SME of the Week: July 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: SkinVision is a CE Marked Smartphone application for early detection of the most common forms of skin cancer. We are on a mission to save over 250,000 lives from skin cancer in the next decade. Skinvision is used by 1.3M people globally and the Algorithm is based on 3.5M images. Latest studies show 95% specificity and 78% sensitivity.
Recent success: We’ve launched a PDF report feature enabling our users to share their risk assessments with their healthcare professionals including additional views and information.
We are working with NHS Dermatologists to define workflow for a new use case where we share images and symptoms to aid early detection and treatment as part of the COVID-19 recovery programme. This brings the best of human expertise and AI together.
In June we launched a partnership with a UK health insurer, Medicash, to give free access to 220,000 UK policyholders to further promote early detection as part of their digital health benefits programme.
