ORLANDO, Fla.--()--NantHealth, Inc. (NASDAQ-GS: NH), a next-generation, evidence-based, personalized healthcare company, announced today that Patrick Soon-Shiong, MD, has been chosen to keynote at the Intelligent Health™ Pavilion during the HIMSS 2017 Annual Conference & Exhibition in Orlando, Florida. Dr. Soon-Shiong will introduce the NantDaVinci Cancer Engine, an augmented intelligence processor integrated into a secure terabit per second fiber network that rapidly analyzes genomes within a patient’s cancer tumor. The keynote will take place on Monday, February 20, at 10:30 a.m. ET at booth 8361.

The presentation, “Unlocking the Code with the NantDaVinci Cancer Engine” will unveil how NantHealth has been leveraging advancements in supercomputing, augmented intelligence, machine vision, machine learning and natural language processing to identify and read the unique biological signature inside each cancer tumor and how that code can be unlocked to create a truly personalized treatment and a cancer vaccine.

To date, the NantDaVinci Supercomputing Engine has successfully completed analyses of more than 21,000 cancer tissue samples analyzed for whole genome, whole exome and RNA from more than 7,000 unique patients with multiple tumor types—and with the world's largest database of human cancer whole genomes— has enabled the discovery of novel neoepitopes in cancer tissue for the development of neoepitope antibodies and vaccines in the war against cancer. Over 100 seminal patents have been issued covering this integrated augmented, amplified and adaptive intelligence platform.
