• Faster and smarter diagnosis of X-ray and CT scan data made possible with Qure.ai’s technology
MUMBAI, May 22, 2018 : Qure.ai, a healthcare AI provider, today announced that it has partnered with Teleradiology Solutions (TRS), a global pioneer in remote radiology interpretation and telehealth, and Telerad Tech (T2), a global health IT company and AI-enabled RIS-PACS provider, to enable smarter and faster diagnoses of X-ray and CT scan data, and reduce costs.
Through this partnership, Qure.ai’s chest X-ray technology will be integrated with Telerad Tech’s proprietary RIS PACS platform – RADSpa that TRS uses to provide teleradiology services globally.
“At Qure.ai, we are expanding the reach of our AI algorithms to help medical professionals deliver better outcomes to their patients,” said Prashant Warier, Co-Founder and CEO, Qure.ai. “TRS and Telerad Tech are pioneers in their respective domains, and we are excited about the impact this partnership will have on the millions of patients’ lives they touch.”
TRS has reported scans for over five million patients since inception in 2002, and currently caters to the requirements of 150 hospitals and healthcare centers in more than 20 countries, including the United States, Singapore, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda, Maldives and India. Telerad Tech’s RADSpa platform is deployed in 24 countries and has processed more than 20 million studies and billions of images. RADSpa is FDA approved and CE certified.
TRS’s clinical expertise and Telerad Tech’s RADSpa platform consolidates radiology report information from diverse sources so radiologists can review these reports from anywhere and anytime. By integrating Qure.ai’s algorithms that automatically generate abnormality reports from X-rays and CT scans, radiologists and hospitals using RADspa will now have cutting-edge algorithms at their disposal to help prioritize care, make smarter and faster diagnoses, and reduce costs. This integration is expected to go live in the next four months in several Indian states where TRS provides teleradiology services.
“Making sure that doctors and hospitals have the necessary and highest quality information has to be the topmost priority,” said Dr Arjun Kalyanpur, CEO Teleradiology Solutions. “Diseases that are of public health importance worldwide such as tuberculosis, are within our focus of interest with a goal of providing high-quality diagnostics to facilitate early detection. Qure.ai, TRS and T2 have a shared vision when it comes to achieving this goal, and we strongly believe this will be highly beneficial for doctors, hospitals and patients alike.”
Qure.ai’s chest X-ray solution can automatically screen for abnormal chest X-rays and tuberculosis. Qure.ai’s automated reads can have a substantial impact on the screening protocol for tuberculosis globally.
“Qure.ai’s chest X-ray solution helps in early identification of probable TB cases and helps doctors in fast-tracking of TB patients for confirmatory diagnosis. It will act as a force multiplier for early and fast detection,” says Dr. Shibu Vijayan, Director at PATH India, an NGO that has been working to improve TB outcomes in India for years. Founded in 2016, Qure.ai is funded by Fractal Analytics, a global leader in artificial intelligence and analytics that powers decision-making in Fortune 500 companies.
