Tampa General Hospital Teams Up with Navina to Bring Transformative AI to Primary Care Physicians
Navina, an Artificial Intelligence (AI)-powered platform that transforms large amounts of patient data into actionable primary care, and Tampa General Hospital (TGH), a 1,040-bed, not-for-profit, academic medical center and one of the largest hospitals in the United States, have announced a new partnership to bring Navina’s AI to the health system’s primary care clinicians.
Navina’s AI takes large amounts of patient data, including information from labs, consult notes, imaging and more to help create a concise picture of a patient’s health status that is instantly understandable and actionable. Clinicians using Navina’s platform can quickly assess diagnoses and opportunities to improve care and compliance with quality measures.
“Tampa General is committed to bringing our physicians — and by extension, their patients — the profound benefits of innovative new tools that will improve point-of-care interactions,” said Rachel Feinman, vice president of Innovation, Tampa General and managing director of TGH Innoventures. “Navina helps our providers streamline workflows while making value-based care a reality.”
TGH Innoventures provides a coordinated mechanism for Tampa General to develop innovative solutions to improve quality and access to care and serves as a platform to invest resources and funds into emerging companies that share the academic medical center’s vision and can help develop immediate solutions for health care access, quality and delivery.
“With physicians caring for patients across three counties in locations ranging from cities to the suburbs, the ability to view a holistic clinical summary of a patient’s current and past condition, as well as medications, tests, hospital or specialist visits, is a real game changer,” said Dr. Karna Patel, vice president of Tampa General Medical Group. “Complete clinical information is available on a summary screen for chart preparation before an appointment, thereby reducing review time for the clinicians.”
Through its focus on driving innovation to deliver world-class care, Tampa General is a leader in medical advances, pioneering breakthrough treatments, conducting cutting-edge clinical research and training the next generation of health care professionals. Tampa General’s partnership with Navina will bring innovative technology to primary care physicians to better serve their growing patient populations.
“At Navina, we are passionate about improving the lives of physicians and patients, and to accomplish that we need extraordinarily committed partners like Tampa General,” said Ronen Lavi, Navina CEO and co-founder. “Tampa General is at the forefront of innovation. They actively seek new solutions because they recognize that data overload is a real burden plaguing our health care system, and they require technology like our AI platform to end the scourge of burnout leading to dangerous shortages and worsening health outcomes. We are privileged to be working with Tampa General to empower doctors to spend less time digesting data and more time interacting with the patients they care for.”
