GEM was founded as a Management School for Technology and Innovation. Today, as a Business lab for society, we couldn’t pass up the chance to participate in Europe’s biggest Innovation and Entrepreneurship event.

GEM will present its courses and talents in the fields of Management of Technology, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, among them some of our very own students and alumni…

Meet Julien Vidal, GEM ESC 2018 and CEO & Cofonunder of AZmed :

AZmed’s mission is to automate basic diagnostics and reporting in order to allow radiologists to concentrate on tasks where they bring real added value.  

The company is currently developing highly sensitive deep learning algorithms to assist radiologists in their diagnostics,  

This technology allows doctors to reduce medical errors and save time by helping them analyze medical images in order to spot any abnormalities in X-rays, which can be difficult for overworked doctors to detect when they are constantly under pressure to quickly give results.

Two tech innovations 

Through tech development, the company plans to rely heavily on artificial intelligence and deep learning in order to: 

  • Facilitate radiology services in hospital emergency rooms by ensuring pretreatment of traumas and reducing the wait time for results through automated reports 
  • Increase treatment quality by freeing up time for physicians to interact with their patients. This is an opportunity for medical staff, who often feel like nothing more than technical operators, to fully practice their careers. 
  • Allow researchers and radiologists to detect patterns in complex data thanks to medical imaging. The technology is capable of recognizing subtle tendencies that would otherwise be outside the scope of doctors due to human error. This new information will be key in preventing diagnostic errors and will greatly add to knowledge about the patient's trauma. 

This solution will help physicians make clinical decisions faster and with better accuracy with the help of computer reports that reduce superfluous variations. The technology improves productivity and helps radiologists manage their workload all while improving patient results. 

Faced with high expectations for efficiency and productivity, the AZmed offers an indisputable solution for increased productivity who will be able to concentrate fully on the core of their career: improving each individual patient outcome by using data to their maximum potential.
