Tencent Announces AIMIS Medical Image Cloud and AIMIS Open Lab to Accelerate Medical AI and Enhance the Delivery of Healthcare Services
New offering will enhance medical imaging management by patients and sharing between healthcare professionals, driving the digital transformation of the world’s medical and healthcare industries. In conjunction with this offering, Tencent created the AI Open lab as a one-stop intelligent service platform to provide clinicians and technology enterprises with the necessary tools to handle critical medical data and diagnose patients.
Shanghai, China, Oct. 20, 2020 – Tencent announced two new products today that will enable consumers and medical professionals to safely and securely share medical data more easily, and equip medical professionals with new tools to diagnose patients and achieve better patient outcomes at the 83rd China International Medical Device Expo (CMEF). The Tencent AIMIS Medical Image Cloud will enable patients to manage their X-ray, CT, and MRI images and facilitate the safe and secure sharing of patient medical data. The Tencent AIMIS Open Lab will share Tencent’s medical AI capabilities with third parties, including scientific research institutions, universities, and scientific and technological innovation enterprises, to incubate AI medical applications.
Tencent AIMIS Image Cloud supports complete images on the cloud to reduce repeat examinations
It is often inconvenient and cumbersome for patients to manage their medical images and share them with medical professionals. Patients may not have complete medical information when they are speaking to a doctor, making it more difficult to support further diagnoses and often requires a patient to repeat an examination.
Patients can now safely manage their images via Tencent AIMIS Image Cloud, giving them full control to share original images and reports with the medical professionals they trust. Patients can manage their personal data, as well as authorize sharing and mutual recognition between hospitals all in one place, reducing the need for duplicate examinations and ensuring more efficient use of medical resources.

In addition, the Tencent AIMIS Image Cloud also connects medical institutions at all levels in the Medical Treatment Combination through Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) on the cloud, enabling patients to take examinations in primary medical institutions and obtain expert diagnosis remotely. Doctors can conduct online consultations through Tencent real-time audio and video facilities when they encounter difficult cases and work collaboratively on images to communicate more efficiently.
Tencent AIMIS Open Lab accelerates Incubation of medical AI application
In the field of medical AI, scientific research institutes, medical institutions, and technology startups are generally faced with pain points, such as a lack of data sources, time-consuming labeling, a lack of applicable algorithms, and difficulties meeting the required computing power. Tencent AIMIS Open Lab is a one-stop intelligent service platform grounded in secure storage and computing power from Tencent Cloud. Tencent AIMIS Open Lab provides clinicians and technology enterprises with comprehensive services such as data desensitization, access, annotation, the ability to model training, and testing. They can also develop medical AI applications more efficiently, which helps to develop the industry and bring benefits to more patients.
Tencent also announced an AI innovation competition aimed at medical institutions, universities, and technology startups. The competition invites clinicians to ask questions based on actual clinical application needs, and then invites teams to use digital technologies such as AI, big data, and cloud computing to overcome these medical challenges.
