LONDON, UK, May 18, 2020 – Behold.ai, the UK Artificial Intelligence radiology company, today announced its partnership with Apollo Radiology International, part of the Apollo Hospitals Group and a leading provider of interpretative and other clinical radiological services, on a pilot programme using Behold.ai’s ‘instant triage’ AI-based chest X-ray technology to quickly triage suspected COVID-19 patients. This ‘instant triage’ will boost India’s efforts in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic by potentially speeding up diagnosis and ensuring proper allocation of resources.
Behold.ai will supply its red dot® algorithm via Apollo Radiology International to Apollo Hospitals’ network of 71 hospitals in India, comprising 12,000 beds. The algorithm will also be deployed in some local government-run hospitals in India as part of the pilot programme making it the world’s largest deployment of a radiology-based AI diagnostic solution for COVID-19. The service is expected to go live when the lockdown measures are eased by the government of India.
