Sonrai Analytics, a UK global precision medicine innovator in AI, and United Arab Emirates (UAE) based Alliance Care Technologies (ACT), a developer of innovative solutions in digital healthcare, have announced a strategic partnership to bring transformational AI solutions to enhance cancer detection and biomarker discovery to the UAE market.
The Preferred Partnership agreement signed at the Arab Health Congress will give UAE researchers, and clinicians access to AI-supported clinical systems to assist in the accelerated detection of cancerous tumours and improve patient outcomes. Through this partnership, ACT can access Sonrai’s proprietary AI technology and expertise to bring this precision oncology capability to more oncologists, hospital systems and other medical providers in the UAE.
Sonrai’s pedigree in building AI assets for regulatory approval has been deployed in high-level programmes with Roche and the NHS. Through ACT, leading healthcare organisations will have access to Sonrai’s comprehensive AI suite and cloud services, including the potential to co-develop algorithms that could become AI biomarker tests for healthcare organisations.
Speaking at Arab Health, Founder-CEO of Sonrai Analytics, Dr Darragh McArt said: “We are delighted to have this partnership in place to expand our market opportunity to new territories and to introduce our AI data analytics platform and algorithms to key individuals in the care pathway to improve patient outcomes. ACT has a fantastic understanding of the area in which Sonrai operates, and I look forward to a successful relationship.”
Michele Tarnow, CEO, Alliance Care Technologies said: “UAE's diverse population makes it uniquely situated for universal population health research. Sonrai provides the ideal platform for collaborative research across omics medicine, biotech and pharma. Alliance Caret Technologies is excited to announce Sonrai's arrival in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and the opportunity to support the region's growth in global health.”
