Highlights are:

  • Back in May, CHI provided the 1,000s patient with a ScotCap CCE procedure.
  • We have a >80% “Very Good” rating from patients when asked about their ScotCap experience, or >97% at least “Good”
  • The bowel prep and booster regimens are being changed to increase success rates as supply chain limitations and pharma requirements have been cleared
  • Wave 2 is being rolled out, covering more and more healthboards in Scotland

CorporateHealth and Partners win government funding for Capsule Endoscopy delivery at SCale through enhanced AI anaLysis (CESCAIL)

How can AI reduce the time it takes to analyse the images from a capsule endoscopy?

Our project is one of the 38 winners in Round 2 of the Artificial Intelligence in Health and Care Award to answer that question by building the system and testing it clinically.

The AI Award is making £140 million available over four years to accelerate the testing and evaluation of artificial intelligence technologies which meet the aims set out in the NHS Long Term Plan, something we are very much aligned with.

We will be using the award to make our current prototypes production ready, creating a Software-as-a-Medical Device which we will then clinically validate:

  • World-class experts from NHS University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire with support from the University of Warwick lead the clinical trial and analysis
  • Renowned scientists from the University of Barcelona continue to develop machine learning algorithms with critical clinical advice from NHS Highland
  • NHS Arden and Greater East Midlands Commissioning Support Unit assists the pathway adaptation
  • CorporateHealth has the overall lead and rapidly makes the innovation accessible to patients in the NHS and across the northern hemisphere through its managed service, ultimately reducing the time it takes clinicians to analyse capsule endoscopy videos by up to 80%

This is an incredibly exciting project, following up from the Innovate UK funded project ‘AID-GI’. which brings capsule endoscopy one step closer to widespread integration in the NHS, and we look forward to sharing more information with you in the coming weeks.

The SCOTCAP clinical team is looking at how CCE can overcome capacity constraints during the pandemic while being safe and patient friendly.
