Baptist Health to Improve Cancer Care with VCurePrecision™ Cognitive Computing Platform

MONTGOMERY, AL (March 5, 2018) (VieCure and related products are the property of Viviphi Ltd) VieCure and Baptist Health announced today that the VCurePrecision platform will be deployed across the central Alabama cancer network, offering personalized cancer treatment to an estimated 4,000 patients annually throughout the region.  

Baptist Health is a 689-licensed-bed and accredited health system in Montgomery and is the largest provider of cancer services in central Alabama. They have committed to advancing the care offered to cancer and hematology patients through the cognitive computing platform developed by VieCure.   

The VCurePrecision platform allows clinicians to generate and manage comprehensive, personalized care plans in real time. Powered by the Eyellation™ inference engine, the platform combines patient-specific data with expert codified knowledge to create and manage personalized and actionable treatment plans based on nationally and internationally-accepted standards of care, including the latest genomic-based considerations where and when appropriate.

“Cognitive computing is the use of computers to simulate expert thinking,” said Dr. Fred Ashbury, Chief Scientific Officer at VieCure. “Our 21st century platform facilitates clinical peer-to-peer knowledge transfer where physicians get immediate access to up-to-date standards of care tempered with expert knowledge based on the genomic makeup of the patient’s cancer, where appropriate.”

Patients will have the confidence of knowing that their personalized plan will include the best medical evidence and the latest treatment options.  The platform will also give patients greater access to clinical trials, comprehensive treatment information, and the ability to actively participate in their care with the VCureMobile patient app.

The VCurePrecision platform will be interfaced with the Baptist Health electronic medical record system. The implementation of the new cognitive computing platform will occur this spring and summer and it is anticipated that physicians and patients will begin to benefit from this new technology in fall 2018.
