Wavelength Connect 2020: Inside the Brand 3

Inside Babylon Health

For our third Inside the Brand, we will be joined by Dr. Umang Patel, Director, NHS Services, Babylon Health and Sultan Mahmud, Director of Integration, Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust

This super high-growth start-up, founded in 2013, is one of the world’s fastest growing health tech’s start-ups with 1,300 employees and a multibillion-dollar valuation. Babylon Health has put AI, voice and data at the heart of its operations to provide the world’s best digital healthcare platform.

Babylon Health have developed a smartphone app, known as GP at Hand, which uses AI in the form of a chatbot to triage, diagnose, and link the patient with a GP for a consultation. In the healthcare space, it is one of the world’s most disruptive organisations - boasting four million users (patients) worldwide. It became the UK's fastest ever growing NHS GP practice, and is ranked “outstanding” for leadership by the regulator.

In partnership with the NHS, Babylon Health proved that a digital-first primary care model can improve accessibility to 24/7 and reduce waiting times from days and weeks to minutes and hours.

The platform is increasingly being utilised during the COVID-19 crisis providing up to date information, access to trusted test kits and on-hand experts to talk to people who suspect they have contracted the virus – all through their app.

Umang and Sultan will share how digital and AI have transformed the health care experience for patients - Babylon Health's technology and proposition could not be more relevant in today’s climate.
