Assisting clinicians and improving patient outcomes through AI
Technology has been a key enabler in the transformation of healthcare. Areas like artificial intelligence, information & communication technology, connected medical devices and more, have all made significant contributions to improving the health of people all around the world.
Together with healthcare professionals, we are working to translate research into products that can improve current treatment options. Iota Medtech envisions a future where our product, iota ai platform, plays a significant role in assisting clinicians and improving patient outcomes.
In June 2019, we have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the National Neuroscience Institute (NNI) to develop a priority sorting system for brain scans for head injury patients.
