KTN seeks Scottish SME's for AI & ICT in healthcare challenge
KTN is offering innovative SME’s the opportunity to work with real NHS data and help solve challenges in healthcare systems.
Please note : The close date for application questionnaire submission is 23rd July and the KTN hope to be advising the successful idea owners within two weeks of that date of the outcome.
KTN is working with partners from NHS Grampian, Academia and Industry to explore the innovation landscape around the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and related technologies to modernise how both patient and clinician experience healthcare. We see this as including (but not being limited to): machine learning, data analytics, virtual reality and user experience/design. We are also looking at the wider implications of AI to research and drug discovery.
This item focusses on the ‘ICT’ aspects. Here’s why:
Outside of screening programs and public health initiatives, the majority of health care systems rely on the presentation of the citizen to the healthcare system with symptoms of one kind or another. The determination of the importance of these symptoms and the need for further medical investigation relies heavily on the patient-clinician interaction at appointments where clinical data is captured, decisions made on further investigation and information regarding this conveyed to the patient.
