We believe that AI presents a powerful opportunity to tackle challenges faced by health care systems worldwide. Together with Wellcome Trust, MIT Jameel Clinic is teaming up with hospitals around the globe to bring AI into mainstream healthcare. In providing free access to an array of cutting-edge AI tools, we hope to contribute the unique expertise of Jameel Clinic researchers to empower healthcare systems by accelerating the mainstream usage of AI tools on a global scale.

Bringing the power of AI to healthcare

MIT Jameel Clinic was founded in 2018 with the mission of democratizing AI in healthcare. That year, Jameel Clinic AI faculty lead Regina Barzilay and PhD student Adam Yala were developing a deep learning breast cancer risk assessment tool called Mirai that could perform consistently across globally diverse populations. Two years later, Mirai would become the most advanced breast cancer risk assessment tool and the very first clinical AI tool developed with the support of MIT Jameel Clinic that was mature enough to deploy in clinical settings.

Wellcome Trust, with its goal of delivering state-of-the-art healthcare to underserved populations, offered their support to Jameel Clinic to bring tools like Mirai to hospitals around the world. But Mirai is only the beginning — we are continuing to support the development of an array of clinical AI tools using breakthrough technology that can be readily deployed in the near future.

"The implementation of AI in Hospital Santa Marcelina is the pilot for the understanding of the benefits and difficulties of a risk-based screening program vs. a traditional age-based program. Our goal is to have a risk-based screening program available to all Public Health patients in Brazil. Our journey is just starting!"

“In Chile, there are no cancer screening policies as defined by the WHO, only recommendations and for some types of cancers, financial coverage for the
population. Therefore, there are tremendous opportunities regarding cancer prevention and early detection, especially for lower income people.”

“For patients with breast cancer, learning about the pathology can help them regain control of their lives, especially when they are shown the hopeful data of healing and recovery.”

“Widespread awareness of benefits of AI technology will increase the level of trust of referring physicians and patients regarding imaging tests.”
