Siemens focuses on digitalization at HIMSS

by Lauren Dubinsky , Senior Reporter
The healthcare industry is facing everything from a tidal wave of big data to more empowered patients. With this in mind, Siemens Healthineers will be showing its expanded digital service portfolio at the HIMSS 2019 Global Conference & Exhibition this week.

“We see digitalization as a key enabler to derive the value for the healthcare provider, like expanding precision medicine, performing care delivery, and improving the patient experience,” Joerg Aumueller, head of digitalizing healthcare and vice president of marketing, told HCB News.

Special-Pricing Available on Medical Displays, Patient Monitors, Recorders, Printers, Media, Ultrasound Machines, and Cameras.This includes Top Brands such as SONY, BARCO, NDS, NEC, LG, EDAN, EIZO, ELO, FSN, PANASONIC, MITSUBISHI, OLYMPUS, & WIDE.

The company already holds 500 patents in the machine learning field and more than 40 AI-based applications. As a result, they have a lot of experience in applying the best algorithm technology to answer clinical questions.

At HIMSS, Siemens will display its AI-Pathway Companion and AI-Rad Companion Chest CT, which are designed to bring digitalization into the clinical routine. The former is a clinical decision support system that leverages AI-imported clinical guidelines data, and the latter is the company’s first AI software assistant for radiology.

“If you look at the market trends that are happening, we see an increase in CT and MR images by 10 to 12 percent a year but the radiologist workflows are only growing by 3 to 4 percent,” said Aumueller. “The challenge they have is to interpret the image in three to four seconds.”

AI-Rad Companion Chest CT distinguishes between multiple structures, highlights them individually and identifies and measures potential abnormalities. It then automatically generates a quantitative report using that data.

The company’s syngo Virtual Cockpit will also be on display, which is a software solution that remotely connects to scanner workplaces to assist clinicians with difficult exams. It’s compatible with MR, PET/MR and CT systems.

“This ensures you have the same skill level at a certain point, and allows you to remotely interact with the system to gain access to areas where the knowledge is not on the high level,” said Aumueller.

Siemens is also interested in operationalizing the value of data. It plans to do that through its Team Play platform, which connects data to drive accurate dose, utilization and protocol management for radiology and cardiology departments.

Aumueller explained that hospitals are expanding into bigger networks and have to ensure radiological results are consistent. Team Play connects different heterogenous systems to drive that standardized and homogenous radiological result.
