Edge Health has been featured in the AHSN network’s ‘state of the nation’ report on the use of AI in health and care.
The AHSN Network represents 15 Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs) across England that were established in 2013 to spread innovation at pace and scale. In September this year, the ASHN published its report “Accelerating Artificial Intelligence in health and care: results from a state of the nation survey” with fore word from Matt Hancock, the Secretary of State for the Department of Health and Social Care, and Lord O’Shaughnessy, the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State Department of Health and Social Care.
The report looks at the opportunity for AI to support and drive change in health and care, and includes a selection of case studies where AI is being used successfully. Space Finder, which was developed by Edge Health with South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is a featured case study.
Space Finder is an artificial intelligence solution developed by Edge Health/ South Tees Hospitals to help operating lists run more efficiently. Using predictive analytics, Space Finder creates optimal operating lists tailored to the surgeon, the patient and the operation.
