The Centre for Analytics and AI Engineering (CARTE) industry seminar series welcomes Mr. Steven Truong, Founder and CEO of VinBrain, a subsidiary of Vingroup which is the largest conglomerate in Vietnam. The session is moderated by Farzad Khalvati, Endowed Chair in Medical Imaging and Artificial Intelligence, Associate Professor, The Hospital for Sick Children, University of Toronto.

Abstract: In this talk, I will share VinBrain’s cutting-edge works on Digital Health – AI for Telehealth and Radiologists’ AI assistance via our products of AI SmartCare & DrAid™.
Amid the COVID-19 outbreak in Vietnam, AI SmartCare became the country’s official digital health application for the treatment of COVID-19 patients at home. The application provided the patients with the fastest access to the doctors through video calls while automated triaging & prioritizing emergency cases based on Sp02 and respiratory rate to alert doctors for timely treatment.
Meanwhile, with 4.7B people in the world lacking access to the diagnostic imaging service (in Vietnam there are only three instead of eight radiologists per 100K population compared to the USA), we seek forward this opportunity to create DrAid, an AI assistance for radiologists. At present, DrAid has been Go-live for over 100 hospitals and is expanded to the USA market. Besides, per our study, about 30% of radiologists can miss abnormal findings where ‘second opinion AI assistance’ can help improve patient outcomes and bring more productivity to radiologists.
