Developed healthcare systems are experiencing shortages in skilled clinicians and a surging demand for diagnosis. For example, in the US there are 11 radiologists per 100,000 people. However, this shortage is even more pronounced in other markets – Kenya has just 0.35 radiologists per 100,000 people. The increased demand for equitable, accurate and effective healthcare delivery requires complementary systems like artificial intelligence (AI) to provide human-aided diagnosis and help relieve some of this disparity.

We rapidly develop, commercialise and deploy AI tools that support clinical diagnosis. The tools are designed to provide diagnosis across a wide range of medical conditions. After all, what use would a spell checker be if it could only check words beginning with ‘a’?
A partnership model that addresses the skills shortage
Our vision is to redefine what’s possible in healthcare, through AI technology. To work towards this at scale and speed, we partner with companies who have deep expertise and networks within specific healthcare areas, on a series of ventures.

Each venture is based on the harrison.ai platform, and fuses our partner company’s data sets with our technology and frameworks, enabling us to rapidly build and scale products and get them to the places around the globe where they’re needed most.
harrison.ai and I-MED Radiology partnered to form annalise.ai in early 2020 to develop comprehensive solutions across radiology modalities. annalise.ai’s first product, the world’s most comprehensive AI clinical decision-support solution for chest x-rays, is already in use by more than 350 radiologists in Australia every day and is rolling out to hundreds more. The partnership saw annalise.ai co-research, develop and commercialise the solution within 18 months. The solution, which is capable of detecting 124 findings, was recently featured in peer-reviewed publication the Lancet Digital Health journal.

I-MED Radiology Network CEO Dr Shrey Viranna says,
As one of the largest diagnostic imaging providers globally, I-MED has an important role to play in the creation of AI for our industry as part of our ongoing commitment to outstanding patient care. Our team of specialist doctors include some of the most respected radiologists in their sub-speciality areas and we are proud of their instrumental role in the development of Annalise CXR.”
franklin.ai is a joint venture between global medical diagnostic leader Sonic Healthcare and harrison.ai. Combining our skills and experience is the fastest way to achieve our common goal of improving the capacity and quality of pathology services globally.
We’re working hand-in-hand with pathologists to develop AI-powered tools that will augment their pivotal role at the heart of the healthcare system. Our mission is to put groundbreaking artificial intelligence in the hands of pathologists globally, and benefit millions of patients.
Our pathology venture
Dr Colin Goldschmidt, CEO of Sonic Healthcare, said:
The formation of a joint venture with harrison.ai is an exciting moment in Sonic Healthcare’s progression as a healthcare company. harrison.ai is a smart, agile, and medically led company with a proven track record in the healthcare AI space. The partnership with Sonic and our deep healthcare experience and global reach represents a synergistic union and a powerful force in healthcare AI.”
