Partnership has the potential to be among the largest clinical deployment of AI in healthcare, and affect as many as 40 million annual exams
Sidley represented Radiology Partners (RP), the leading radiology practice in the U.S., in the formation of a strategic alliance with Aidoc, the leading provider of artificial intelligence (AI) solutions for medical imaging, to offer unparalleled AI capabilities to its hospitals and health systems, and to accelerate the adoption of AI as the standard of care in radiology. “AI has the potential to unlock enormous value for the entire healthcare ecosystem, and I believe our partnership with Aidoc will turn out to be the tipping point for AI in radiology, a medical specialty that has systemic influence on the overall delivery of patient care,” said Rich Whitney, CEO and Chairman for RP.
In addition to the broad implementation, as partners, RP and Aidoc will develop new clinical programs and AI-based radiology services to broaden the impact of AI in clinical care. Other areas of collaboration will include real-world data, post-market surveillance, marketing, distribution, and physician education, training, and feedback.
The Sidley team was led by partners Rob R. Carlson (M&A) and Joshua T. Hofheimer (Technology and IP Transactions), and included Jeffrey M. Senger and Rachael Hunt (Food, Drug and Medical Device Regulatory); Edwin Norris and Jonathan M. Westreich (Tax); Elliott M. Blufer (Technology and IP Transactions); and Jake Funk (M&A).
