The National CLEAR Programme is delighted to be announcing the launch of a seven-month AI pilot which is open to seven NHS trusts across England.

It follows the programme’s development of a new clinically-designed AI powered patient consultation summary tool which can transform workforce productivity enabling more time for patients.

Expressions of interest are now being sought for the pilot which offers seven NHS trusts (one per region) to become early adopters and co-designers of the tool within pre-operative assessment (anaesthetics). Trusts will take part in an onboarding process in the summer, with the pilot going live in the autumn.

CLEARnotes converts clinician-patient conversations automatically into clinical notes – leveraging AI and speech recognition technologies to produce clear, structured summaries – with the ability to easily edit the text if needed. The tool has been developed by a team of NHS clinicians and industry experts, who have a deep understanding of the complexities of the NHS.

Two webinars offering further information are being held on Wednesday 29 May and Tuesday 4 June 2024. The deadline for expressions of interest is the 5pm on Monday 17 June.
