UK Healthcare Scaleup Navenio Secures Government Funding for its Hospital Workforce AI Platform-01

Navenio, the UK company that has pioneered indoor location-based artificial intelligence to revolutionise workflows and can double the throughput of hospital teams, has been successful in securing funding in the latest round of the Artificial Intelligence in Health and Care Award.

Navenio was one of 38 organisations to receive the funding in the second round of the competition, with the AI Award making £140 million available to multiple applicants over four years to accelerate the testing and evaluation of artificial intelligence technologies which meet the aims set out in the NHS Long Term Plan.

Through world-leading University of Oxford research, Navenio creates unique indoor location-based services, solving the problem that GPS doesn’t work indoors without requiring any new infrastructure. The Award’s aim is to increase the impact of AI-driven technologies to help solve clinical and operational challenges across the NHS and care settings. It aligns perfectly with Navenio’s mission to help transform hospitals through ensuring the right person is in the right place, at the right time.

For Navenio, the funding will support the company in delivering benefits to many more hospitals, following its significant success to date operating its solution 24×7 in the NHS. Navenio will partner with three existing customers to establish the baseline comparison for the project and then on-board ten further hospitals in two phases. Phase one is for logistics teams like porters and cleaners and phase two expands this to clinical support teams, including allied health professionals. Through the Award, Navenio will develop a proven and nationally scalable evidence-base to help support improved patient flow across the NHS.

For patients, Navenio helps deliver a better care experience by removing the distraction of logistics from frontline clinical teams, alongside faster response times and higher quality cleaning practice, ensuring safer movements of the vulnerable between departments, and quicker turnaround overall – reducing patient stay times and getting people home sooner.

Tim Weil, CEO and Co-Founder at Navenio, commented: “The Navenio team is both honoured and delighted to receive the AI in Health and Care Award. The funding will help us accelerate being able to support more teams and patients across the NHS, as we look to build on the positive impact that our technology has provided, particularly during the pandemic. Artificial intelligence is one of many technologies making a real-world impact in the healthcare sector, and Navenio is proud to help spearhead digital transformation alongside the other award recipients”
