At Deloitte, we're driven by a commitment to make an impact that matters on business and society. That commitment is now seeing us focus our time and effort on one of the UK's most pressing issues - the healthcare workforce shortage.

Shortage of doctors

In order to meet the OECD EU average of 4 doctors per 1,000 people, the UK requires 40,0001 more doctors.

30% of time spent on documentation

Clinicians spend up to 30%2 of their time on documentation – time that could be better spent helping their patients.

25 years

It would take 25 years3 to address the NHS workforce shortage if we continue using current methods to ease the burden.

We believe that through innovation and artificial intelligence (AI), we can help transform healthcare in the UK.

Introducing Clinify

We've set up the Clinify business with a clear goal: to use AI to boost the capacity of the NHS workforce and to help transform the delivery of healthcare.

We believe our capabilities in building healthcare software could have a real impact

Solutions that can make clinical administrative decisions and recommendations will free-up capacity and boost productivity within healthcare.

However, these solutions are not easy to build - requiring the adherence to many stringent regulations and a fully fledged team of clinicians, regulatory experts, product managers, data scientists and engineers in order to be developed. Indeed before being placed in market, regulatory requirements need to be fulfilled. For oganisations looking to enter this area, it can be overwhelming.

Fortunately, we have experience in building such regulated medical software so we can support you in your endeavours to increase capacity and boost productivity in your organisation.

Our expertise and experience is in creating products that...

Save clinicians’ time

For example, by using the latest techniques in artificial intelligence to support the process of triaging GP referral letters.

Seamlessly integrate with eRS

We’ve been able to connect solutions to the national electronic referral service (eRS), enabling a seamless user experience.

Meet national guidelines

We’ve been able to meet national guidelines as defined by NICE, ensuring we followed best clinical practice for patient pathway management.

Meet regulatory standards

We can develop solutions which comply with the regulatory requirements of software as a medical device in the UK.

Meet some of the team

Our team can support you with using AI to transform clinical processes and patient care. With over 75 years of clinical experience, the Clinify team at Deloitte is made up of AI specialists, clinicians, research professionals, data scientists, software engineers, and regulatory experts who can transform your processes at scale.
