Distinct partnership. Distinct products. Distinct promise.
A joint venture between GE Healthcare and UPMC (University of Pittsburgh Medical Center), Omnyx is committed to transforming cancer care and empowering patient choice through advances in digital pathology.
|The two organizations began a two year collaboration process in 2006 and founded the company in 2008. During this time we worked with more than 30 thought leading pathologists from 13 academic medical centers and research laboratories around the globe–including hands-on input from UPMC pathologists. Additionally, we conducted extensive research with The Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University that closely studied pathologists’ processes, culture and information sources, along with interactions with peers and other hospital colleagues, including the interaction with and importance of the histology process. For nearly a decade, the Omnyx team has embodied a spirit of innovation and a commitment to achieving more inclusive, more effective patient care. Close collaboration with users and customers is part of our culture and is an important part of our ongoing innovation. This results in highly usable, intuitive solutions that provide performance benefits to pathologists and the entire care team.|
