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.
