Inspirata to Present and Exhibit at the Fall Symposium of Cancer Informatics for Cancer Centers (CI4CC)

| October 24, 2017


Inspirata’s SVP of Cancer Informatics, Trevor Heritage, PhD, will present an overview of the company’s big data cancer initiative that has its origin in pathology and diagnostic images.

La Jolla, CA, October 23, 2017/Globe Newswire – Cancer informatics and digital pathology workflow solution provider Inspirata®, Inc. announced today that it will be exhibiting at the CI4CC Fall Symposium in La Jolla, CA Oct. 23-25. Inspirata’s Senior Vice President of Cancer Informatics, Dr. Trevor Heritage, will introduce Inspirata’s big data product vision during a presentation beginning at 11:30 on Monday, Oct. 23.

Dr. Heritage is responsible for leading the business strategy for Inspirata’s Cancer Information Data Trust (CIDT), which is a multi-institution, diagnostic image-anchored big data initiative. “The intent of the CIDT,” explains Dr. Heritage, “is to improve the diagnosis and treatment of cancer by providing stakeholders, such as clinicians, administrators, researchers, bio pharma scientists, patients and caregivers, with unique insights derived from longitudinal patient data ingested from multiple sources. We use our Natural Language Processing (NLP) engine, called CIDT.Structure, to structure data and ensure it is fully searchable and mineable. The result is a repository that can be used to inform cancer treatment options, provide prognostic information, generate patient cohorts, assist with cancer reporting, quantify costs and quality of care, and identify population health trends.”

Inspirata’s end-to-end digital pathology workflow solution is a fully managed service that enables academic medical centers and cancer centers to assemble repositories of diagnostic images and clinical data to fuel their clinical, research and educational missions. A digital pathology cockpit, provided to each of the partner institutions’ pathologists as part of the workflow solution, accesses data from disparate health information systems, giving the pathologist a comprehensive view of a patient’s clinical history and current case details, including the whole slide images of tissue samples from the biopsied tumor. Having this information at their fingertips, pathologists can more rapidly arrive at an accurate diagnosis.

“The institutions we partner with gain a two-fold advantage,” says Inspirata CEO Satish Sanan. “First, they can move to a digital pathology workflow without the upfront investment needed for the technology or the resources to operationalize it. We make that initial investment for them. And, second, our partner institutions will have their own versions of the CIDT, giving them much easier access to cancer data that was previously dispersed in siloed systems or unavailable except through manual abstraction.”
