San Mateo, Calif. — January 21, 2021 — RapidAI, the leader in advanced imaging for stroke, today announced it now serves over 50 hospitals and teleradiology services in Australia. The Rapid stroke imaging platform is TGA cleared.
Rapid is the first AI-powered stroke imaging solution approved in Australia. Around the world, Rapid is also the only clinically validated platform available and the gold standard for advanced cerebrovascular imaging and workflow.
In addition to broad adoption across the country, Rapid is also being rolled out across the state of New South Wales (NSW). In NSW, Rapid is part of a comprehensive telehealth initiative which leverages the Rapid Mobile App to optimize workflow, communication, and expedite patient treatment throughout the state’s large comprehensive and regional community hospitals.
Along with wide commercial success, RapidAI also continues to drive the research charge in Australia. The company is developing industry leading cerebrovascular imaging solutions through participation in clinical trials with 8 leading Australian hospitals and institutions.
“It has been gratifying to bring RapidAI technology home to support Australian healthcare,” said Doctor Roland Bammer, Professor of Radiology and Director of the NHMRC Centre for Research Excellence in Neuroimaging at the University of Melbourne, Cofounder and CTO at RapidAI. “We have a long-standing research collaboration with Australian Stroke researchers and it is great to see this translated into clinical routine. Australia is a vast country and I am delighted to see more people having access to faster care irrespective of their postcode.”
Doctor Bammer continued, “The statewide adoption in NSW alone has shown the true potential of network coordinated AI-powered stroke imaging and the resulting improvement in care. I am also excited that Monash Health, one of the largest hospital systems in Victoria, is now using Rapid. With its catchment area in the South Eastern Melbourne Metropolitan corridor, the institution reaches over two million Victorians. Access to the Rapid platform will have a considerable positive impact on the Acute Stroke care continuum for the Monash team and its patients.”
