Medical imaging firm included as part of global campaign to showcase the UK’s most innovative and impactful digital health innovators.

Blackford has been included as one of the top digital health companies in the UK in a new list compiled by the Department for International Trade. Healthcare UK’s First 100 Digital Health Companies features UK companies with a proven track record of benefiting the lives of healthcare professionals and patients.

Blackford was included as one of just eight companies listed in the “Screening and Diagnostics” category. The accompanying report states that “The demand for AI applications in medical imaging is growing rapidly but it is challenging for healthcare facilities to deploy AI applications. Every application is time consuming and requires significant IT and clinical resources to implement. But we know that early diagnosis and intervention improves outcomes, saves lives and optimizes resources.”

Blackford’s single dedicated platform provides access to a curated library of medical image analysis applications and AI algorithms that add clinical value. Easily integrated into existing workflows, the Blackford platform provides actionable information that allows healthcare providers to use imaging information smartly and reduce the cost of care while improving diagnostic confidence and patient outcomes.

Blackford also revealed the company is part of the new UK Healthcare Pavilion, a new online platform designed to promote the best of the country’s life sciences and healthcare innovators to the world. By facilitating discovery and connections, the platform will enable international buyers and healthcare providers to identify and engage with the UK’s leading companies in the field.
