deepc, a pioneering leader in AI-powered medical imaging solutions, is thrilled to announce its partnership with BT, the UK's leading provider of fixed and mobile telecommunications, secure digital products, and innovative services. With the aim to leverage deepc's cutting-edge AI platform to boost BT's digital health program for the NHS, the collaboration will ultimately address the pressing issue of patient wait times in the UK.
BT Group also provides managed telecommunications, security and network, and IT infrastructure services to customers across 180 countries.
deepc is a Radiology AI Platform that helps medical professionals access the clinical value of multiple AI tools quickly and safely via an AI marketplace. It integrates into any hospital environment, streamlining the curation and onboarding effort, and offering access to over 50 third-party best-in-breed AI solutions to enable adoption at scale. deepc can onboard AI tech into NHS hospitals that might otherwise typically be overlooked due to their geographic location. AI allows doctors to see more patients and address the existing backlog. The adoption of AI in Radiology and Pathology is increasing, helping to address the current skills shortage.
Professor Sultan Mahmud says: “Offering faster diagnosis and helping reduce waiting times, our new digital diagnostics and AI services are designed to help ease some of the pressures facing doctors and nurses today. It’s part of our commitment to stand alongside the NHS, working with clinicians to help more UK trusts reap the benefits of the latest technology – helping them do more with digital, without increasing their already heavy workload.”
Dr. Paul Bhogal, Consultant Interventional Neuroradiologist and member of BT’s Clinical Advisory Board, added: “When we talk about the need to bring new technology to the NHS, we’re not talking about replacing doctors and nurses. We’re talking about taking tools that are already a part of everyday life elsewhere and using them to make things quicker and easier for patients. BT’s new digital diagnostics and AI collaborations will not only help connect NHS clinicians with patients faster and more efficiently, they can also help with upskilling and knowledge sharing, to plug some of the gaps where healthcare services need it most.”
