C2-Ai: Dr Mike Roberts
Cambridge-headquartered healthcare analytics company C2-Ai has appointed Dr Mike Roberts as its new medical director international, tasked with expanding how C2-Ai’s products are used by healthcare providers, for new and existing customers.
Hospitals within the NHS and internationally use the company’s AI-backed technologies to provide them with intelligence to help with patient safety and quality and equity of care.
Roberts has a background in emergency medicine and cardiothoracic surgery, and has worked in both the NHS and in New Zealand, where he worked in chief medical officer and medical director roles for more than 15 years.
Roberts said: “I have been extremely enthusiastic about the potential of C2-Ai’s technology for many years and I have seen the impact it can achieve first-hand as a customer, when it comes to supporting clinical governance. Within minutes of using the company’s systems, I was able to see evidence needed to help us improve, evidence that would otherwise have taken years to obtain.
“Healthcare organisations are heavily focussed on improving quality and safety, and C2-Ai’s products can play an important role for many hospitals in this ambition, providing leaders with objective, quantitative and reliable insight. Anybody who wants to understand the quality of care, can do and at a granular level.
“Put simply, the company’s solutions can help healthcare organisations understand where things are not going well so those services can be improved – which is good for patients and saves money. And it shows where things are going well, so that good practice can be exemplified.
“Whether it’s surgical areas, maternity services, or a whole range of clinical specialities, hospitals and their executive teams have a responsibility to ensure the governance is in place for safety. C2-Ai’s systems support that and can help management teams and clinicians have meaningful conversations to improve performance.”
Steve Mackenney, chief executive at C2-Ai, commented: “We work with some of the most forward-thinking hospitals in the world when it comes to using data in effective ways to improve healthcare provision for patients. We are thrilled to expand our team with the appointment of Dr Roberts, who has a wealth of experience to help us to expand this offering to even more hospitals, and to help our existing customers make even more of their investments with us.”
