Google Cloud elaborated on a medley of new partnerships under its belt last month at the 2018 Radiological Society of North America conference in Chicago.

“We’re providing infrastructure and platforms for those companies to build interesting solutions for their end customers,” Greg Moore, VP Google, Google Cloud Healthcare and Life Sciences, told HCB News. “Our strategy is to let them focus on their core competencies. If it’s a health care system, it’s providing care to patients. We’re focusing on our core competency in providing them with the ability to manage their data and recognize their data while taking care of security in ways that are difficult to do for most folks.”

Its list of new companies includes the following:
The company also revealed that it plans to further grow and develop its partnership with Change Healthcare, established at last year's RSNA.

“The data needs in healthcare are growing in ways that they never have before. It’s not clear that you will be able to do everything you need to on-premise anymore,” said Moore. “The machines are so powerful and carry so much data that you need a cloud solution where you can store this data and use it to do meaningful things. Just giving a provider all of the information they need about a patient and having that information available for that provider is key for helping them making the next right decision, whether that be a lab test or imaging test, going forward.”
