Geisinger taps Tempus to develop AI precision medicine tools

Danville, Pa.-based Geisinger Health System announced a multiyear partnership with Tempus, a Chicago-based biotech startup, to use artificial intelligence to build precision medicine solutions for cardiology.

The partnership will combine Geisinger's decades' worth of clinical data with Tempus' machine learning technology. The Tempus AI will analyze Geisinger's data to track patient outcomes and responses, with a goal of developing highly personalized and proactive treatments and interventions for cardiovascular disease.

"Our mission is to improve the lives of patients with cardiovascular disease through the development and application of state-of-the-art technologies," said Brandon Fornwalt, MD, PhD, co-director of Geisinger's Cardiac Imaging and Technology Laboratory, where the partnership will be housed. "This collaboration brings together complementary areas of expertise unified behind a joint vision of integrating the best technology available to positively impact our patients."
