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.
The collaboration, first inked in January, initially focuses on oncology and critical care, but the partnership can grow beyond those areas. The ultimate goal is a suite of products integrating in vitro lab and medical imaging data plus information on best practices, research outcomes and real-time monitoring.

“Our mutual focus is on delivering clinical decision support solutions that enable healthcare professionals to make faster, more confident decisions, allowing more personalized treatment based on truly integrated diagnostics,” said Roche Diagnostics CEO Michael Heuer.
The new version of the cloud-based Navify Tumor Board will first be available in the U.S. and Canada, with plans to expand to additional markets in the near future, the companies said.
