Iterative Health and Gastro Health have formed a partnership to integrate Iterative Health’s AI-driven gastroenterology technology into Gastro Health’s endoscopy centers nationwide. The collaboration aims to standardize GI care across various demographics and conditions. Jonathan Ng, the founder of Iterative Health, was inspired to bridge the gap in medical training across countries after witnessing disparities in Cambodia. The company’s AI technology, designed to standardize the interpretation of visual health data, recently received FDA clearance for its ability to detect suspicious polyps during colonoscopies. Their Skout system can identify over two dozen clinical features in real-time, including inflammation and ulcers. Partnering with Gastro Health allows Iterative Health to enhance its machine learning system with diverse data inputs. This collaboration also boosts Gastro Health’s research capabilities, especially in the area of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The partnership aims to standardize endoscopic scoring, improve patient selection for clinical trials, and pave the way for advancements in GI care and precision medicine. Gastro Health, with its presence in seven states, recently announced other collaborations and acquisitions, while Iterative Health has secured $195 million in funding to date.
