Early-stage startup
aiPatient is aiming to offer affordable medical education using AI, with students and healthcare professionals interacting with digital, artificial intelligent patients.

Patient interaction is at the core of healthcare education, as well as the continued education of aiPatientqualified doctors and healthcare professionals. Outside of a hospital or clinic, however, the opportunity for this interaction is limited or non-existent. Even then, they cannot be examined on this interaction.

When learning, institutions often employ actors to play the part of patients for students to learn and practice consultations with, which is unnecessarily costly. Although they are given placements in hospitals, learning on sick patients who may be unable to converse, or more interested in getting better than playing a part in a student’s education, is not always ideal. 

aiPatient’s mission is to improve the quality, accessibility, and affordability of medical education worldwide, allowing students and healthcare professionals to practice diagnostic reasoning, communication, and interview skills at any time with digital, artificial intelligent patients.

With only a device and internet connection, users can interact with these AI patients, enriching or continuing their education no matter what stage of their healthcare career they are at. One of the biggest pros of this system, of course, is that it takes away all risk to real patients.

The users performance is also automatically scored through artificial intelligence, which scores the user’s performance, both on these questions and on their consultation. In this way, there is no waiting around to find out how the user performed. The AI’s data analytics can be provided to both the user and their actual, human tutor to track progress and identify weak points. 

aiPatient Scott MartinStill only a handful of months old, startup aiPatient won the Venture Further Award, achieved and graduated from a place on the Manchester based AccelerateME programme, only a few weeks ago, Founder Scott Martin delivered an inspiring pitch to finish runner-up at Digital DNA’s upSTART 2018 startup pitch competition, after being selected to pitch as one of 25 disruptive UK and Irish startups at the event. 

To date, aiPatient has raised £11.5k in funding and already has several large UK medical schools on board to pilot the platform from September 2018.

aiPatient certainly stands to better medical education in developed countries, but imagine how beneficial it could also be to developing nations with less access to high quality medical education.

We think this is one AI focused startup with a very healthy future.
