IBM debuts Watson Imaging Clinical Review at HIMSS 2017

IBM Watson Health unveiled Watson Imaging Clinical Review at this week's Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference in Orlando, FL.

The company's first cognitive imaging offering, Watson Imaging Clinical Review reviews medical data including images to help healthcare providers identify the most critical cases that require attention, according to the vendor. The first application for the product targets aortic stenosis; a pilot study found that the artificial intelligence (AI) software helped hospital personnel identify potential aortic stenosis patients who had not previously been flagged for follow-up cardiovascular care, IBM said. The company plans to supplement the release of this application with support for nine additional cardiovascular conditions, such as myocardial infarctions, valve disorders, cardiomyopathy, and deep vein thrombosis.

In other news at HIMSS 2017, IBM Watson Health announced it has expanded the Watson Health Medical Imaging Collaborative to 24 members. New members include Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee; IDx in Iowa City, IA; PrivaCors in Tampa, FL; Strategic Radiology in Palmetto, FL; Sutter Health in Sacramento, CA; Pacific Radiology Group in New Zealand; the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, MI; and the University of Virginia Health System in Charlottesville, VA.
