EL SEGUNDO, Calif. & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Radiology Partners (RP), the leading radiology practice in the U.S., announced today that it has formed a strategic alliance with Aidoc, the leading provider of artificial intelligence (AI) solutions for medical imaging, to offer unparalleled AI capabilities to its hospitals and health systems, and to accelerate the adoption of AI as the standard of care in radiology.
“AI has the potential to unlock enormous value for the entire healthcare ecosystem, and I believe our partnership with Aidoc will turn out to be the tipping point for AI in radiology, a medical specialty that has systemic influence on the overall delivery of patient care,” said Rich Whitney, CEO and Chairman for RP. “RP radiologists interpret nearly one in 10 of all imaging studies conducted in the U.S., and we are fast approaching a world in which AI tools serve as critical skill multipliers for physicians, allowing step-function improvements in patient care and clinical outcomes, and reductions in overall healthcare costs.”
Aidoc’s solutions support and enhance the impact of radiologist diagnostic power helping them expedite patient treatment and improve quality of care by flagging acute anomalies in real time. The company helps radiologists improve efficiencies that lead to a reduction of inpatient length-of-stay and time in the emergency department, which results in better care and lower costs for the patient, payer and health system. Aidoc is already integrated into the clinical workflow at hundreds of sites around the world, notifying radiologists on millions of cases and improving turnaround time by over 30%.

“Health systems are coming to realize that they need an enterprise approach to AI and that it will become impossible to adopt fragmented, niche AI solutions for every subspecialty,” said Elad Walach, CEO and Co-founder of Aidoc. “Over the past four years, we’ve developed the most comprehensive acute AI suite on the market. We doubled the number of products last year and will double the portfolio again this year. A partnership between the clear leader in imaging AI and the dominant player in radiology physician services will accelerate adoption and establish an exciting new standard of care in the radiology field.”
As AI increasingly becomes integrated into the radiologists’ practice, ensuring that the technology accounts for a diverse patient population is critical to providing appropriate care. Aidoc developers were mindful of potential bias risk and trained the platform using the most complex, heterogenous and geographically diverse data available as a means to combat such limitations. The partnership with RP offers the opportunity to develop and continually refine tools across a heterogeneous portfolio of care sites across 30 states, the largest collection of real-world radiology data available in the U.S.
