GE HealthCare Chief Technology Officer, Taha Kass-Hout, MD, MS, will be discussing how the company is applying a range of AI-enabled solutions toward healthcare’s digital transformation in an upcoming Innovation Theatre presentation during the Radiological Society of North America Scientific Sessions and Annual Meeting, RSNA 2023, being held in Chicago, IL.
November 22, 2023 — GE HealthCare is preparing to showcase its Artificial Intelligence (AI)-enabled solutions at the 109th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America, RSNA 2023, being held Nov. 26-30 in Chicago, IL.
In a statement issued by the company summarizing the range of products to be showcased during the meeting, the company noted findings from a report by RBC Capital Markets that approximately 30% of the world’s data is generated by healthcare (1), and that 97% of data produced by hospitals remains unused (2). As the pace of digitization has quickened, so, too, has the movement toward digital technology, spurred primarily from the COVID-19 pandemic. As noted in the report, in just three years, a lot of progress has been made, and that same progress may have taken a decade otherwise. (3)
GE Chief Technology Officer, Taha Kass-Hout, MD, MS, shared commentary on the company’s goals to help accelerate digital transformation in healthcare. Prior to joining GE HealthCare, Kass-Hout served as Vice President, Machine Learning and Chief Medical Oﬃcer Amazon and Amazon Web Services. In part, he offered: "We’re harnessing the power of digital technology and artificial intelligence to create seamless, intuitive, and intelligent tools that are designed to empower clinicians to deliver high-quality, personalized care. Our vision is a solution that provides a centralized, longitudinal view of the patient, connecting data in and out of the hospital, and providing real-time insights that inform treatment decisions.”
During RSNA 2023, on Monday, Nov. 27 from 12:15 – 12:45 p.m. CT, Kass-Hout will be presenting at GE HealthCare’s Innovation Theater (Booth 7326) and will be discussing how GE HealthCare is transforming healthcare with technology innovation.
Additionally, the company will showcase several AI-enabled products, as well as GE HealthCare’s App Orchestrator, an application orchestration solution that can give customers easy access to multiple applications from multiple companies, and CardioVisio, a first-of-its-kind AFiB patient management dashboard from GE HealthCare designed to save time, improve clinical confidence, and deliver precision care.
GE HealthCare is also collaborating with Nuance and Microsoft on a research technology project that is intended to automatically assembles relevant prior studies/reports and summarizes significant content for radiologists in the imaging workflow (3).
According to the company statement released Nov. 22, GE HealthCare has topped a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) list of artificial intelligence (AI) enabled medical devices with 58 listed 510(k) clearances or authorizations to date in the United States, including Sonic DL for faster MRI scans, Auto Segmentation for streamlined radiation therapy workflow, and Precision DL for enhanced small, low-contrast lesion detectability compared to conventional Time-of-Flight PET/CT scanner.
