NTT Data, Google Cloud co-developing new healthcare AI tools
NTT Data Services is working with Google Cloud to develop new analytics and AI technologies aimed at boosting the patient experience, streamlining operations and lowering costs for payers and providers.
WHY IT MATTERS
The two companies will collaborate on cloud-based digital tools to help providers harness data for improved patient outcomes and help payers better engage with their plan members, according to NTT Data.
The vendor, which has worked with Google for years and became a Google Cloud Premier Partner this past month, says it aims to help its clients – more than 45 health systems, 50 health plans and 50 life sciences companies – manage value-based care by offering new infrastructure, application, business process and security technologies.
Among the specific areas NTT plans to focus on with Google Cloud: patient engagement, population health, customer relationship management, clinical and claims apps and AI/automation.
“Google Cloud is a leader in analytics and artificial intelligence,” said Alan Hughes, President, Global Healthcare & Life Sciences, NTT DATA Services. “Combined with our global capabilities, investments in healthcare and industry expertise, there is a tremendous opportunity to dramatically improve the current ecosystem for all parties.”
