Philips, Nuance to apply AI to imaging workflows
By combining PowerScribe with Philips' AI-powered Illumeo platform, the two vendors seek help health systems improve their radiologists' imaging reports by reducing discrepancies and improving accuracy and standardization. In a partnership they say will help hospitals both improve the productivity of their radiologists and improve patient outcomes, Royal Philips and Nuance Communications will integrate their respective Illumeo and PowerScribe 360 platforms, applying artificial intelligence to radiology reporting. "By accelerating the creation, access and usability of AI tools, the collaboration between Nuance and Philips will improve workflow efficiencies even further by reducing redundant tasks and helping better automate the reporting process," she said. In working together, the two companies will offer radiologists access to various tools – for risk stratification, improved report structure, faster turnaround times – to help clinicians make better decisions about the next steps in the care process, officials say.
