Medical AI R&D Services

CuraCloud data scientists, software engineers, and designers provide AI professional services to medical technology vendors, healthcare organizations, and pharmaceutical companies that need machine learning and bioinformatics R&D capacity.

Our Services

Image Annotation and Data Curation

Our imaging analytics operations center provides cost-effective annotation and reporting services. The DICOM image files are sent to the center where they will be  processed by our trained technical staff  under radiologist supervision. We offer customized services for research related image annotations and reports, catering to our clients’ needs.

Machine Learning and Algorithm Development

Our team of computer vision and natural language processing scientists create deep learning models that can interpret medical data, including imaging data (X-ray, CT, Ultrasound, MRI, PET, Pathology, etc.) and electronic clinical reports. Utilizing our in-house GPU clusters, we are able to quickly build AI engines using massive annotated data to detect, classify, segment, measure diseases from images, and to turn unstructured text reports into a structured database. We have filed more than 60 machine learning technology patents and more than 10 scientific publications within the past two years.

Scalable SaaS Engineering

Building secure, scalable, usable AI products requires much more than AI algorithms alone. Our software engineering team has strong experience building applications using advanced user interfaces, scalable web server technologies, and cybersecurity for deployment across the cloud, mobile devices, etc. Our quality management system is ISO 13485 certified, and we have received a CE mark for our first software medical device.

PHI De-identification

HIPAA requires organizations that receive Protected Health Information (PHI) to apply both technical and administrative controls to protect the security and privacy of this data. We have implemented such controls so that a dedicated, separated team can de-identify PHI in a highly controlled environment and then export it to a larger AI team in a PHI-cleansed state, thus limiting risks and allowing its use for research and other compliant applications.

Clinical Integration

Bringing AI into the clinical workflow often involves integration with PACS, VNAs, EMRs, DICOM Routers, Enterprise Worklists, and other existing IT solutions. Accomplishing seamless integration requires expertise in technologies including RESTful APIs, HL7, FHIR, and proprietary interfaces. We bring experts into projects capable of solving the interoperability challenges so that the promise of AI can be brought the last mile into practical use.

Clinical Validation Study Design

During the first three years of our company’s existence, we developed our own software medical devices. These efforts have contributed to a body of knowledge within the company about the design of clinical validation studies for software medical devices. We can apply this experience to custom development projects for our healthcare clients.

Regulatory Pathway Analysis

Our product development team has experience reviewing FDA device summaries and exploring alternative predicate devices for possible use in 510k submissions. This can be useful to clients who may need to pursue regulatory clearance or approvals for their software medical devices.

Human-Centered Design

Our human-centered design team can work with our clients to deeply understand workflow, end-user needs, and other human factors in the design of new AI solutions. This is a conscious break from the all-too-common practice of designing IT solutions without collaborating with those who use it.

Unique and Cost Effective

Existing commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) medical image analysis products are often limited. In-house agile development brings the advantages of being tailored, cost-effective, and uniquely valuable. By teaming with CuraCloud on internal development projects, the organization can get exactly what they find the most useful to their patients and to their customers.

Competitive Advantage for Healthcare Organizations

Healthcare organizations can accelerate their internal AI development by working with credible AI partners.

Our clients can directly deploy new capabilities in a compliant manner while creating evidence of clinical effectiveness for possible publication and/or for submission to the FDA as a software medical device.

Our clients may gain exclusive access to advanced clinical solutions. Combined with other innovations, AI can deliver a sustained competitive advantage for healthcare organizations.

Let's start something new together.
