The leading data management platform for medical research and collaboration, Flywheel, has announced a partnership and licensing agreement with Siemens Healthineers. Through this agreement, Flywheel will provide a digital health platform that is built on the Siemens Healthineers teamplay platform. Siemens Healthineers and many of its international academic and research partners will use teamplay collaboration solutions to share data, algorithms, and expertise to drive medical imaging innovation beginning in North America.

Travis Richardson, Chief Product Officer, Flywheel, said, “Based on our Flywheel solution, Siemens Healthineers is taking a big step forward in transforming healthcare research collaboration. We are excited to partner with the Siemens Healthineers team to provide the critical technology for such an important project.”

As a leading technology innovator, Siemens Healthineers’ teamplay digital health platform makes use of cloud technology and its extensive network of customers and partners to drive innovative healthcare solutions. As a result of Siemens Healthineers’ combined research and collaboration solution, their collaboration teams will be able to streamline communication, data sharing, and solution development with their research partners.

Arthur Kaindl, Executive VP of Magnetic Resonance, said, “The Business Line Magnetic Resonance (MR) at Siemens Healthineers works with hundreds of collaboration partners worldwide. That’s the reason why we initiated the project. We are excited to partner with Flywheel for the Siemens Healthineers imaging collaboration project. Flywheel provides a unique solution that addresses the challenges of multi-institutional healthcare research collaboration at scale. With the Flywheel solution built on the teamplay digital health platform, we are able to offer an exciting new suite of capabilities that will help Siemens Healthineers and our partners work together to advance medical imaging.”

Healthcare innovation is becoming increasingly dependent upon data and interdisciplinary collaboration. By utilizing Siemens Healthineers’ teamplay digital health platform, the Flywheel solution offers a scalable, secure, and collaborative method for conducting imaging and other healthcare-related research.

This solution enables streamlined data sharing, automation of analytic processes, and uses quality control and annotation workflows to provide curation tools for machine learning and advanced analytical analysis. As part of the teamplay platform, extensive tools are available that adhere to data privacy and regulation standards.
