Scottish digital transformation consultancy Storm ID has been successful in the latest round of the ‘Artificial Intelligence in Health and Care Award’, for a service which uses artificial intelligence to help patients with COPD (Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease).
The Artificial Intelligence in Health and Care Award recognises the world class data science work undertaken to date by the project team. We look forward to working with the NHS to operationalise the use of AI driven personalised risk prediction scores within clinical practice, to ultimately help patients with COPD.
Paul McGinness, Co-founder and Director at Storm ID.
We’re really pleased to have been successful in the latest round of Artificial Intelligence in Health and Care Award. COPD is a global healthcare challenge and managing it has become even more challenging with the COVID-19 pandemic. The COPD digital service we’ve developed has helped reduce that pandemic impact, with a positive impact on patient care and outcomes. This award will allow us to bring the exciting innovations – AI insights - that we’ve developed in the research environment through into clinical practice. The evaluations that this award will allow us to undertake will let us gather the evidence about how best to use these AI insights to support people with COPD and their clinical teams to co-manage their condition.
Dr Chris Carlin, Clinical Lead of Dynamic Scot and Consultant Respiratory Physician, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.
The award allows the Dynamic Scot team to continue to transform COPD care in Scotland and share the digital service with the rest of the UK and worldwide. Artificial Intelligence embedded clinical decision support delivered to COPD patients will, we hope to demonstrate, enhance care for this group of patients but also provide a template for future work in other clinical areas such as heart failure and the challenges of an ageing population. Robust evaluation of data driven strategies such as AI will enable the NHS to streamline adoption giving confidence to both patients and clinicians ensuring engagement and realisation of the benefits of innovation within the NHS.
Dr David Lowe, Co-Clinical Lead of Dynamic Scot and Consultant Emergency Medicine, West of Scotland Innovation Lead NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.
It is fantastic seeing Storm ID’s success in the Artificial Intelligence in Health and Care Award, run by the Accelerated Access Collaborative in partnership with NHSX and the National Institute for Health Research. The award demonstrates Storm ID’s expertise in AI and in driving innovation in Health and Care. We have worked with Storm ID on several projects, and they excel in driving benefit for our Health and Care professionals and the patients they support. Driving innovative AI to improve diagnostics, patient care and treatment pathways is a very exciting opportunity. Scotland’s AI Strategy lays out how Trustworthy, Ethical and Inclusive AI can be used to improve the lives of the people of Scotland, so it is excellent to see Storm ID, a Scottish AI provider developing new solutions in Health and Care.”
