University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Trust joins the AI Centre ConsortiumTopic: Partners
The AI Centre is proud to announce that University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Trust will be joining our consortium of clinical, research and industry partners. While the AI Centre is already partnered with 9 NHS Trusts across the South East the partnership with UHB is the first step in expanding the reach of our NHS partners nationally.
Collaboration and partnership are the keys to our success, and we are thrilled to have Birmingham NHS Trust on board. The AI Centre is now partnered with 10 NHS Trusts across the UK – and we hope to expand further. Our goal is to support AI from research and development to deployment in live clinical pathways, to benefit patients, clinicians and society. With more NHS Trusts joining the consortium, we hope to see an accelerated uptake of our robust, secure and trustworthy AI applications.

The AI Centre aims to streamline the deployment of AI applications within NHS Trusts with it’s software platform AIDE. Prior to AIDE, the process to install and deploy new AI applications would involve purchasing and installing new hardware and software and connecting everything to the clinical workflow for each app. With AIDE, this is all centralised and standardised, making the deployment of AI applications far smoother.
We are excited to join this ground-breaking public-private consortium. The AI Centre platform, AIDE, will accelerate the adoption of AI applications within University Hospitals Birmingham Trust. AI can transform the way we deliver care and the treatment we provide - we are committed to working with our new partners to explore its full potential.
Simon Ball, Chief Medical Officer, University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust
The hardware for AIDE is being installed at UHB this February, and AIDE is forecast to be up and running in the first half of 2023.
