Signet Accel, Nutonian and RoundTower Technologies Ally to Deliver Accelerated Time to Value in Healthcare Data

Signet Accel
Posted on: 22 Sep 16

Signet Accel, a software and services company specializing in data integration and harmonization, today announced an alliance with machine intelligence company Nutonian and systems integrator RoundTower Technologies. Organizations can now achieve true interoperability and accelerate the time to value of their data with Signet Accel’s Avec®, a database-agnostic federated data integration platform purpose-built to serve the healthcare industry, and Nutonian’s Eureqa®, the A.I.-powered “Virtual Data Scientist” application that automates the creation and interpretation of predictive models. RoundTower Technologies packages the solution and delivers it to healthcare customers.

“There’s nothing in the industry that does what we do together. We’re connecting data as it is and where it is into a clean, searchable stream of information, and Eureqa takes that raw data and makes it actionable much faster than ever thought possible,” said Signet Accel CEO John Raden. “The healthcare industry is drowning in a sea of data and analytics, and spending far too much time sifting through options hoping one will provide value faster than another. I can confidently say the wait is over—Avec and Eureqa together are ideally positioned to change the face of precision medicine.”

Avec connects and harmonizes disparate databases across organizations and geographic locations, allowing researchers to access the complete picture of their data and identify patterns and trends across a large patient population. Eureqa industrializes data science and finds meaning, causation and correlation in an organization’s large amounts of data, offering comprehensive insight into both research and treatment. The two combined enable increased efficacy in clinical trials and offer prescriptive solutions at a per-patient level, at an accelerated rate.

“These applications together allow us to dramatically increase speed to discovery while also creating a prescriptive methodology,” said Scott Howser, executive vice president at Nutonian. “Avec provides a transparent means to aggregate, normalize and create a single-paned view of disparate data sources. Eureqa can then quickly and accurately model that data and provide solutions. It’s the consumer that ultimately wins in the work and endeavors we’re pursuing here.”

RoundTower Technologies has begun offering the combined solution to the healthcare industry, to a positive response.

“We simplify and find complete solutions for our customers, we don’t just bring them parts,” said Andy Stein, vice president of sales and business development at RoundTower Technologies. “This alliance allows us to present a complete healthcare customer solution that offers immediate impact. Our customers spend years trying to aggregate and cleanse data and Avec makes that process seamless, completing it in weeks. The next step—extracting value from that data—takes months and years. Eureqa’s A.I. finds meaning in the data within minutes to hours. These two platforms are the best we’ve seen in the market and together, they are unmatched.”
