HN showcases predictive, anticipatory care solutions at 20th Health Summit, Dublin

HN was delighted to join over 500 of Ireland's top health leaders and policymakers last week (7 February) at the 20th National Health Summit in Dublin for a day of insights, sharing best practice and learnings in healthcare.

The event was the perfect opportunity to showcase how data and AI can usher in a new era of preventative, personalised and predictive health.

HN hosted a discussion, led by ex-A&E clinician and former UK govt tsar Prof Matthew Cooke, on the topic of 'Anticipatory care in 2024: New models for prediction and their application in Ireland.' Matthew took the audience through HN's pioneering 7-year randomised controlled trial, demonstrating how proactive outreach guided by machine learning can dramatically reduce hospital visits for vulnerable groups.

Rather than a passive, reactive approach, HN Predict identifies people at risk of adverse health events, enabling healthcare providers to deliver evidence-based prevention. This predictive anticipatory care approach stratifies risk to enable tailored interventions far earlier. By getting upstream to head off deterioration, we keep people healthier at home and alleviate pressures on the health system.

Matthew was joined on stage at the Summit by Professor Garry Courtney, Clinical Lead at HSE, who added his reflections on ageing well, and being independent well into advanced years!
