InstantRad Inc has joined NVIDIA Inception Program to enhance its teleradiology software, using Artificial Intelligence. This will make the diagnosis and treatment of injuries and diseases quicker and better using medical images, by transporting these images digitally from modalities to radiologists in a very short time, to increase the chances of saving patients’ lives and making healthcare more accessible.
According to the Co-founder – Seth Quansah, there is a shortage of radiologists in Africa, and the team hopes to fill the gap by increasing the current number of radiologists on its platform (which currently has over 100 African radiologists).
“Ghana, for instance, has about 80 radiologists serving a population of 32 million people. Nigeria, with a population of about 210 million people, has less than 300 radiologists. In some African countries, there is only one radiologist for every five million people,” – Seth Quansah (Co-founder, InstantRad)
The company offers Teleradiology-Platform-As-A-Service (TPaas) which enables hospitals to demand interpretation of medical images for their patients from radiologists promptly while radiologists can provide their services to different hospitals when needed.
InstantRad Inc has joined the NVIDIA Inception Program and is also exploring using its tool to enhance the teleradiology company’s Artificial Intelligence capabilities as part of its efforts to make the interpretation of medical images quicker and better.
NVIDIA Inception will give InstantRad access to the best technical tools, hardware, software tools, technical support, opportunities, and the latest resources that will help in delivering advanced solutions to radiologists, patients, and the healthcare sector in Africa. This program is designed to help startups evolve faster through access to cutting-edge technology and NVIDIA experts.
Benefits of the collaboration to patients and Healthcare in Africa.
This collaboration will:
● Increase developer productivity, development, and deployment of high-quality applications following best practices.
● Result in a faster teleradiology process and resultant diagnostics.
● Reduce the cost involved in the provision of professional healthcare service delivery.
● Increase efficiency in healthcare service delivery.
● Ensure that patients are able to promptly access the best treatment methods.
We are super-excited about this partnership, the benefits attached to it, and the imminent growth of InstantRad.
Kudos to the team!
