DeepMind, NHS Expand Data-Sharing Partnership to Improve Patient Outcomes with Stream App

DeepMind and the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust announced that they entered into a five-year partnership that will build on an existing joint project to develop the Streams smartphone app, which alerts clinical teams to patients at greatest risk for acute kidney injury. The parties indicated that following prototype testing, as well as registration with the UK Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency, the first version of the app will be launched across Royal Free hospital sites early next year.

“Over the course of the next five years, we’re going to expand Streams to cover other illnesses where early intervention is key,” DeepMind said, adding that “we think that Streams could also be used to help patients at risk from sepsis and other causes of organ failure, where signs of deterioration are often difficult for clinicians to spot, and where early intervention can be the difference between life and death”.
