(ASX: VHT), a global leader in software for the early detection and prevention of cancer, will be joined by a new technical partner LehYup LLC at the Annual Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) meeting, November 26-29, 2023 (South Hall, Booth #2780).

LehYup staff are available to augment existing Volpara customer IT teams with dedicated staff able to work across Epic modules to reduce incomplete or fractured workflows and improve data management, interdepartmental coordination/communication, and program performance analytics.
“Healthcare networks excel at providing diagnostic testing with advanced technologies. Well trained and dedicated physicians, nurses, and technicians deliver patient care with empathy and compassion. IT teams within healthcare networks deliver amazing results while juggling conflicting priorities,” said Andy Lehman, co-founder, LehYup. “However, when it comes to creating and delivering a comprehensive cancer risk assessment program, healthcare networks typically need assistance to harness the full capabilities of their technology. Our technical services provide dedicated and experienced resources work as an extension of your team with a focus on your cancer screening and prevention initiatives.”
Volpara’s Risk Pathways® is market-leading breast cancer risk assessment software, which is currently used by more than 1,000 providers across the United States to perform more than 3 million risk assessments every year. It helps providers shed the one-size fits all approach to cancer screening by using their existing EHR such as Epic to assess a patient’s a risk of developing multiple forms of cancer—breast, ovarian, endometrial, pancreatic, and colorectal. This comprehensive cancer risk assessment software helps clinicians make better informed decisions for triaging patients to supplemental imaging and/or genetic testing based on their individual risk profile.
“We are committed to removing the roadblocks that are keeping clinicians from providing effective, personalized care. This partnership offers Volpara Risk Pathways customers a unique combination of resources to align the people, processes and technology needed to achieve their clinical, financial, and operational goals,” says Volpara CEO, Teri Thomas. “Volpara’s clinical program expertise and LehYup’s technical skills work together to enhance customer’s speed to market and ability to deliver on the promise of precision medicine, population health, and value-based care.”
