NTT works with Google Cloud to develop next-gen healthcare technology

NTT Data Services is to work with Google Cloud to develop tech solutions such as cloud, analytics, and artificial intelligence to improve patient outcomes in healthcare.

The companies hope the technology will help health plans better engage with members and providers.

NTT has worked with Google cloud for years and aims to help clients from more than 45 health systems, 50 health plans and 50 life insurance firms manage care with new infrastructure applications, business process, and security technologies.

Both companies hope that their scale will allow them to deliver the solutions also including machine learning and incorporating Internet of Things technology.

Cloud computing is becoming increasingly trusted in health systems and doctors, health systems, and pharma are turning to it to find ways to improve care and cut costs.

NTT has recently become a Google Cloud Premier Partner, and provides services such as patient engagement, customer relationship management, and population health and analytics.

It also offers claims application expertise and has experience in healthcare automation.

NTT Data said it plans to share more information about the solutions it will develop with Google Cloud later this year.

Alan Hughes, president, global healthcare and life sciences, NTT DATA Services, said: “There is a significant need for patients, providers and health plan administrators to have better access to clinical data and decision support.

“By collaborating with Google, we’ll work to solve industry issues with innovative solutions that provide new insights, create a healthcare experience similar to the retail models that consumers expect, improve the quality of care while reducing cost, and drive better outcomes for healthcare organisations.

“Google Cloud is a leader in analytics and artificial intelligence. Combined with our global capabilities, investments in healthcare and industry expertise, there is a tremendous opportunity to dramatically improve the current ecosystem for all parties.”
