CogStack wins HETT Unexpected Innovation Awards
CogStack won the ‘Data Innovation Award – RPA/AI/Data’, which recognises digital products or services that demonstrate measurable impacts and outcomes delivered in big data projects, at the ceremony in November.
The HETT Unexpected Innovation Awards celebrate the very best in experimental design, collaboration, and leadership in digital healthcare. The evening showcased champions of digital health innovation and highlight great stories of transformation witnessed in the past year. The awards are designed to bring together the health and care ecosystem, to hear best practice examples that inspire more to do the same.
Through close collaboration between computer and data scientists, clinicians, hospital IT teams and patients, the CogStack team have used approaches including natural language AI to make sense of the vast and heterogeneous data that is locked away within the NHS – insights derived from this data are critical to improve the functioning of the NHS. I am really pleased that the potential of CogStack to transform healthcare beyond KHP has been recognised by this award.Prof Richard Dobson
The work of CogStack has grown from an academic collaboration between all of King’s Health Partners to produce translationally useful clinical informatics tools for healthcare. Importantly CogStack has embraced open-source principles with many of these tools and technology being made openly available for the wider NHS. I am personally proud to say that this is evidence for how NHS home-grown technologies can and do flourish.Prof James Teo
