AppDirect Enters Healthcare Vertical with Nuance Marketplace

By Alex Smith / Nov 30, 2018

Digital platforms are creating tidal waves of change that are roaring across the business landscape. Despite this, the healthcare industry has been relatively calm. According to Accenture, however, that's about to change. "The imperative for medical technology companies is to move quickly to adopt digital platforms. If they don’t, it’s only a matter of time before the digital disruptors move in."

Nuance Healthcare is well ahead of the curve. Earlier this week, the health information management-focused division of Nuance Communications announced the rapid growth of its Artificial Intelligence (AI) Marketplace for Diagnostic Imaging. Powered by AppDirect, the AI Marketplace connects developers, researchers, and technology leaders to build, test, validate, and share algorithms for radiology. 

As a platform, the Nuance solution delivers benefits to radiologists, developers, and patients alike. It gives medical professionals instant access to the largest storefront of AI algorithms in medical imaging, while giving developers reach to 70 percent of all radiologists, a huge portion of the market. Moreover, faster access to imaging algorithms improves patient outcomes.

AppDirect is proud to work with innovative companies like Nuance Healthcare to create real, tangible improvements in people's lives.

“Augmenting radiologists’ expertise with AI is not futuristic, foreboding, or frightening. It’s happening now and offers immediate and ongoing benefits," says Karen Holzberger, Vice President and General Manager of Healthcare Diagnostics at Nuance." Just as the Apple iOS App Store changed how we used and viewed smartphones, the AI Marketplace can deliver a similar transformation to the quality of care."
