Montefiore Nyack Hospital Uses Aidoc AI to Spot Urgent Conditions Faster

August 5, 2019 — Montefiore Nyack Hospital, an acute care hospital in Rockland County, N.Y., announced it is utilizing artificial intelligence (AI) software to assist in identifying urgent life-threatening conditions on patient computed tomography (CT) scans. The commercial solution from medical AI company Aidoc automatically prioritizes critical medical conditions, ensuring patients are diagnosed and treated faster. Montefiore Nyack is the first regional hospital in the New York metropolitan area to use Aidoc, joining more than 160 medical centers worldwide.

A member of the academic medical center Montefiore Health System, Montefiore Nyack Hospital has developed a reputation for working with industry to help develop and implement state-of-the-art technology to improve patient care. 

“Incorporating artificial intelligence into our workflow process enables our physicians to expedite care for our most critical patients,” said Evan Kaminer, M.D., director of radiology and president of the medical staff at Montefiore Nyack Hospital. “The integration of Aidoc was fast and seamless, and the results were witnessed almost immediately. In one month alone, Aidoc flagged 77 patients with acute intracranial hemorrhage.”

“We are happy to be able to partner with a technology leader such as Aidoc,” said Mark Geller, M.D., president and CEO of Montefiore Nyack Hospital. “We are thrilled to be able to include this revolutionary technology in the care of our community.”

Aidoc has integrated Change Healthcare Workflow Intelligence radiology workflow manager, already in use by Montefiore Nyack. With this new integration, Aidoc has built a strong AI collaboration with Change Healthcare, providing radiologists with a unified AI-driven workflow. 

Aidoc’s always-on solution has three U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearances for flagging intracranial hemorrhage, cervical spine fracture and pulmonary embolism — life-threatening conditions that need immediate treatment. Aidoc works alongside radiologists by prioritizing these critical cases, moving them to the top of the worklist to be diagnosed immediately. In the most urgent cases, Aidoc can cut the time from scan to diagnosis to just a few minutes.
