Meeting from November 28 to December 2, 2021. Those interested in learning more about the Precision Imaging Network should visit booth # 3300 or contact us.
