University Hospitals Transforms Patient Care with Aidoc’s AI-Enabled Solutions Across Its Entire Health System

Aidoc aiOS™ integration across 13 hospitals focuses on enhancing clinical outcomes and streamlining workflow with access to 17 FDA-cleared AI algorithms

CLEVELAND, June 12, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — University Hospitals (UH) has announced a major advancement in its AI strategy with the deployment of Aidoc’s comprehensive AI platform (aiOS™) across 13 of its hospitals and dozens of its outpatient locations. This initiative marks a significant leap forward in leveraging cutting-edge technology for superior patient outcomes.

Driven by a commitment to provide the highest standard of care, UH sought a standardized, hyper-accurate AI platform that could be seamlessly integrated across its network of academic hospitals and outpatient locations. Having utilized AI in various small-scale applications, UH chose to expand its capabilities with Aidoc to empower care teams with the information they need to address some of today’s most pressing medical issues.

Patients at UH will benefit from faster diagnosis and treatment of acute conditions such as pulmonary embolism, aortic dissection, vertebral compression fracture and pneumothorax. When a patient arrives at a UH facility and undergoes a CT scan for an injury or pain, Aidoc’s AI analyzes the scan using its comprehensive algorithms. The technology identifies both expected and unexpected findings, helps physicians prioritize urgent cases and ensures all flagged conditions are reviewed by the care team. Aidoc’s AI facilitates communication between the care team to enhance collaboration and speed up treatment.
