HN predicts and prevents unplanned care events using AI on existing healthcare data. Our approach helps to ease the pressure on your staff, improve clinical outcomes and patient experience.

Our evidence shows we can identify 8 out of 10 patients who are likely to require emergency admission, and supporting them to improve their health outcomes. This reduces the likelihood of admission by 34%.

HN’s story is unique. Founded in Sweden by a group of clinicians and researchers, including Founder Dr Joachim Werr, HN’s UK operations were established in 2015. Through our partnerships with the NHS we are proud to have improved the quality of life for thousands of patients.

Our work is nationally recognised by the NHS Innovation Accelerator supporting national scaling of clinically-evidenced solutions to the NHS's biggest challenges

Data-driven approach

HN’s work is underpinned by a strong body of evidence. At its core is a rigorous and research-driven methodology to understand the impact of our service on the local health economy and patients' wellbeing, activation and overall health.

HN Predict has been validated through both intervention studies, including randomised controlled trial (RCT) in Sweden and UK and experimental studies – case studies published by East Kent Hospital University Foundation Trust, NHSE Personalised Care team York & Humber AHSN. Our RCT with the Nuffield Research Trust, has recruited thousands of patients across seven sites in the UK and has shown consistent results, including the capability of HN’s intervention to reduce care demand by on average 30%, in some areas up to 45% and improve patient reported outcomes (PROMS) by on average 34%.
