IntroductionWe are using proven technologies and patents from IBM to seek to transform the effectiveness and efficiency of healthcare delivery through the introduction of intelligent workflows supported by artificial intelligence.Our overall aim is to develop new methods of continuous service improvement which will eventually streamline a care pathway, improve patient outcomes and optimise the sustainability of healthcare provision. This is achieved through the reduction in the number of non-value adding tasks currently conducted by the clinical workforce and the provision of data-driven service improvement insights.The vision for the enabling technology is a platform that provides 'plug and play' integration with existing NHS digital systems, data-driven coordination of patient care across provider collaboratives enabled through the use of artificial intelligence, robotic process automation and unwarranted variation detection and analysis.We are looking for candidates that are:* Excellent cross-team communicators* Highly motivated and self-reliant* Meticulous about attention to detail* Flexible and approachable* Enthusiastic about software and healthcare IT* Comfortable in a start up environmentYour Role and ResponsibilitiesPurpose of RoleOur Data & AI team is looking for a skilled and experienced data science engineer with hands-on experience in the development of AI models.
