Our journey pioneering predictive health technologies began in 2016 with a 12,000-patient randomised clinical trial, which was published in the European Journal of Emergency Medicine. This first study demonstrated that tele-coaching reduced emergency admissions for high-risk patients.
We're proud that robust evidence and research is at the heart of our work. Our flagship trial is an extensive NHS trial of 1,800 patients, with guidance from the Nuffield Trust.
Published in the British Journal of General Practice and Emergency Medicine Journal, this trial validated our AI platform's ability to identify and predict risks, enabling targeted nursing outreach to improve outcomes.
We continue to invest in research partnerships and projects advancing equity, fairness, and transparency in AI-enabled care.
Our work began by clinically proving the value of tele-coaching, progressed to honing AI predictive capabilities and now we spearhead research expanding the real-world impact of AI. Our publications, partnerships and products demonstrate our commitment to rigorous, ethical innovation.

The impact on primary care workload of case management interventions to reduce emergency department (ED) attendances is unknown. The aim of this trail is to examine the impact of a telephone-based case-management intervention targeting people with high ED attendance on primary care use.

Since 2019, we've partnered with UCL's Health Data Science MSc to supervise student research projects. Students work with our data scientists, gaining real-world experience. We also invest in ongoing R&D with partners. This guides development through independent evaluation and peer review.
