Provation and Iterative Scopes Announce Exclusive Partnership

March 17, 2021

Collaboration seeks to advance artificial intelligence (AI) in gastroenterology (GI) and data-driven healthcare for better patient outcomes

Minneapolis, MN and Cambridge, MA (March 17, 2021) – Provation and Iterative Scopes announced today an exclusive partnership, bringing together the premier clinical productivity and gastroenterology (GI) documentation software provider with a leading startup in Artificial Intelligence (AI) for precision GI.

Through this partnership, the two companies are focused on delivering AI-based solutions to healthcare providers and life science researchers, including AI-assisted diagnostic tools, procedure documentation, and clinical trial recruitment.

One of the first initiatives under the partnership will be an AI-based patient recruiting solution for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients. This new recruitment method is expected to accelerate the time needed to bring new therapies to market, bypassing many of the problems pharmaceutical companies currently face.

“Our partnership with Iterative Scopes is a logical one. Provation is the market leader in GI documentation, with more than 3,500 customer facilities including 80% of the top academic and large health systems. Our IBD data can enable Iterative Scopes to facilitate clinical trial recruitment and deliver clinical endpoint evaluations to their pharmaceutical partners,” said Craig Moriarty, Provation Senior Vice President of Strategy and Product. “In addition, Iterative Scopes can bring its extensive AI toolkit to our GI documentation solutions, including Provation® Apex.”

The integration of these technology platforms will enable more efficient and accurate documentation of gastroenterology procedures benefiting physicians and the patients they serve. “I am thrilled to partner with Provation, to accelerate the adoption of AI into gastroenterology and to be able to learn from the deep expertise and trusted position Provation holds. We look forward to unlocking tremendous value for patients, physicians and life science partners.” said Jonathan Ng, CEO, Iterative Scopes.
