Health Navigator at the King’s Fund

On 16th October 2019, Health Navigator attended an event hosted by the King’s Fund. Entitled “Emerging Technologies: what does the future of health care look like?”, the show was an excellent opportunity for Health Navigator to showcase our AI-guided service which predicts and prevents avoidable urgent and emergency care. We met many potential NHS partners and other serious players in the digital health space.

Health Navigator combines powerful artificial intelligence with a nurse-led telephone coaching service. Delegates we met from the NHS were interested to know more about our results from our RCT in Vale of York, which has recently been featured in the media. The interim results from our Vale of York deployment have demonstrated a 34.1% reduction in A&E attendances, 23.7% reduction in non-elective spells, and 24.1% reduction in electives.

A major theme of the discussions hosted at the event was how to move AI from research into practical application. As Health Navigator is live, using AI to identify high-intensity users of A&E services at 7 NHS sites, we were very happy to share our experience of real-world NHS deployments. Also of interest were discussions about how we integrate with local NHS data.

There were many new contacts and old friends at the event, and we look forward to following-up with everyone. Thanks to the King’s Fund for organising a fantastic event.
