At ECR 2019 this year, we had great conversations with attendees, customers, partners, exhibitors, and even had the opportunity to participate in an interview to discuss the future of AI with our friends at Médecine TV. Check out the last of three interview videos below and read the interview all about the latest news from EnvoyAI.
Interview below was conducted by EME (Médecine) TV.
Jeff Sorenson, TeraRecon President and CEO, Discusses The Latest at TeraRecon
Q: What’s new with TeraRecon at ECR 2019?
A: We're having a very exciting show here! 2019 is going to be about working with the established relationships we've made in 2018 regarding very cutting-edge AI workflows, working with those influencers, and working with those innovator sites to really make a difference. We are actually installing our EnvoyAI platform, creating workflows in this AI results explorer called Northstar and looking at each workflow to add first-value to our customers.
What you will see from TeraRecon are actual working examples of AI making a difference in healthcare. I want to point out that we're doing all this in partnership with AI developers and PACS companies, which create a collaborative initiative where our technology can unleash potential in a really affordable way.
Q: Do you have feedback from your customers and end users?
A: We do have feedback from the end user! These are sophisticated customers. These are physicians, and collections of multi-specialty groups who have come together to say, "Look, we know we have to participate in Artificial Intelligence. We know that there's a tie between how we plan radiotherapy or how we treat women in their care paths, and how we are doing endograft planning and vascular surgery, and how we're planning cardiac MR.” You can imagine all the different potential when you’re measuring and looking at images but it's just too hard and too time-consuming.
We don't have a problem finding problem statements in healthcare to solve and actually, the technology is so good it's not difficult to apply the technology to create these measurements. It's about focusing and deciding what problems to solve first. So, indeed, the customers are very clear about what they need. The actual measurements or color overlays or clinical indications that we need to make are also clear. The problem we solve is the interoperability and making the systems that exist see this new information.
Q: It seems that your company is all about collaboration between the developer, the end user, and the interoperability between all the existing systems. Do you agree?
A: That's right, we are really the middleware. There was a missing link where the systems that you view within couldn't handle ornate kinds of interactions, and AI developers didn't have experience inside of healthcare systems at scale. They couldn’t really make it work or didn't know how, and it would take way too many resources to learn.
We’ve made it easy, we've made it possible, and we've created this middleware, this interoperability layer. Whether that is viewing or working on a mobile device, working in your PACS, or working in your electronic health record. We built the technology layer that was missing and we're making it available to everyone.
ECR 2019 was a great opportunity to speak with attendees about their projects and spread the word about our exciting advanced visualization and AI solutions. We look forward to next year!
