lifeIMAGE Becomes New Technology Partner with Google Cloud

November 8, 2017 — lifeIMAGE announced a new collaboration with Google Cloud Platform (GCP) to help mature global precision medicine initiatives by exploring point-of-care capabilities for physicians, and to aid researchers in the effort to identify, share and improve their understanding of population health.

By joining as a Google Cloud Technology Partner, lifeIMAGE has the opportunity to leverage GCP across its various solutions such as Mammosphere, a patient engagement tool that supports women’s health in mammography. In addition, lifeIMAGE now has the capability to use GCP as an extension of the company’s hybrid network hosting strategy for its customer base.

lifeIMAGE President and CEO Matthew Michela said one of the benefits of the relationship with Google Cloud will enable the company to more easily identify patterns of interest across billions of images to help clinicians make better treatment decisions in real time.

With its large digital ecosystem, lifeIMAGE supports the healthcare innovation lifecycle through its ability to gain novel insights from the data passing through its network. This new relationship with Google Cloud also strengthens the regulatory, compliance and data management collaborations with global customers, particularly in life sciences.

lifeIMAGE Chief Technology Officer Janak Joshi said the collaboration will focus on strategic opportunities to reduce the healthcare cost burden, to manage partner integrations in the digital ecosystem, and to improve the quality of insights gathered from genomic, radiomic and clinical datasets.

The partnership between lifeIMAGE and Google Cloud will be highlighted in the booths of both companies at the 2017 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting, Nov. 26-Dec. 1 in Chicago.
