The American College of Radiology (ACR) Data Science Institute (DSI) just launched its ACR AI-LAB software platform and has already secured a key collaborator: GE Healthcare.
GE Healthcare announced that its Edison AI platform, first started back in November 2018, will integrate with ACR AI-LAB, giving ACR members and other industry professionals access to certain Edison-powered AI services.
One of the key features of Edison is that data can be traced throughout the development of an algorithm, which GE Healthcare says “could radically simplify the ACR community’s ability to create compliant AI applications.”
“Edison provides clinicians with an integrated digital platform, combining diverse data sets from across modalities, vendors, healthcare networks and life sciences settings,” Kieran Murphy, president and CEO of GE Healthcare, said in a prepared statement. “Algorithms built on Edison by our ACR colleagues will include the latest data processing technologies to enable clinicians to make faster, more informed decisions to improve patient outcomes.”
“ACR has been collaborating with industry, government and others throughout healthcare to promote a thriving AI ecosystem targeted towards patient and clinician needs,” Keith Dreyer, DO, PhD, ACR DSI chief science officer, said in the same statement. “Standards, clinical pathways, education and tools are all part of harnessing the potential of AI, and ACR AI-LAB is an important step in that journey. ACR welcomes GE Healthcare’s announcement to integrate with ACR AI-LAB, furthering our mutual goals of improved patient outcomes.”
