On the 17th December, VOH.CoLAB participated at the Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare: a perspective from Portugal, organized by EIT Health Portugal.

The event joined hospitals, tech companies and health-related entities to present innovative AI projects and initiatives in the national Health context.

Ana Rita Londral, our CEO, participated in the panel under the topic “How can Healthcare networks support AI innovation?“, presenting our mission, structure and collaborative partnerships.

On the Innovators Showcase session, Ana Rita talked about our on-going AI projects:

  • CardioFollow.AI: informed clinical decision-making through cardiothoracic surgery patients’ telemonitoring
  • FrailCare.AI: frailty prediction for the Portuguese elderly population

 

Main take-home message:

Worldwide, the increasing interest in the application of AI tools in Health is boosting its potential and helping to face current challenges. So, the 1-million-dollar question remains: are Health systems up to the task of integrating AI technology in current processes and digitalize their services to provide more efficient care chains?
