AI in Healthcare Video Series Part 2: Imaging and Vision for Tele-health and screening
When most people think about tele-health they think of video conferencing with a doctor – but tele-health is much more than that! Tele-health, increasingly referred to as Virtual Care, refers to a range of modes of delivering healthcare to people “where they are”, rather than having to meet in person. And increasingly it is so called “asynchronous” modes of delivery – where information is collected virtually and collated for review. This review step is increasingly occurring using AI technologies – allowing a much more timely response.
Our Perth based tele-health teams develop a range of tele-health technologies that enable information to be collected remotely and then sent to the medical team for review. An initial AI based review can enable prioritisation of the review by physicians, and increasingly might be relied upon to inform decision making.
Today in the second part of our AI in Healthcare Video series, we have three videos from our Perth based tele-health team:
- Mr Jana Vignarajan – giving an overview of the technology we build for our asynchronous tele-health healthcare
- Dr Sajib Saha – describing how we use deep learning to diagnose Age Related Macular degeneration
- Ms Maryam Mehdizadeh – describing our collaboration with the Lions Eye Institute to diagnose Stargardt diseas
Our Perth based scientists, Jana, Sajib and Maryam will be attending the AIDH Digital Health Summit in Perth on November 13 – they’d love to see you there!
