Oxford, UK: Sensyne Health plc (LSE: SENS), (“Sensyne Health” or “the Company”), the British clinical AI technology company, today announced it has signed agreements with a Fortune 200 company and a data infrastructure specialist to launch and scale its digital health products under licence in the U.S.
The initial focus will be on taking Sensyne Health’s gestational diabetes product, GDm-Health, to the U.S. market. With nearly 10 percent of pregnancies in the U.S. affected by GDM every year, Sensyne Health’s product can dramatically change the way this treatable condition is diagnosed and managed by doctors and their patients. This will be followed by Sensyne Health’s chronic disease products for respiratory, EDGE, and cardiovascular, Support-HF.
As part of these agreements, Sensyne Health will be developing Clinical AI-as-a-service solutions that will use artificial intelligence (AI) and predictive analytics to help prevent and manage a variety of chronic health conditions.
Sensyne Health collaborates with the U.K.’s National Health Service (NHS) to develop and scale digital health applications that employ AI and anonymised patient data to detect warning signs for various clinical conditions. The first solution, GDm-Health, is in production in the U.K. and is currently being beta-tested in the U.S. by the Fortune 200 Company and a major regional healthcare network. GDm-Health gives patients greater insight into their personal health data, offers expectant mothers diagnosed with GDM greater control over the management of their condition and gives clinicians valuable insight to more efficiently and proactively manage care. To date, clinical trial data in the U.K. has shown that GDm-Health improves diagnosis and treatment, leading to improved outcomes for mothers and their babies¹.
While initially focused on GDM, the three companies plan to continue to expand Clinical-AI-as-a-Service offerings to include other medical conditions via a compliant, secure, cloud-based service that safeguards patient privacy. More information on this new partnership will be announced at the time of its official launch.
“We are delighted that this innovative trans-Atlantic relationship will lead to the expansion of our digital healthcare applications to U.S. patients and providers,”
said Lord (Paul) Drayson, CEO of Sensyne Health plc.
“By working with these partners, we will be able to accelerate the full potential of these applications which were originally invented in the NHS. We are also delighted that these major agreements mark the completion of the last remaining milestone objective that we set at the time of our IPO in August 2018. All our objectives set at that time have now been achieved.”
