SME of the Week: August Roundup
Every week, we put a spotlight on one of the DigitalHealth.London Accelerator or Launchpad companies. Here’s a roundup of this month’s featured SMEs:
About: Dem Dx is a diagnostic-reasoning support tool, designed by specialists to help healthcare professionals get to a faster, more accurate diagnosis. Our mission is to empower healthcare professionals at the frontline to deliver improved healthcare, with the use of an intuitive clinical support platform.
Starting with a presenting complaint, add associated symptoms/signs and Dem Dx guides them to reach a set of potential diagnoses and next steps in the clinical journey as investigations and onward referrals.
Recent success: Dem Dx has been awarded funds from “GCRF demonstrate impact in developing countries” competition by Innovate Uk to stat an impactful partnership with the University of Rwanda. Sub-Saharan Africa holds one of the lowest concentrations of doctors worldwide, with less than 50% of the minimum recommended ophthalmologist to cater for the population and allied health professionals (AHP) increasingly taking on critical diagnostic triage roles. However, there are currently no products that train or support AHPs in triage.
The project will adapt our Ophthalmology Triage platform to train AHPs at both the Kenya Medical Training Council and the University of Rwanda to be more efficient and confident in triaging patients. This will accelerate the number of qualified AHPs and provide ongoing triage support in clinics, due to start in September 2020.
Dem Dx triage platform was developed and tested in partnership with Morfield’s Eye Hospital, and it has been used to triage patients in the Paediatric A&E.
Ask: Introductions to Eye Hospitals with a particular interest in upskilling healthcare professionals and improve the efficiency of A&Es.
