MoU with Hewlett Packard Enterprise
Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and FathomX, a medtech spin-off from the National University of Singapore (NUS), signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to work together in enhancing the quality and productivity of healthcare in the Asia Pacific(APAC) region.
Under the MOU, HPE will provide a team of sales force as well as engineers to develop the software and implement the IT infrastructure required to run essential medical data processing and analysis and potentially deploy it to over 130 clinics in the APAC region. The AI technology at FathomX, coupled with a deployment model that is built upon a flexible and secure technical infrastructure that complies with existing clinical policies, which has already been tested and deployed in and proven to be feasible for a hospital setting, will improve both the efficiency and accuracy of existing screening and diagnostic methods, hence reducing the burden on clinicians on the ground.
The agreement will also see the creation of a pipeline that will allow for even more technologies in the field of medical imaging, reinforcement learning, and natural language processing to be licensed back to the company and brought out to market.
