Established in 2019, Envisionit Deep AI is an innovative medical technology company that utilizes AI to streamline and improve medical imaging diagnosis for radiologists.
We are guided by OUR VISION to positively impact the lives of children in Africa by using revolutionary technology to democratise access to healthcare for all.
Healthcare services in Africa are under resourced and overused. In a continent which makes up 11% of the world’s population, where 41% is under the age of 15, healthcare providers are challenged by the significant burden of disease. This is further exacerbated by the fact that there are less than 20 fellowship trained paediatric radiologists in Africa.
The use of cross sectional diagnostic imaging (CT, MRI) has increased dramatically over the past decade contributing to increasing medical costs and exposure to ionising radiation. This has placed additional pressure on healthcare providers to work more, accurately, efficiently and timeously in order to provide the best treatment plans for their patients.
Globally, respiratory and congenital heart disease is among the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in children under 5 years of age and this is most prevalent in Sub Saharan Africa.
We at EDAI have developed a solution to address some of these challenges.
The chest X-ray is the most readily available, cost effective and appropriate imaging modality for the assessment and initial diagnosis of common childhood respiratory and congenital heart diseases.
Our AI platform offers a great opportunity to enhance and augment the radiology reading, of chest x-rays, thereby relieving the bottleneck in medical imaging diagnosis.
Through our machine learning platform, we believe that Envisionit Deep AI will add significant value to our clinical colleagues and patients alike.
We do not aim to replace radiologists. Instead, a radiologist will be empowered to prioritise the urgent cases and thereby offer a more patient centric model of health service delivery.
General practitioners and paediatricians will benefit from our paediatric radiology referral service.
Medical imaging is at the forefront of disruption in medicine and by utilising our platform, you become a part of the movement to democratise access to healthcare for all in Africa.
