Your.MD takes safety seriously. So seriously that we’ve asked some of the most fiercely independent medical experts in the world to keep us on the right track.
We were the first to create an artificial intelligence (AI) self-assessment tool with an independent Clinical Advisory Board (CAB), and we did so with good reason. The board's objective is to guide our clinical team and safeguard the interests of everyone who uses our products. We’re very proud of the work they do, so we would like you to know who they are.
First up is the board’s Chairman Dr Mark Davies.
Mark brings more than 20 years' experience as a family doctor (general practitioner). He has worked for the last 10 years in a number of clinical leadership roles at The UK's Department of Health and Social Care, Cabinet Office and as Executive Medical Director of The NHS Information Centre. He is now Chief Medical Officer for IBM Europe and a Non-Executive Director of The BMJ.
Mark's industry experience and credentials make him the ideal fit as the Chair of our CAB. As a leading figure in health policy, informatics and system redesign, Mark's interests align directly with those of Your.MD.
Checking up on how we use statistics is Dr Nick Summerton.
Nick literally wrote the book on how to diagnose people by listening to what they say. Primary Care Diagnostics explains how to interpret and apply information obtained directly from the patient.
He has played a fundamental role in re-emphasising the importance of the patient's input into the diagnostic process and of using investigations only after careful consideration has been given to the costs and benefits from both the patient's and the health service's perspectives.
Much of Nick’s thinking underpins Your.MD’s approach to digital consultations.
By day, Nick is a family doctor and he has recently published Better Value Health Checks: A Practical Guide. He is a member of the Toyal College of General Practitioner (RCGP), a fellow of the Faculty of Public Health, a specialist advisor for the Care Quality Commission and sits on The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence’s (NICE) diagnostic advisory committee.
The board’s public health credentials are further bolstered by Prof Mahmood Adil.
Mahmood has 25 years of medical, public health and executive management experience in the NHS and USA. His current job is to oversee, as Medical Director, the health intelligence and protection functions for Scotland delivered through Information Services Division (ISD) and Health Protection Scotland (HPS).
He is an alumnus of the Harvard Kennedy School, the UK Prime Minister’s Top Management Programme, Common Purpose 20:20 and Yale School of Public Health, and he helped set up England’s Care Quality Commission and served as its Medical Director.
Next on the board is Dr Aomesh Bhatt.
Newly appointed Aomesh Bhatt, is a Senior Clinical Research Fellow in the Medical Sciences Division at the University of Oxford and has an interest in using regulatory frameworks to translate research into clinical practice.
He previously served as the overall Head of Medical Affairs and Clinical Development at RB where he assumed responsibility for global medical affairs, clinical development and health outcomes research for the Group.
Aomesh was a member of the NICE Technology Appraisal Committee for 6 years where he led several technology appraisals and spent 3 years on the NICE Guidelines Review Committee.
So, that’s the Clinical Advisory Board. They keep us on our toes and make sure we deliver to the highest possible clinical standards.
Clinical quality and patient safety is of paramount importance in healthcare, and is fundamental to Your.MD's endeavours. As a group of leading figures in health technology, health policy, informatics and system redesign, the members of the Your.MD CAB will provide advice and oversight for the company in its efforts to establish and grow the pre-primary self-care opportunity around the world.
