AI in stroke: The real-world experience - Dr Kiruba Nagaratnam 18 Mar 2023

This talk took place on Day Two of the BIR and RCR's joint AI Annual conference 2022.


Introduction of e-stroke AI software in a district general hospital hyper-acute stroke pathway has demonstrated a significant reduction in patient turnaround time in the emergency department, which was reduced by more than 60 minutes, and a three-fold increase in the percentage of patients achieving independence after a severe stroke. This experience has paved the way for wide scale adoption of the technology. With the support of NHS England’s Accelerated Access Collaborative, e-stroke AI software has been deployed to more than 60 hospitals across five stroke networks in the UK, and benefits tens of thousands of patients. The real-world experience and early evaluation findings are discussed in the talk.
