The university medical center and healthcare technology group are entering into a unique partnership

Philips IntelliSpace presented AI Workflow Suite [1] at the 2019 Radiological Society of North America Annual Meeting (RSNA) . The Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC) has recently signed an agreement with Philips and will be the first in the world to use the platform.

The platform is linked to the LUMC clinical systems, so that they can automatically request an AI-driven analysis, for example on the images of an MRI scan. New and existing AI models from the LUMC are placed in the platform so that researchers and doctors can retrieve, adjust, use and share them again. With the platform there is also the possibility to make the scientifically validated AI models that are being developed in the LUMC available for other hospitals worldwide.

In addition, specialists from both organizations will work together to accelerate the application of AI. Philips will support the LUMC with the personalization, evaluation, validation and approval of new AI models. An example is an AI model that provides laboratory technicians with real-time feedback during X-ray imaging. In this way, a quality photo of the patient is immediately taken during the first attempt.

Realizing the AI promise together

“There is a lot of talk about the application of AI in healthcare and the expectations are very high. However, the actual application of AI in daily care is lagging behind. It is high time that AI is implemented in daily practice and that we determine its added value. We are convinced that AI can demonstrably improve the quality of life and the quality of care, ”says Prof. dr. Dr. Mark van Buchem, Radiologist and AI pioneer at the LUMC. “And yet we still see too often that people stop developing AI. That happens all over the world and we have to do something about it. It is now really necessary to make AI suitable for practice and to actually use it with doctors and other healthcare professionals. Only then can we use the potential of AI in healthcare to our advantage and test it. By establishing this AI platform together with Philips and first making the AI available for our colleagues in the LUMC, and with proven success for all healthcare professionals worldwide, we are widening and speeding up the application of AI in healthcare. ”
AI is a promising development to improve care outcomes and patient experience. In addition, AI can contribute to improving the working environment of healthcare providers and help to reduce healthcare costs. The introduction of IntelliSpace AI Workflow Suite is an important step to realize the potential of AI in healthcare.

LUMC is the first in the world to use IntelliSpace AI Workflow Suite

“We are very proud that the LUMC is the first in the world to launch the IntelliSpace AI Workflow Suite platform. The platform is a virtual environment in which AI models are managed. Doctors and researchers from the LUMC can continue to work on development and share models with each other in IntelliSpace AI Workflow Suite, ”says José Strijbos, Director Healthcare Informatics at Philips Benelux. “Our goal is to develop solutions for healthcare challenges together with university medical centers and hospitals. AI is a promising development to improve care outcomes and patient experience. In addition, AI can contribute to improving the working environment of healthcare providers and help to reduce healthcare costs. The introduction of IntelliSpace AI Workflow Suite is an important step to realize the potential of AI in healthcare. ”
