NHSx and Kheiron Medical

Working together for better patient outcomes

The UK’s National Health Service is one of the most revered and respected healthcare systems in the world.

And now, central to its efforts to roll out digital transformation across healthcare, it has NHSx – a joint unit of NHS England and the Department of Health and Social Care. NHSx is propelling the use of promising AI technologies, and giving digital innovators the opportunity to run large trials across dozens of NHS trusts to prove the effectiveness of their solutions.

We’re working closely with the NHSx AI lab and the Accelerated Access Collaborative (AAC) to accelerate the development and use of Mia® – and we’ll be screening more than half a million women over the next three years across 15 NHS sites. It’s an exciting and collaborative partnership that will transform patient care and outcomes, and make the UK a global leader in this space.

Engaging patients and the public

Patient and public involvement forms an integral part of our NHSx work. Building on our previous research into the attitudes and beliefs of women towards AI, we will work alongside patients and the public at each of the NHS sites participating in the AI in Health and Care Award to understand how best to inform, educate and reassure women.
