Australian-based Eyetelligence, a developer of decision-making support software, and the UAE-based Alliance Care Technologies (ACT) have announced a strategic partnership at Precision Med Expo in Dubai to bring transformational AI Ophthalmology solutions to the UAE market.
The Preferred Partnership agreement signed at Precision Med Expo will provide stand-alone and hospital-based clinics with Glaucoma detection support, Referable Diabetic Retinopathy screening support with grading, and screening support for neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD).
The signing ceremony was held in the Alliance Care Technologies booth at Precision Med Expo in Dubai, witnessed by Mounir Sankary, Australian Deputy Consul General for Dubai. Attendees representing Eyetelligence included Founder Prof. Mingguang He, MD PhD; CEO Rainer Grote, and Chief Strategy Officer Jason Sun. Alliance Care Technologies is represented by Founder and CEO Michele Tarnow, and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Aaron Han, MD, PhD.
According to Prof. Ming: “AI has evolved from computer software in the laboratory to clinical adaptation in many image-driven practices, including ophthalmology. Enabled by a combination of the availability of large datasets and substantially improved computing power, deep learning algorithms (DLAs) have created unprecedented opportunities for substantially improved accuracy in automated detection and diagnosis of eye diseases. This development will make eye care less dependent on human input and therefore would improve accessibility, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness, making ocular disease diagnosis and management quicker, cheaper, and more consistent”.
“We anticipate strong demand for this technology across the region” says Michele Tarnow, CEO Alliance Care Technologies, “Our partnerships with both Eyetelligence and Eyerising in the Gulf Region will provide stand-alone and hospital-based clinics with Glaucoma detection support, Referable Diabetic Retinopathy screening support with grading, and screening support for neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD).”
Mounir Sankary, Deputy Consul-General Dubai and Trade Commissioner at Austrade, said, “We at the Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade) are pleased to see the partnership agreement between Eyetelligence and Alliance Care Technologies that will leverage advanced AI capabilities for quality preventative health measures for the people of UAE. These are exactly the sort of partnerships we love to see - a sharing of passion and expertise between Australia and the UAE.”
