Developments in AI can transform the NHS’ ability to prevent, diagnose, treat, and manage disease in order to support a shift towards better prevention, health and wellbeing.  

Using AI is an enabler for rapid diagnosis via technology, which results in improved diagnosis, frees up resource, and is more efficient in both cost and resource, which leads to better patient outcomes and helps with Elective Recovery.  

Via the Artificial Intelligence (AI), Imaging and Radiotherapy Equipment, Associated Products and Diagnostic Imaging Framework Agreement, AI looks to capture methods and processes that can improve diagnostics, assist, and relieve workloads for a wide range of clinical staff. AI software allows radiology to carry on out of hours without the radiologist being on site, reducing the burden. It also covers full body scanning, with a focus on chest and head. 

The demand for diagnostic imaging is expected to increase by 10% – 12% year on year, linked to improving outcomes and increasing demands on the health service. The requirement to deliver better and faster diagnosis in an environment of increasing demand will require the NHS to increase capacity whilst working against financial constraints – this framework agreement can help you to achieve this. 

The Artificial Intelligence (AI), Imaging and Radiotherapy Equipment, Associated Products and Diagnostic Imaging Framework Agreement forms part of a wider solution designed to support elective recovery within the NHS. Find out more here. 

This framework agreement was procured in accordance with The Public Contracts Regulations (PCR) 2015. This framework agreement remains a compliant route to market under the new Health Care Services (Provider Selection Regime) Regulations 2023. If you have any questions, please contact the team.
