Next-generation healthcare IT leader Kanteron Systems has agreed to allow the NHS free access to Kanteron's medical imaging and genomic data integration platform, under the custodianship of an NHS clinically-led community in the Apperta Foundation.

Kanteron Systems' integrated platform allows doctors to connect existing information silos like radiology images and studies, pathology WSI and reports, genomic sequences, pharmacogenomic databases, and biosensor data, in a single point of access.

The platform, which runs on Azure or on-prem, is being used in 15 countries for many purposes, like adverse medication event prevention, pre-operative genomic screening, medical trial cohort selection, or establishing telemedicine networks.

This agreement will also allow the NHS to enhance the platform with new software components. Kanteron Systems will provide implementation, integration, and support services through certified partners, like Microsoft Azure, Hitachi, IBM, and CGI.
