Duke Health, Nference partner on analytics research, medical discoveries

Durham, N.C.-based Duke Health has partnered with data analytics company Nference to advance the academic health system's research and medical discoveries.

Nference has previously collaborated with Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic on artificial intelligence-powered disease diagnosis and treatment and received funding from its venture capital arm, Mayo Clinic Ventures.

"The average time for life-saving research to get from the bench to bedside, and then to our communities, can take up to 17 years," said Jeffrey Ferranti, MD, senior vice president and chief digital officer of Duke Health, in a joint Jan. 4 news release. "During this time many patients miss out on access to next-generation cures, and we have a responsibility to lead in bringing these cures to patients faster."

The two entities said the collaboration will grow and evolve in the coming years.
