OSF HealthCare Selects Inspirata as Its Cancer Informatics Solution Provider

Tampa, Florida, July 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cancer informatics and digital pathology provider Inspirata announced today a new partnership with the integrated health system OSF HealthCare.

OSF HealthCare provides state-of-the-art care to nearly three million people throughout Illinois and Michigan with more than 150 locations, including 15 hospitals and two colleges of nursing.

Inspirata’s E-Path suite, drawing on proprietary Natural Language Processing (NLP) and other clinically optimized AI, is already deployed in over 400 hospitals, cancer centers, and laboratories globally.

Under this partnership, OSF HealthCare will leverage Inspirata’s data abstraction solution, E-Path Plus, to instantly interpret the text of diagnostic reports, identify reportable cases, and route them directly to the relevant cancer registry. “We look forward to applying the powerful and flexible NLP and AI technology that comes packaged in E-Path Plus to accelerate our cancer data abstraction process and thus continue to offer world-class cancer care to our patients,” said Tammy Crebo, Vice President of Clinical Data at OSF HealthCare.

“We’re thrilled to partner with an integrated health system of the stature and size of OSF HealthCare for yet another implementation of our E-Path Plus, the flagship in our family of Cancer Registry-focused solutions,” said Dr. Steve Keresztes, Vice President of Oncology Informatics at Inspirata. “We are proud to be assisting OSF HealthCare in achieving significant time savings and improvements to the overall accuracy and consistency of how clinical data elements are surfaced and abstracted. We have the tremendous opportunity to demonstrate the true value that E-Path Plus brings to all hospitals and integrated healthcare systems.”
