Brainomix Awarded AI Grant


In September 2020, Brainomix were announced as winners of an Artificial Intelligence in Health and Care Award by Secretary of State for Health, Matt Hancock, at the Founders Forum HealthTech Summit in London, which includes a significant grant that will enable Brainomix to deploy its software, the e-Stroke Suite, across a number of UK stroke networks and evaluate its impact on stroke care across these regions.

Organised by the Accelerated Access Collaborative (AAC) in partnership with NHSX and the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), the awards are designed to accelerate the testing and evaluation of the most promising AI technologies which meet the strategic aims set out in the NHS Long Term Plan.

The e-Stroke Suite supports both specialist and non-specialist clinicians to interpret stroke brain scans in real-time, and to identify patients who need urgent treatments or transfer to a specialist hospital. Using the e-Stroke mobile app, doctors can then securely share brain scans with specialists at other hospitals, bringing expert decision making to all hospital Emergency Departments 24/7.
