  2. #EdisonAccelerator www.edison-accelerator.com Mission GE Healthcare is a leading innovator enabling

    precision health by integrating clinical care and data across the patient journey via innovative products, digital tools and solutions that simplify decision-making, accelerate care delivery, and improve patient outcomes. We are accelerating the fourth industrial revolution of healthcare, but we can't do it alone. We strongly believe in the power of an integrated digital ecosystem leveraging new and legacy technologies with open innovation to enable healthcare resilience and organisational growth. Launched in 2021, the Edison™ Accelerator is a start-up acceleration & healthcare provider collaboration program in EMEA, designed by GE Healthcare in partnership with Wayra UK, Telefónica's Open Innovation Hub. Our mission is to build an ecosystem of healthcare providers, industry players and healthcare start-ups to develop, integrate and commercialize digital solutions to drive the digital transformation of healthcare. The first edition of the program was successfully completed in November 2021, with the second launching May 2022.

    Rekha Ranganathan Acting Chief Digital Officer GE Healthcare There is no way that one player can adequately address healthcare’s complex problems on its own. Innovation needs to be far more dynamic, nimble, and collaborative than in the past. The future of innovation will be about working across silos and collaborating across the healthcare ecosystem, including start-ups, corporates, research centers, hospitals, clinicians and patients. The opportunities for healthcare organizations with a truly intelligent connected digital enterprise are significant, but no one organization can get there alone. Edison Accelerator is bringing together leading technology providers, developers, and academic institutions under a single, connected ecosystem to create real impact from the bottom line to better patient outcomes. A collaborative ecosystem

  10. How to orchestrate Imaging AI to achieve broader adoption due

    to seamless integration, more efficiency and productivity? How do we use AI and digital technologies together to improve • access to diagnostic services • referral quality • patient prioritisation and • automation of operational processes i.e. scheduling in cancer diagnostic pathways? How can conversational AI platforms, NLP technology and digital PROMS/ PREMS tools help to analyse and visualise patient data to inform clinical decision making, treatment options and service operations. 2021 Program: tracks & use cases Accelerating Imaging AI adoption at scale Eliminating waste in the oncology care pathway with AI & Digital Technologies Democratizing cancer care: Putting the healthcare consumer front & central
  11. 2021 Program: tracks & use cases (Cambridge, UK): Lucida uses

    ML and radiogenomics to help identify cancer from MRI and clinical data. Lucida Medical aims to make cancer screening accurate, accessible, cost- effective and quick. (Copenhagen, Denmark): Radiobotics are automating measurements and detections in x- rays to streamline the reading of features in musculoskeletal x-rays. (London, UK): SPRYT is a smart scheduling solution that improves uptake/coverage rates for screening services as well as reducing the appointment no-show problem. No show rates are a significant problem in diagnostic cancer services. (London, UK): My Clinical Outcomes integrates remote, longitudinal Patient-Reported Outcome Measures into routine clinical practice to enable smarter individual decisions, and better overall value care pathways. (Bilbao, Spain): Legit Health is a clinical data and communication tool that helps next-generation dermatologists improve diagnosis, score severity and monitor the evolution of wounds, and chronic and malignant skin lesions. This AI- powered technology helps clinicians & patients alike to improve diagnosis. (London, UK): Vinehealth combines behavioural science and AI to provide highly personalised patient support that improves the quality of life and survival of cancer patients.

  13. “Collaboration and co-development are key for delivering digital transformation and

    getting the data-driven technologies that we need into healthcare. The value for us as a healthcare provider for participating in the Edison Accelerator is that it allowed us to work with subject matter experts on a real-world problem that helps us and leverages the commercial, strategic and technical minds of GE Healthcare’s Edison platform. We benefit from the expertise, we built our own expertise, we built our collaborative network, that we may otherwise not have been part of.” Katherine Boylan, Head of Innovation
  14. “Current cancer diagnostic pathways remain laborious, lengthy and sometimes a

    multi-faceted process with many potential bottlenecks despite recent innovations. With increasing post Covid-19 pressures, any such bottlenecks could delay diagnostic investigations and hence adversely affect patient outcomes. Alliance’s focus on service excellence and innovative imaging technologies allows us to create value for patients, clinicians, service providers and other stakeholders while improving patient experiences, clinical outcomes and yet still driving efficiencies to reduce costs. Thus, we are delighted to partner with GE Healthcare thru the Edison Accelerator programme as a validation partner to help deliver a healthier world with more precise and efficient care.” Dr Peter Strouhal, Medical Director UK
  15. #EdisonAccelerator www.edison-accelerator.com “We believe that collaboration between corporations and start-ups

    is essential to boost innovation in healthcare. Through the Edison Accelerator, we can share needs and experiences with other European stakeholders and create an ecosystem of cooperation and joint development.” Tania Menéndez Hevia, Digital Transformation Officer
  16. #EdisonAccelerator www.edison-accelerator.com “MFT appreciate the opportunity to work with GE

    Healthcare and partners to gain insights into AI solutions, the visibility of solutions presented by GE and Wayra in the competition stage was enlightening. An ambitious timescale means that impetus should be maintained, we look forward to helping with both the development and evaluation of pilot solutions and the subsequent opportunities to research and evaluate these technologies. The sprint model of weekly catch up’s has worked well. The main challenge has been around securing clinical engagement due to busy schedules and other priorities but this is not unique to the Edison Accelerator.” Adrian Warner, Commercial Development Manager, Research and Innovation Division
