AI-powered medtech solutions company Brainomix and Visionable, a provider of a real-time clinical collaboration platform, have teamed up to enhance the delivery of care for stroke patients.

The collaboration is structured to co-market two complementary solutions through Visionable’s collaboration platform and Brainomix’s e-Stroke AI software.

Through the partnership, the two tech-enabled health companies aim to enhance stroke care delivery across the end-to-end pathway, from pre-acute to intra-hospital.

Visionable chief commercial officer Rob Hughes said: “Technology must make life easier for clinicians and improve treatment for patients; Brainomix and Visionable are delivering value in both areas.

“Combined, our complementary solutions have resulted in quicker delivery of care, instant access to rich data and improved patient outcomes – all while boosting job satisfaction for clinicians.

“The success so far is exciting, and we look forward to the growing impact our partnership will have on the quality of care for stroke patients.”

Visionable offers a patented, next-generation digital healthcare collaboration platform that can be used across the care pathway, including virtual consultations, multidisciplinary team (MDT) meetings and at-home care.

Brainomix’s e-Stroke software comprises a set of tools that leverage advanced AI algorithms to enable real-time interpretation of brain scans, which help guide stroke treatment.

The platform, when used together with the AI-based e-Stroke software, is said to allow more patients to be treated in the right place, at the right time.

Brainomix healthcare global VP Riaz Rahman said: “The strength of combining the proven technologies of Visionable and Brainomix means easy and instantaneous access to rich critical clinical information across the pre-acute and intra-hospital phases of stroke care.

“Our joint approach will tackle head-on many of the known systems bottlenecks where multiple stroke centres are involved in a highly time-sensitive pathway.

“We are excited by the enhanced efficiency and value our partnership will bring to healthcare professionals and our customers and look forward to accelerating the adoption of our combined systems under our partnership.”

The stroke team at Ipswich Hospital in Suffolk has witnessed the additional benefit of combining e-Stroke with Visionable’s platform.

The patients and staff are experiencing rapid delivery of care, superior performance metrics, and, most importantly, improved patient outcomes.

Ipswich Hospital stroke consultant Sajid Alam said: “Having the AI software gives us more confidence when interpreting each scan – particularly the CTA’s, where we look for a large vessel occlusion (LVO), a key indicator of patient eligibility for mechanical thrombectomy.

“In stroke, time is critical. Using e-Stroke saves precious minutes, as the scans are immediately available for viewing on the Brainomix web portal. With RLH also using e-Stroke, we can communicate instantly, share images and make transfer decisions without delay.”
