 AI helps treat stroke: three times as many patients recover

Artificial intelligence has tripled the number of people who have recovered from a stroke. The experiment, which is ongoing in the UK, has shown promising results.

The UK government has announced that the NHS is using a new artificial intelligence system called Brainomix e-Stroke to help patients recover.
< br />Preliminary analysis shows that AI can help patients receive treatment 60 minutes faster, and the number of patients recovering with no or minor disability has increased from 16% to 48%.

With Brainomix e-Stroke, clinicians receive real-time decision support from AI that analyzes brain scans and suggests the right treatment based on the time since the stroke. The software also allows doctors to remotely access scans and images so they can provide care even remotely.

The AI ​​system has been deployed at 11 stroke facilities. With its help, more than 4,500 cases have been confirmed. The Brainomix e-Stroke is especially useful for rapid diagnosis, as the sooner help is given, the better the patient's chance of recovery.

“Every minute saved in the initial hospital evaluation of people with stroke-like symptoms, can greatly increase a patient's chances of leaving the hospital in good health. The NHS harnesses the power of artificial intelligence to support expert staff in delivering life-saving care to patients with diverse needs, – says NHS Transformation Director Dr. Timothy Ferris.

To date, government funding for the Brainomix electronic stroke diagnosis system has helped treat 111,000 patients with suspected stroke across England.
