The system is now being used by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence in the U.K., which provides health care delivery guidance across the U.K. National Health Service (NHS) for more than 65 million people. It will directly speed up adoption of new health care interventions at national and international scale, for example, by facilitating the clearing of new drugs for widespread use across the NHS. The result is that decisions about which interventions are best will be faster and more reliable, thanks to the intelligent cloud.
Noel-Storr is excited by the prospect of democratizing AI for health, and how it can augment what people can achieve. “I think what excites me most about this work is that it is about exploring where those boundaries lie between what the machine can do and what the human can do…. so that we can then better direct human effort where it’s most needed.”
