Roche and GE Healthcare have launched the first fruit of their collaboration: the Navify Tumor Board 2.0, which incorporates medical image viewing with other patient data.

Aimed at multidisciplinary teams guiding cancer treatment, the product platform collates medical records from varying systems. By integrating GE’s radiology software and image storage alongside patient files and lab testing from other departments, the companies aim to save care providers time and energy.

“Workflows around tumour boards can be inefficient, and we hope this single, holistic dashboard—including patient data and images—will enable oncology teams to align more quickly on the most optimal diagnosis and treatment plan for the benefit of each patient,” Tom McGuinness, president and CEO of GE Healthcare Imaging, said in a statement.
