Harrison.ai: creating clinically effective medical AI solutions
Harrison.ai was founded in 2018 by Tran and his brother, Dimitry Tran to create accurate and clinically effective medical AI solutions.
Since its founding 3 years ago, Harrison.ai now has over 250 staff working across the company and its ventures.
By creating AI-as-a-medical-device, the company aim to improve the standard of healthcare for 1 million lives every day is shared by our staff, suppliers, investors and customers.
The COVID-19 pandemic has added to the strains within clinical diagnosis and treatment. Now even developed healthcare systems face massive shortages in skilled radiologists and clinicians, with significantly more staff required to meet surging demand for diagnosis.
This increased demand for equitable, accurate and effective healthcare delivery requires complementary systems like AI.
AI-powered technology has the ability to provide human-aided diagnosis and help relieve some of this disparity.
With its partners, Harrison.ai has pioneered a unique and proven model. This model can rapidly develop, commercialise and deploy accurate and clinically effective AI tools that support clinical diagnosis in a range of medical areas.
Through its technology, the company has developed deep AI expertise and methodology that, when combined with the clinical expertise and data of medical partners, significantly shortens the path to market for new healthcare AI applications.
