Teleradiologia de Colombia is a leading diagnostic imaging services provider in Latin America and is rolling out Oxipit AI solutions worldwide.

FREMONT, CA: Oxipit AI suite will provide preliminary chest X-Ray reports, identify healthy patient images with no abnormalities, augment radiologist productivity, and improve radiologist workflow. It marks the very first Oxipit deployment in Colombia, with more launches in Latin America around the corner.

Teleradiolog­a de Colombia is the biggest teleradiology services provider in Colombia, leading healthcare groups in its client portfolio. The company is part of the ATRYS medical group. ATRYS radiology units report on above one million imaging cases every year and employ above 100 radiology specialists.

"Innovations are at the core of Teleradiologia de Colombia mission to deliver precision medicine to the patients. We strive to provide top medical specialists with cutting edge technological tools to improve their work routine," says Director of Innovation at Teleradiologia de Colombia Dr. Jos Hernando Morales.

Before the rollout, Oxipit AI solutions underwent thorough testing and received very positive feedback from the company’s radiologists. Oxipit made specific tweaks to its AI suite's performance to better fit specialist Teleradiologia de Colombia needs.

"We highly encourage all our clients to try before you buy - evaluate the performance of AI tools on their own data and under realistic workflow conditions. Only in this way we can maximize the productivity gains for the radiologists who will be the daily end users of AI applications. We were very encouraged by the radiologist feedback from Teleradiolog­a de Colombia and are delighted to work with such a forward-looking, innovation driven partner," states CEO of Oxipit Gediminas Peksys.

This marks the first Oxipit AI software deployment in Colombia, and many such deployments in the LATAM region are soon to follow.

"Latin America presents a growing diagnostic imaging market with a high focus on innovations and efficiency," added Mr. Peksys.

Oxipit ChestEye AI imaging suite offers preliminary reports for 75 radiological findings. The platform also finds healthy patient scans featuring no abnormalities with high certainty. Oxipit ChestEye quite recently received a medical device certification in Australia. It was granted a CE mark in 2019.
