New healthcare startup MedyMatch Technology, which specializes in using both cognitive analytics and artificial intelligence, has announced the addition of Gene Saragnese as its chairman and CEO. Saragnese previously worked as the CEO of Philips Imaging Systems, a division of Philips Healthcare.
"I am thrilled to be joining the Company in this capacity and at this time in its history," Saragnese said in a prepared statement. "MedyMatch's unique ability to deliver better clinical care at lower cost is exceptionally positioned in the industry, and our technology, artificial intelligence based image classification, will provide physicians with the deep contextual patient insights they need to make the right assessment in challenging acute care settings, when every minute is critical."
In addition, MedyMatch also announced it is opening an office in Boston, which will be the company’s first in the U.S. Its global headquarters are located in Tel Aviv, Israel.
MedyMatch also used the announcement to officially share its goal of improving the performance of real-time support tools in healthcare.
