xWave and Qure.ai announce strategic collaboration
Medical AI and Clinical Decision Support system to work in synergy to guide overworked radiology teams order and report on the right diagnostic test, first time.
Qure.ai, a leading provider of medical artificial intelligence (AI) solutions and xWave Technologies, which has developed a cloud-based Clinical Decision Support (CDS) system for radiology referrals, have today announced a strategic partnership.
The collaboration will focus on enhancing market access, product co-development and integration in order to identify opportunities to deliver advanced healthcare solutions globally that address critical healthcare challenges.
Darren Stephens, Senior Vice-President & Commercial Head UK and Europe, Qure.ai states, “Together, Qure and xWave can create patient-centric efficiencies in the radiology pathway. By dovetailing clinical decision support with AI in imaging, clinicians will be further supported. Patients will gain quicker results and imaging departments will see reduced demand for unnecessary diagnostic appointments. This will help to slow the growth of waiting lists, particularly in the NHS. Ordering the right test, first time, along with the efficiency gains of AI, will provide hospitals with powerful support when looking ahead to winter healthcare pressures.”
Mitchell O’Gorman, Chief Executive Officer, xWave Technologies states, “When we started xWave in 2020, one of the first organisations that we reached out to was Qure.ai. We were struck by the brilliance of its AI technology, the impact it was already delivering across the world and the clear fit between its offering and ours. The xWave team is now looking forward to working closely with Qure.ai to co-develop innovative diagnostic solutions that aim to solve global health problems at scale.”
Qure.ai, headquartered in India with offices in London and New York, is one of the world’s most deployed medical AI companies, present in over 70 countries having grown in scale and size over seven years. Its certified medical imaging AI solutions for neurocritical trauma or stroke CTs; musculoskeletal x-ray fracture detection; and chest x-ray/CT for detection of lung cancer, TB or heart failure are used in collaboration with over 25 NHS Trusts and Health Boards in the UK.
xWave’s Clinical Decision Support (CDS) system has been developed in partnership with the European Society of Radiology (iGuide) and the Royal College of Radiologists (iRefer). The CDS system expertly guides clinical referrers to order the best test for patients, ensuring patients get an early diagnosis, tackles radiology waiting lists and reduces clinician burnout. xWave Technologies, an Irish health technology company, is headquartered at NovaUCD in Dublin.
