AI Connect enables the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) into existing radiology workflows..

AI Connect enables the integration of artificial intelligence into existing radiology workflows.

Our integration gateway provides healthcare organisations with a simple route to AI adoption, enabling multiple algorithms to be embedded within existing workflows. We enable AI providers to connect their algorithms with existing healthcare systems and working processes, addressing the technical challenges, to clear the way for accelerated rollout.

As the leading provider of Radiology Information Systems to the NHS, we are also able to advise on key aspects of workflow integration, giving both healthcare organisations and AI providers guidance on the practical applications of AI.

We already have ‘live’ NHS projects incorporating one or more AI algorithms. These have been seamlessly integrated into existing radiology workflow alongside our own RIS and 3rd party RIS systems.

Radiology AI at Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust

AI Connect has already been used to accelerate the introduction of radiology AI at Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust, where our AI Connect gateway has been deployed to integrate Behold.ai’s red dot prioritisation platform for CXR, with Dartford’s existing RIS and PACS systems.

New strategic partnerships and customer AI projects are in the pipeline and will be announced shortly.

 

The benefits of radiology workflow integration

“A key piece to the AI puzzle for Radiology is automating the pull and push of diagnostic images based on the required rules for the specific AI service. And then managing the results or insertion of the amended images back to the PACS. Our recent AI development for CXR with Behold.ai would not be as efficient if not for the Wellbeing Software AI Connect gateway. Wellbeing Software has proven themselves time and time again to be real digital partners across radiology, maternity and wider. Great to have an extended team we can rely on!”
Neil Perry, Associate Director Digital Transformation, Dartford & Gravesham NHS Trust

Introducing AI-enabled stroke diagnosis with Brainomix

The applications for AI Connect are endless. We are working with stroke imaging company Brainomix to accelerate the introduction of AI and deep learning into the clinical decision making process for ischemic stroke patients.
Brainomix’s E-ASPECT solution supports faster, more informed decisions by applying AI when assessing ischemic stroke damage. It interprets scans based on metrics drawn from over 150,000 images, sourced across 27 countries.

Why choose AI Connect?

Home to the most widely used RIS, we have access to a nationwide network of radiologists across more than 700 locations.

Trusted NHS Partner

With a presence in more than 75% of NHS organisations and specialist product development team, we are perfectly placed to integrate AI algorithms into existing IT setups.

Investing in product roadmap

We’re investing in new technology for greater AI adoption, interoperability and open standards in the NHS.

AI integration for healthcare organisations

Supporting AI adoption at your organisation

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is transforming the healthcare sector. However, AI algorithms are also highly complex and present significant differences to working practices in clinical settings. Finding an effective way of integrating AI into existing workflows is critical. This is especially important once plans progress beyond the adoption of a single algorithm, at which point it becomes necessary to ensure consistent processes are introduced to optimise adoption and usage.

We help healthcare organisations find a route to applied AI by supporting in the following areas.

Understanding workflow impact and objectives

Our experience as the leading provider of radiology information systems to the NHS enables us to provide advice when it comes to mapping your existing workflows, considering which will be affected by the introduction of AI algorithms, as well as those you actively want to be affected.

Supporting technical integration

Our expert team will help you assess your existing IT infrastructure and new requirements, including those related to AI application hosting, data security and compliance. Our AI gateway radically simplifies the technical integration process too, ensuring a quick and standardised route to AI adoption.

Determining the impact of AI

It is important to continuously evaluative the impact an AI deployment is having on your radiology output. Our reporting expertise and RIS insight will provide your organisation with the tools needed to understand how AI is working at your organisation.

What AI Connect can do for your organisation

Simple AI adoption

The AI Connect gateway enables the adoption of different AI applications within your existing reporting workflow, using a standardised approach, from the UK’s most trusted RIS supplier and healthcare integration experts.

A technology independent platform

AI Connect allows you to embed algorithms from a variety of AI providers and can be integrated with any RIS or PACS. The adoption of a single gateway reduces technical complexity and speed of deployment and supports user familiarity when utilising multiple algorithms.

Fully integrated AI

In a recent survey of our UK customer base, 85% of respondents highlighted the advantages of AI integration within RIS workflows. AI Connect offers a seamless user experience, with the advantage of report prioritisation and critical results notification.

AI integration for AI providers

Supporting AI providers

AI algorithms need to integrate with both the working practices of a healthcare organisation’s practitioners and teams, and the technological workflows that underpin them. This is especially important once plans progress beyond the adoption of a single algorithm, at which point it becomes necessary to ensure consistent processes are introduced to optimise adoption and usage.

As the leading provider of radiology information systems to the NHS, we offer unrivalled support to AI providers looking to see their technology adopted as quickly as possible. This includes support in the following areas.

Identifying an algorithm use case

Using AI algorithms to support standardised workflows that already exist across the NHS is the best strategy for providers looking to see their technology adopted quickly. Our experienced team can help you identify the best use case for your algorithm, using unrivalled knowledge of existing radiology workflows.

Providing access to the UK’s largest radiology network

We provide healthcare technology to over 80 % of NHS organisations and are the leading provider of Radiology Information Systems in the UK. Access to this network can greatly increase the speed at which AI providers can introduce their technology to healthcare organisations.

Understanding the impact of your algorithm

The impact of your algorithm is likely to go far beyond its basic capabilities and will result in a positive ‘heat map’ across an organisation. Our understanding of radiology reporting can help you demonstrate the effect AI is having at an organisation and promote further adoption.

What AI Connect Can do for You

Simplified technical integration

The use of a pre-installed gateway reduces the technical complexity associated with workflow integration for AI providers, increasing speed and rate of deployment, while maintaining user familiarity

Complete RIS and PACS compatibility

Our AI connect gateway works with any RIS or PACS, ensuring you can connect your algorithm with all healthcare organisations, in a standardised way, regardless of the technology they use
