Medwise.ai uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to answer questions for clinicians faster than the latter can respond to. It asserts that currently, doctors cannot keep up with the latest research evidence making them unable to provide the best care for their patients. It also points out that health care providers in the UK, such as the NHS, are losing £5 billion every year due to the lack of adoption of evidence-based best practices. Medwise.ai aims to change this by utilizing the latest transformer-based neural networks and Natural Language Processing (NLP) technologies to extract answers from multiple sources and support clinicians to make the best decisions for patients. Medwise.ai argues that unlike traditional search engines that provide a user with a list of websites or documents, medwise.ai's portal and app provide bite-sized, actionable, and evidence-based answers extracted from trusted sources. The company is envisaging an exit through an acquisition by a publishing company, an Electronic Health Records (EHR) company, or a pharmaceutical company.
