Aidoc today announced a transformative partnership with Ochsner Health, a large healthcare system headquartered in New Orleans, operating 46 hospitals and more than 370 health and urgent care centers across the Gulf South. This partnership unites the clinical excellence of Ochsner with the power of Aidoc’s advanced AI solutions, creating an alliance that advances the way healthcare is delivered, experienced and optimized across Louisiana and the Gulf South region. Ochsner has a proven track record as a leading adopter of emerging technologies and was an early adopter of integrating AI into patient care workflows. With the addition of Aidoc’s clinical AI solutions and enterprise-wide AI platform, aiOSTM, Ochsner is further empowering healthcare professionals and improving patient outcomes.
“In the ever-evolving healthcare landscape, our teams at Ochsner Health are dedicated to harnessing emerging technologies to achieve our goals. We seek to leverage new technologies to deliver optimal outcomes without disrupting existing care processes,” says Denise Basow, MD, Executive Vice President and Chief Digital Officer at Ochsner. “Aidoc possesses a deep understanding of the crucial challenges in implementing new technologies and have a proven track record of real-world impact that drives improved patient outcomes.” Driven by a shared vision of advancing patient care, this partnership seeks to leverage emerging AI technology to drive tangible improvements across the healthcare landscape. Key objectives of this collaboration include:
“Embracing innovation is not just a choice but a responsibility, especially when it comes to patient care,” stated Louis Jeansonne, MD, Chief Medical Information Officer at Ochsner. “By integrating AI into our clinical workflows, and leveraging the data within our EHR, we empower our team and pave the way for advancements that directly impact patient outcomes. This collaboration with Aidoc underscores our commitment to embracing cutting-edge technologies that have the power to reshape the healthcare landscape and provide better care to our
Ochsner’s enterprise agreement with Aidoc includes imaging AI algorithms that identify various suspected acute abnormalities in patient scans and enable cross-specialty teams to triage and coordinate care efficiently. Additionally, the agreement leverages Aidoc’s proprietary aiOSTM, a
first-of-its-kind solution, helping facilities overcome challenges common to AI implementation, including integration with existing IT systems, the EHR, data management and reporting, while being flexible enough to grow and scale as patient care needs evolve.
There is growing recognition from health systems that an enterprise-wide AI platform that runs effectively in any clinical setting and activates numerous AI applications at once can provide better outcomes – both clinical and financial – than a single, pathology-based AI algorithm.
“Ochsner Health’s unwavering dedication to innovation and trailblazing spirit is inspiring and is a testament to their continued pursuit of excellence,” commented Elad Walach, CEO at Aidoc. “Our partnership is yet another proof point of how they embrace technology for true impact at the patient bedside. As we collaborate to integrate our enterprise-wide AI solutions, we are confident that our collective efforts will not only accelerate Ochsner’s goals but also redefine the possibilities of patient care. Together, we will leverage the power of AI to drive transformative outcomes.”
