AI tech that reduces clinical workload and hospital admissions launches at healthcare event
UK healthcare technology start-up Abtrace has launched a novel proactive monitoring system designed to empower patients with chronic conditions and reduce clinical workload for professionals at Arab Health 2022.
The innovative cloud-based software has been developed to track the conditions a patient has, the medications they take, and the tests they have done. It aims to improve the management of chronic conditions, enabling it to move from a reactive, to a proactive process informed by data.
Built by healthcare professionals, the software allows GPs and healthcare assistants to make informed decisions, automate key elements of disease monitoring, and ensure patients receive effective care. Thus, it reduces clinical workload and the administrative work needed to complete monitoring.
For patients, the unique technology helps to improve health, reducing death, disability and hospital admissions resulting from delayed and missed monitoring.
Used by NHS primary care health centres, the system has been shown to improve the care delivered to patients whilst reducing costs to the health system.
Dr Umar Naeem Ahmad, Abtrace CEO, said: “Building on top of our integrated primary care product delivered to healthcare professionals, we are delighted to be launching a product to reach patients directly on their mobile devices. Patients will be able to see when they need to see their doctor for routine tests, and have overdue tests flagged for action.
“By putting the patient at the heart of the product, we aim to inform and empower the patient with the knowledge in a simple, accessible and clear format they can use to take control of their health. We look forward to joining the ABHI UK Pavilion at Arab Health 2022 to showcase how it can support patients globally.”
The Abtrace team has spent three years building state-of-the-art algorithms and connecting into existing healthcare systems to achieve UKCA and CE mark for the product as a certified medical device.
Abtrace’s new software has been developed as an intelligent platform on top of Electronic Health Records systems enabling actions based on an individual’s medical history in the context of a wider pool of data points validated against NHS-approved clinical guidelines.
Arab Health 2022 is taking place from 24-27 January 2022 at the Dubai World Trade Centre. Throughout the show, Abtrace is located on the ABHI UK Pavilion – Hall 2 H2. H50.
