A new press release reports, “Sensyne Health, the British Clinical AI technology company, today announces a three-year collaboration with the University of Oxford’s Big Data Institute (BDI) to establish a world-leading research alliance to develop and evaluate the use of clinical artificial intelligence (clinical AI) and digital technology to understand the complexities of chronic disease. No financial terms were disclosed. Initially the collaboration will focus on chronic kidney disease and cardiovascular disease, diseases with significant and growing burdens on society with the potential for the discovery and development of new medicines and improved pathways of patient care within the NHS. The programme may extend into other chronic diseases in the future.”
The release continues, “The three-year research programme will draw on BDI’s expertise in population health, clinical informatics and machine learning and will be facilitated by access to anonymised longitudinal datasets for those patients in the NHS Trusts which builds on Sensyne Health’s existing capabilities through its Clinical AI and Strategic Research Agreements, as well as the data generated by Sensyne’s digital health applications for the management of chronic disease. It will also draw on the expertise of researchers in the Institute of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Oxford in developing technology for collecting clinical-grade healthcare data at scale. The research will focus on two major elements to derive new datasets that capture vital information from patient-clinician consultations during long-term management of chronic disease. This work will facilitate the use of clinical AI to understand the complexities of chronic disease and hence derive insights to accelerate drug discovery and development and improve pathways of patient care.”
