As Artificial Intelligence (AI) develops faster than ever, with generative AI, clinicians must keep up-to-date with its impact on their patients, care pathways and their careers.

This webinar will explore how AI is changing healthcare. Learn from innovators and businesses already using it to understand the state of NHS and social care data, and how it can be used to reduce inequalities, those subspecialties using AI with examples across radiology, cardiology, mental health and surgery, its impact on doctor-patient relationships, and regulations.

By attending this webinar, participants will learn:

  • The importance of clean data and linking data so it can be used for AI
  • How AI is changing the dr-patient relationship
  • What is needed to get regulatory approval for software

This webinar is available for on-demand viewing. The webinar recording will be available for registered delegates up to 60 days after the live webinar broadcast via Zoom. The link will be sent 24 hours after the webinar takes place.

Speaker's biography

Dr Dom Pimenta graduated with triple distinction from UCL MBBS in 2012. After practicing for ten years in the NHS as a cardiologist, Dr Pimenta became a pharmaceutical physician via a stint in COVID ICU. During this time, Dr Pimenta ran large-scale digital health trials and published in the field of applied AI in healthcare.

Dr Pimenta became frustrated by the increasing power of clinical AI models in academia but the scarcity of application in the real-world. Deciding to make this his career mission, Dr Pimenta was accepted to Europe's best accelerator programme, Entrepreneur First, and met his co-founder Christopher Tan, an up and coming machine learning scientist.

Together they founded TORTUS, building the world's first AI agent for healthcare, a true co-pilot that can not only take over all software tasks from physicians, but use other forms of AI as well. Their vision is to 11950302.1 bring clinical AI tools into the hands of every physician, using any software system, anywhere.

Dr Pimenta was previously the founding CEO and later chair of The Healthcare Workers' Foundation, a charity that raised £3.2m to support healthcare workers during the 2020 COVID pandemic. Dr Pimenta has received multiple awards for his work, including the Young Investigator Award at the European Society of Preventative Cardiology and the Royal Academy of Engineers President's Award for Services to the Pandemic.

When not founding companies and charities, Dr Pimenta is a very busy husband and father of three, as well as the owner of a particularly famous cat.

Can we futureproof the health and care workforce?

The NHS has a serious workforce crisis, 10% vacancy rates are common across the country and across professional groups, often higher. This was true before Covid. Post-covid, record levels of burnout and high numbers exiting the NHS are reported. At the same time the nature of healthcare work is changing. The impact of technology, AI, demographics, public expectations, amongst others, means our workforce needs to change too.

In partnership with the Health Innovation Network, this conference will provide a forum for discussion of the current crisis facing the NHS and the opportunities for change.
