SOPHiA AI Reaches Key Milestone By Helping to Better Diagnose 200k Patients Worldwide
Already deployed in over 430 hospitals across 60 countries SOPHiA analyses today 1 patient every 5 minutes.
SOPHiA GENETICS, global leader in data-driven medicine, announced last week that its technology for clinical genomics, SOPHiA artificial intelligence, has reached a key milestone in helping better diagnose 200’000 patients.
“When we launched SOPHiA GENETICS, we had a simple but ambitious objective, to build something that would help better diagnose and treat the maximum number of patients. We are thrilled by how rapidly SOPHiA is being adopted around the world. This illustrates the trust the healthcare industry has in our technology, and the need for a standardised approach in clinical genomics”, said Jurgi Camblong, CEO and Co-Founder of SOPHiA GENETICS.
Adopted by over 430 hospitals across 60 countries, SOPHiA AI has proven to be a robust and standardised decision support technology for clinicians. SOPHiA is the first AI to analyse over 200,000 patients’ genomic profiles around the world. This illustrates the rapid adoption of this technology which is trusted by clinicians to support their clinical decisions.
The recent use of digital technology in healthcare is creating a new world of opportunity to better diagnose and treat patients. The development of next-generation sequencing in particular, promises to enhance patient care for patients suffering from hereditary disease and it is expected that one in two people will be diagnosed with cancer in the coming years. In both cases, clinical genomic analysis through NGS help to pinpoint the molecular origin in driving the disease and to tackle the cause of such disease rather than act on its consequences.
Genomic data analysis and interpretation are extremely complex and presents significant challenges to be implemented in clinical practice. SOPHiA AI handles this complexity making data relevant and helping clinicians to quickly adopt clinical genomics.
The company and its technology are recognised for its innovative approach and impact on people’s lives. SOPHiA GENETICS was listed by the MIT Technology Review among the 50 Smartest Companies worldwide and more recently in Fast Company’s Top 10 Most Innovative Biotech Companies.
