Presight AI, a G42 company, and the UAE’s international leader in Big Data Analytics powered by AI, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with G42 Healthcare, the leading AI health-tech company based in Abu Dhabi, to develop a foundational big data model.

Leveraging Presight’s omni-analytics platform and G42 Healthcare’s in-depth knowledge and expertise in the health industry, the collaboration will result in the exploration of population health management, wellness and performance data prediction, and time-sequenced events and behavioral analysis prediction.

The agreement was signed at Arab Health Week by Dr. Adel Al Sharji, Chief Operating Officer of Presight AI, and Mr. Ashish Koshy, CEO of G42 Healthcare.

The new collaboration will transform the analytical capability of both government entities and hospitals, improving record collection and understanding advanced digitized processes, such as optical character recognition (OCR) and natural language processing (NLP) used in the healthcare industry. This eases administrative practices, improves data accuracy, and reduces manual data entry. Additionally, machine-learning-based models will help unlock insights about patient demographics, health issues, diagnoses, and hospital and clinic resource utilization.

This partnership with G42 Healthcare is the perfect example of how we are putting this commitment into action. The combined knowledge of both organizations has a significant positive impact by extending the quality of care provided in the region and creating new verticals in the healthcare industry led by data-driven insights.”

By combining data collected from smartwatches, wristbands, and advanced omics applications, organizations will advance personal health analytics with the goal of improving the early detection of health issues and providing recommendations on necessary dietary methods, sleeping schedules, and exercise plans for optimal health. In addition, the collaboration between Presight and G42 Healthcare will provide a wellness and performance management platform for athletes, guiding their dietary and training programs to enhance physical performance.

Mr. Koshy said that “The collaboration between G42 Healthcare and Presight AI is expanding the horizons of the healthcare industry, and will have a positive impact on transforming lives and making a real difference to the health and well-being of people across the region.”
