When it comes to AI and machine learning, the regulatory trail has been blazed and the approval gates through open. The FDA has approved a couple dozen apps over the last year and a half—and the momentum is clearly building with Scott Gottlieb at the agency’s helm and recent moves to ramp up staffing to meet the demand.

Lawrence Tanenbaum is a big believer in AI, as a tool to create better images, offer a more comprehensive view of a patient and more effectively handle imaging’s increasing volume and complexity. Bigger yet, AI is the impetus to change the way radiology and medicine are practiced across the care spectrum.

The power of artificial intelligence (AI) is enabling clinical breakthroughs that identify biomarkers without invasive procedures, diagnose skin cancer with a photograph, predict adverse clinical events, and recommend treatments based on current literature. Getting these innovations to market requires access to large, complex data sets to train the AI models.

Healthcare is in an intense era of retooling, similar to the Industrial Revolution of several centuries ago. Bright minds in healthcare and technology are shaping new tools powered and empowered by artificial intelligence, machine learning and deep learning. This burgeoning Age of Intelligence is matching minds and machines to sharpen knowledge and insight to improve the delivery of care for patients, populations, practitioners and providers.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is rewiring the way we think about healthcare. And rewiring the way doctors predict, diagnose and treat disease, how exams are carried out and how health systems are run. Is AI a game-changer? Absolutely, and the game is changing a lot faster than many think.

Hartford HealthCare is Connecticut’s most comprehensive healthcare network. Over the last several years, this community and academic health system has grown significantly through its strategic affiliations with hospitals and a variety of providers. To support that growth, the health system brought on a Sectra Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA) to manage inpatient and ambulatory medical images across the enterprise. Image access and archiving became a strategic priority—initiated and dubbed the ImageConnect Project by Interventional Radiologist Barry Stein, MD, to guarantee physician access anywhere and anytime via their Epic EMR, says Richard Shirey, senior vice president and CIO and 40-year healthcare veteran whose task it was to execute on the project. Today IT is driving full enterprise access to patient images and information.

Healthcare systems, hospitals and healthcare entities are more and more discovering their needs for an enterprise imaging (EI) strategy. As we are learning, imaging markets have been experiencing explosive growth due to advances in functional imaging technology and exploration of molecular imaging targets for diagnosis and therapy. They have potential application in patient selection, pharmacokinetic, dosage‐finding and proof‐of‐concept studies. In addition, functional imaging is poised to play an even larger role in theranostics as our need for imaging requirements expand in all disease states. Thus, the continued expansion of imaging means integrating the appropriate sharing of patient information – which mimics the tag line of SG&A since 1992—“Solutions for the Integration of Patient Information.”

At ProMedica, a 13-hospital system serving northwestern Ohio and southeastern Michigan, the lineup of clinical departments soon to benefit from leadership’s decision to expand a long-installed radiology PACS into an enterprise VNA practically reads like a who’s who of the entire system. Cardiology, pathology and ophthalmology are on line or in line to be soon. So too are dermatology, wound care, maternal-fetal medicine, outpatient physician practices and more.
