The partnership combines the market-leading capabilities of the two companies to help pharmaceutical and biotech companies accelerate drug development and post-market safety, effectiveness and label expansion.

"Life sciences companies have traditionally relied upon structured data such as EHR records and medical claims for RWE. Those data sources often fall short when it comes to diseases like cancer and multiple sclerosis where imaging is integral to care. Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning technology, when applied to imaging, has demonstrated early utility for improving how diseases are detected, diagnosed and treated," said Dan Housman, Chief Technology Officer, Graticule. "Life Image's broad provider network offers the scale needed to aggregate data to realize the full potential of AI in medicine."
The market need for advanced data is well recognized by industry veterans.
"Imaging and radiology reports provide rich diagnostic and outcomes data but have been challenging to access and scale for the Real World Evidence (RWE) market," said Michael Weintraub, Co-Founder & CEO, Humedica and Ardan Equity. "The Graticule Life Image partnership combines complementary health IT and life sciences expertise needed to unlock the hard last mile of utility that most groups struggle with."
