DeepMind Health patient engagement event
DeepMind Health held their first large-scale patient and public involvement event on 20th September 2016, bringing together a diverse group of patients and carers to hear about the work DeepMind Health are doing and to help decide on the best way to involve service users going forward. Over 130 patients, carers and members of the public were in attendance with many more watching the livestream.
Moorfields patient Elaine Manna took to the stage to tell her story of how age-related macular degeneration (AMD) has affected her and why she has been inspired by the research project between Moorfields and DeepMind Health.
Mr Pearse Keane, consultant ophthalmologist at Moorfields Eye Hospital, also explained how the research partnership came about and the hope that this work will eventually help eye health professionals to make faster and more accurate diagnoses of the commonest eye conditions.
The livestream of the event is available to watch below.
Update September 2019: In 2016, Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust entered into an exciting research partnership with the British technology company DeepMind. In November 2018, it was announced that DeepMind Health would move to Google Health so that the app can grow and support more doctors to deliver faster, better care to patients. In September 2019, after careful consideration, we have now replaced our partnership agreements to continue our work with Google Health.
