Nuance AI Marketplace Accelerates AI Adoption for Radiologists

Nuance Communications' AI Marketplace for Diagnostic Imaging is accelerating AI adoption for radiologists at leading U.S. healthcare systems.

At Einstein Healthcare in Philadelphia, for example, Radiology Department Chair Dr. Terence Matalon led the effort to integrate the VIDA LungPrint model, available through the Nuance AI Marketplace, into Nuance PowerScribe One, its speech-recognition based solution for radiology reporting. Einstein Healthcare has processed nearly 1,400 studies using the solution, which automatically inserts detailed lung density and other previously unavailable information directly into radiology reports.

"The workflow integration is very important, and the application has worked well, importing the information into fields in the report exactly as we prescribed it to work. From an operational and technical perspective, it was very easy to implement, and there has been good congruence between my subjective evaluation of lung fields and the objective assessment by the software. We are looking forward to implementing other applications through the Nuance AI Marketplace in the coming months, and also consolidating other algorithms already in production," said Dr. Matalon in a statement.

The Nuance AI Marketplace leverages the PowerShare Network infrastructure to bring AI directly to 80 percent of radiologists already using Nuance PowerScribe One, PowerScribe 360, and PowerScribe Workflow Orchestration solutions.

"As Nuance and independent industry analysts have often noted, it's not enough to simply develop AI models. You have to support adoption by giving developers a scalable market model by providing physicians real-time clinical intelligence and solutions that are integrated into their regular workflows and by addressing healthcare administrators' requirements for security, patient privacy, and compatibility with their existing IT infrastructure. The acceleration of the AI Marketplace signals the widespread adoption of AI in radiology using our range of diagnostics solutions," said Karen Holzberger, senior vice president and general manager of Nuance Healthcare's Diagnostic Division, in a statement.
