Blackford and Rad AI announce strategic sales partnership

June 22, 2022 – Blackford, a leader in medical imaging AI platform that helps healthcare professionals add clinical value, today announced a strategic partnership with Rad AI, the country’s fastest growing radiologist-led AI company. This partnership will enable Blackford to present Rad AI and its advanced technology to generate bespoke radiology report impressions for its sales portfolio.

“Blackford and Rad AI both exist to help make the radiologist’s lives better and to enable more efficient and effective patient care. Radiology has never been under more pressure, and we believe that utilizing AI makes a real difference,” he said. Blackfords founder and CEO Ben Panter. “We are therefore pleased to partner with a like-minded company like Rad AI to streamline the introduction of their AI product across healthcare providers.”

Rad AI automatically generates a customized impression from the results and the clinical indication dictated by the radiologist, using the most advanced neural networks. It learns each radiologist’s language preferences from their previous reports to create the impression that the radiologist can simply review and conclude. In addition, Rad AI improves the accuracy and consistency of the report by making sure to include significant random findings, answer the main clinical question, and provide the latest consensus guidelines for follow-up. The impression appears in the practice’s voice recognition software as soon as the radiologist has finished dictating the results, without clicks, shortcut keys or new windows.

“Blackford and Rad AI both have similar goals: to improve efficacy and reduce burnout for radiology practice to help reduce the cost of care and add clinical value,” said Dr. Jeff Chang, ER radiologist and co-founder of Rad AI. “We are excited to see how two innovative companies with coordinated goals can work together to improve patient care.”
