Enabling the Empathy Economy

Our secured and accredited H.M. Government AI service can be used by clinicians to support the patient and their family during the period from assessment to clinical intervention.

Why the contribution is important

The clinicians we are working with have assessed that they would obtain the ethical clearance to implement this AI Service in their NHS Trust and we have a cohort of patients where we could immediately support with this innovation in the provision of a self care mental health clinical pathway. We also have research facilities which can understand this new clinical provision in the context of the wider mental health clinical provisions in the NHS. However we need to secure funding to run this new service in this world leading  NHS Trust. All current NHS funding we have attempted to access is opposed to funding an initiative which does not use the current consumption (rather than self care) approach to clinical care. I have previously scaled technology innovations across the entire NHS estate with the support of clinicians from across the NHS. However current funding allocations for innovations in the NHS are not clinically driven. In the meantime the incidence of self harm and suicide in young men in particular continues to rise. We term these young people the “invisible patients”, as the consequences of this outdated approach in the NHS to Mental Health is visible to only the clinicians and the families of these young people.
