Mindwave partners with Medwise.ai to create question answering platform for health care professionals during COVID-19

Mindwave has partnered with Accelerate Cambridge and DigitalHealth. London launchpad company Medwise.ai to launch an AI-powered platform that answers COVID-19 questions for healthcare professionals. 

The start-up was selected from over 8600 applicants to receive funding by the UK government, as part of its £40 million investment to boost cutting-edge technological advances, particularly as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Medwise.ai uses natural language processing technology to help clinicians find answers faster than ever before. The artificial intelligence platform aggregates information from academic journal articles and national guidelines to provide healthcare professionals with the latest information on COVID-19 in a fast and concise format. 

A beta version of the platform has launched for public testing and the service will be free to NHS workers. 

The free, not-for-profit service will be available to anyone working in the health sector including junior doctors, GPs, hospital workers and clinicians working outside of their specialist areas.

The Mindwave Ventures team will work with Medwise.ai to further improve the design, performance and scalability of the platform.

Dr. Keith Tsui, CEO and co-founder of Medwise.ai said: “Although the number of new COVID-19 cases and the number of deaths is falling in the UK, the knowledge we have about the virus and the disease keeps increasing and it’s nearly impossible to keep up with the latest developments. We need to equip health care workers with the latest evidence and guidance, so COVID-19 patients get the best care possible. 

“We are very grateful to be funded by Innovate UK and to work with Mindwave Ventures and our other partners who have made the launch possible. We encourage as many professions to use the platform as possible as this will allow more data to be gathered, which will allow improvements to both the AI algorithm and the user interface.”

Dr. Victoria Betton, CInO at Mindwave Ventures said: “The global pandemic has created an urgency to get the most up to date evidence fast. With advice and guidelines changing so quickly as the medical world learns more about the virus, it is important that health professionals can make sense of it to work as effectively as possible. We are thrilled to partner with Medwise.ai and help create an innovative and useful digital health platform”.
