NTT Data partners with Pieces Technologies to integrate AI into clinical analytics portfolio

NTT Data Services, a technology services provider, entered into a partnership with Pieces Technologies to integrate clinical artificial intelligence capabilities into its analytics portfolio, the companies announced Jan. 10.

NTT Data Services provides hospitals, long-term care facilities, acute-care facilities and physician practices with solutions related to patient engagement, predictive analytics and revenue cycle management, among other services to address healthcare efficiencies.

Under the partnership, NTT Data Services will integrate Pieces Technologies' decision sciences software into its portfolio of data integration, data analytics and cloud services capabilities. The software uses AI and natural language processing to inform decision-making at the point of care, such as using data from EHRs to identify patients at risk for sepsis.

"Together, we will provide unparalleled insight to health systems at the point of care to reduce costs and improve the care team experience."
