May 26, 2016 — Zebra Medical Vision announced an additional financing round of $12 million led by InterMountain Healthcare, with the participation of existing investors. InterMountain Healthcare, one of the top performing integrated care providers in the United States, plans to work with Zebra to accelerate the creation of meaningful imaging algorithms to improve patient care.

Zebra Medical Vision was founded in 2014 with the vision of teaching computers to automatically read and diagnose medical imaging data. The company’s analytics engine helps physicians and healthcare providers analyze millions of imaging records, in an effort to close the diagnostic gap created by a billion people worldwide joining the middle class in the coming decade, who will require diagnostic services.

The Zebra platform has already yielded imaging insights that have been validated using hundreds of thousands of cases. Current algorithms are in the fields of bone health, cardiovascular analysis, liver and lung indications. These algorithms, developed using Zebra’s platform, can be applied to provide health and risk management insights to patients and providers. A strategic partnership with Dell Services, who provide cloud-based imaging storage solutions to over 1,100 providers including InterMountain Healthcare, helps Zebra take its products to market.

“We are excited by the opportunities that machine learning and computer vision algorithms can provide. These tools will help us improve patient care, by analyzing imaging data at a large scale for the first time, in addition to textual data,” noted Bert Zimmerli, InterMountain Healthcare chief financial officer. “When we researched this field and the various technologies available, the Zebra platform approach stood out in its proven ability to digest millions of imaging files and create new algorithms rapidly.”
