A recent study found that artificial intelligence technology has tripled the amount of UK stroke patients who are capable of performing daily activities as a result of their recovery from stroke. AI-powered technology sees major updates in UK stroke treatment. Researchers found that by using the technology, over 111,000 guess stroke patients had a reduction of over 60 minutes between being notice by a doctor and starting treatment. According to the Brainomix e-Stroke imaging platform analysis, the percentage of patients who were able to resume daily activities increased from 16 to 48%. Eleven stroke treatment networks within the UK’s state-funded NHS are using a med-tech solution developed by a UK-based company.
Doctors can use the platform remotely to access brain scan images and interpret them based on their interpretation. In a statement, UK health secretary Steve Barclay said AI could transform the NHS by delivering faster, more accurate diagnoses and ensuring patients receive treatment when they need it. Dr Timothy Ferris, the NHS England director of Transformation, said the treatment exploits AI’s potential to help healthcare professionals deliver life-changing care. He noted that every minute saved during the initial hospital assessment of patients with stroke-like symptoms will dramatically improve their chance of a successful recovery.
