SapienSecure Selected For Inaugural Focus Fund
January 26, 2023
SapienSecure, the medical software platform that indexes, de-ID's, extracts, and dashboards medical data across hundreds of hospital database systems, is thrilled to announce their selection to the INOVAIT Focus Fund. SapienSecure will support Altis Labs, Inc. in their initiative focused on fully automating imaging biomarkers for solid state tumors using deep learning. We will be collaborating with Bayer Canada, BC Cancer, Sunnybrook Research Institute, Trillium Health Partners, University of Calgary, and University Health Network.
Fund investment supports three-year projects at the intersection of advanced imaging, minimally-invasive surgery and artificial intelligence.
“We are thrilled to announce our selection to the inaugural Focus Fund,” says Scott Holmes, CEO of SapienSecure. “The Focus Fund investment will help elevate the important work we are doing at SapienSecure and we are honored to be selected.” SapienSecure combines the experience of medical practitioners and artificial intelligence to power Data Extraction, Classification, Discovery, and On-Premise de-identification for the purpose of enabling efficiency and secondary use commercialization.
The technologies selected for the Focus Fund have the potential to greatly improve patient outcomes and reduce the overall cost of healthcare in Canada. The Focus Fund contributions will help attract investments into Canadian technology companies, create jobs for highly-qualified personnel, and transform our country’s IGT sector into a global leader.
The Focus Fund investment will support three-year commercialization-focused R&D projects. These innovations will use advances in data sciences and artificial intelligence to enhance image guidance and corresponding therapies.
Sapien Machine Learning Corporation, founded 2019, develops healthcare intelligence enterprise software for managing en-masse medical data across numerous healthcare systems. SapienSecure’s proprietary AI-models (AI, NLP + NLU) cast a broad net across hospital database systems at-source for the highest compliance, extraction and de-Identification for critical R&D, operational efficiencies and real-time visibility into population data that resides within the hospital or clinical system. SapienSecure supports even the most challenging imaging and unstructured data, while automating the collection, curation, and categorization of medical datasets for intelligent research and discovery; unlocking value without the need of replacing existing software or systems.
INOVAIT is a pan-Canadian network funded by the Government of Canada and hosted at the Sunnybrook Research Institute with the objective of building a truly integrated image-guided therapy ecosystem, fueling continuous innovation that revolutionizes healthcare globally. Through connecting, educating, and investing in the industry’s brightest minds and most promising ventures, INOVAIT will support and encourage collaborative development and the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) into medical technologies.
Funding for this project was provided in part by INOVAIT through the Government of Canada's Strategic Innovation Fund.
