Health Informatics

We work as trusted partners to our customers, helping them to adapt to healthcare’s evolving world and to advance digital health transformation at defining moments in a patient’s journey.

Cardiology Informatics

Each one of your patients has a distinctive history of symptoms, tests, diagnosis and treatments. Turn large amounts of aggregated data into a decisive clinical plan that reflects their uniqueness.

Radiology informatics

Radiology Informatics

From the moment a patient is referred to the radiology department to the time their clinical status is known, their care depends on a cascade of complex workflows where precision is essential. Every person involved plays a critical role in getting it right. And every contributor must be empowered with the right data, technology, and clinical insights to enable that patient’s pathway to precision diagnosis and therapy.
