COLLECTIVE MINDS RADIOLOGY AB (CMRAD)
Collective Minds Radiology AB builds an online global collaboration platform for radiology and medical imaging. The platform “Collective Minds®” located at cmrad.com is a CE marked medical device where doctors can share patient cases for discussion between both human and machines in a secure and compliant way. The platform manages full industry standard DICOM stacks, manages complex patient cases containing multiple radiological studies and comes with an integrated, exchangeable zero-footprint viewer. Its UX design is primarily aimed to be intuitive, fast and mobile-first and attempts to break away from traditional medical imaging solutions. The platform comes ready for pluggable AI algorithms to interact with the human community, deploys a fast and stateless integration proxy at participating hospitals and was designed to allow for tailoring of many differentiated workflows within the platform.
