In 2019, we made a strategic move into the rapidly evolving healthcare sector by investing in EQL, a fast-growth health-tech organisation dedicated to empowering people to take control of their healthcare needs through state-of-the-art technologies.
EQL’s first solution, Phio Access, is a musculoskeletal (MSK) digital triage support tool that uses conversational artificial intelligence to guide patients through an initial assessment of their MSK condition.
Even before the coronavirus pandemic, this initial assessment could take up to four months. Digital transformation of the process enables faster access to physiotherapy and advice which expedites recovery, improving the patient’s short and long-term health outcomes.
In just 12 months, EQL has partnered with three of the largest providers to the NHS in the UK, gained early traction internationally with insurers and providers and won multiple health innovation awards.
