Siemens, National Jewish Medical partner for personalized medicine
Siemens Healthcare and National Jewish Medical and Research Center have formed a strategic alliance to improve and develop novel imaging and diagnostic technologies using genomics, proteomics, and integrated research and clinical care.

As part of the initiative, National Jewish will integrate Siemens technology throughout the institution to help diagnose respiratory, cardiac and rheumatologic diseases. Much of the patient care and collaborative research will be conducted at the Institute for Advanced Biomedical Imaging.

The Institute, scheduled to open this spring, will house two Siemens CT systems and one PET-CT system, replacing the hospital's current CT scanner. Key to the long-term development of this vision is an integrated RIS and PACS that uses the same syngo architecture as the imaging modalities leading to data reconciliation and consistency, Siemens said.

"We are excited about our collaboration with National Jewish and look forward to supporting the organization with new clinical pathways and workflows for improved quality and patient care," said Heinrich Kolem, CEO of Siemens Medical Solutions USA. "Integrating new concepts for early detection, including state-of-the-art imaging and information technologies, as well as molecular methods, will help support our shared vision of personalized healthcare."
