This partnership will bring AI solutions to Emergent Connect’s imaging cloud customer base, allowing AI to be more easily accessible to its clients.
Emergent Connect manages millions of imaging records per year and helps thousands of healthcare professionals across hospitals, imaging centers and clinics provide the best patient care possible.

This is the first time Lunit is collaborating with an online cloud-based PACS company.
“We are excited to partner with the Lunit team and to execute on the vision of providing our clients with the very best workflow around AI over our cloud based solutions. The prospect of running Lunit’s solutions on our medical exams is an exciting opportunity for both our radiologists as well as the patients we serve across the country,” says Mike Spears, co-founder & EVP of Emergent Connect.
