Blackford, a medical imaging AI platform provider, and rad AI, a fast-growing radiologist led AI company, announce strategic sales partnership

June 22, 2022 — Blackford, a medical imaging AI platform leader that helps healthcare professionals add clinical value, today announced a strategic partnership with Rad AI, the nation’s fastest-growing radiologist-led AI company. This partnership will enable Blackford to present Rad AI and its advanced technology in generating customized radiology report impressions to its sales portfolio. 

"Blackford and Rad AI both exist to help make the life of the radiologist better and to enable more efficient and effective patient care. Radiology has never been under more pressure, and we believe that harnessing AI makes a real difference,” said Blackford Founder and CEO Ben Panter. “We're therefore excited to be partnering with a like-minded company like Rad AI to streamline adoption of their AI product across healthcare providers.” 

Rad AI automatically generates a customized impression from the findings and clinical indication dictated by the radiologist, using the most advanced neural networks. It learns each radiologist’s language preferences from their prior reports, to create an impression that the radiologist can simply review and finalize. In addition, Rad AI improves report accuracy and consistency by making sure to include significant incidental findings, answering the main clinical question, and providing the latest consensus guideline recommendations for follow-up. The impression appears in the practice's voice recognition software as soon as the radiologist finishes dictating the findings, without any clicks, hotkeys, or new windows. 

“Blackford and Rad AI both have similar goals: to improve efficiency and reduce burnout for radiology practices to help reduce the cost of care and add clinical value,” said Dr. Jeff Chang, ER radiologist and co-founder of Rad AI. “We’re excited to see how two innovative companies with aligned goals can work together to improve patient care.”
