This gathering brought together industry leaders, healthcare professionals, and technology innovators, driving vibrant discussions about how solutions such as Aidoc’s AI can support UK radiologists in addressing critical challenges such as workforce shortages and increasing demand for services.

UKIO 2024 Highlights

A highlight of UKIO 2024 was the exchange of ideas captured in the latest episode of AXREM Insights, “Innovating Healthcare: Live Insights from UKIO 2024.” Hosted by Melanie Johnson and Sally Edgington, this episode features interviews with several key AXREM members, including Aidoc, offering valuable insights on the advancements and challenges within the industry.

When asked how Aidoc’s technology can help healthcare professionals of the future and impact the NHS workforce, Mike’s response was clear:

“The NHS is full. Anything that can help get patients through quicker, in particular reducing length of stay, is key going forward.”
