SBRI : Improving Multimorbidity Acute Care Using Data Analytics, phase 1

Fund Name: SBRI : Improving Multimorbidity Acute Care Using Data Analytics, phase 1
Project Length: Up to 3 months
Project Value: Up to £10,000
Deadline: 03/03/2021


Multi-morbidity (two or more concurrent chronic conditions) is associated with poor quality health, reduced life expectancy, greater levels of social exclusion, and reduced employment opportunities.

The aim is to develop a data-driven solution that can improve and personalize the care plans for patients with multimorbidity when they have an emergency admission to hospital by introducing analytical models in the clinical system that could assist with the risk assessment of patients.

Fund details

In phase 1, you must:

  • engage with clinicians, patients and other stakeholders to understand data sets, ascertain end-user requirements and how information visualisation can be tailored to clinicians
  • outline requirements and plans for Phase 2

At this stage contracts will be awarded for phase 1 only. You must define your goals and outline your plan for phase 2. This is part of the full commercial implementation in your phase 1 proposal.

You must demonstrate a credible and practical route to market, so your application must include a plan to commercialise your results.

Phase 2 projects must:

  • develop automated mechanisms for identifying multimorbidity in patients admitted to emergency departments using clinical data from varied sources in collaboration with clinical and academic partners
  • develop AI and/or machine learning that will facilitate data extraction from new data sources and integrate into risk stratification models
  • develop algorithms to risk stratify individuals who are at risk of adverse outcomes including death or hospital readmission
  • develop end-user tools that permit real-time visualisation of data and risk stratification to support personalised clinical decision making
    develop a business plan

Phase 1 projects can have total costs of up to £10,000, inclusive of VAT.

Projects are expected to start by 5 May 2021 and can last up to 3 months.

To lead a project, you can:

  • be an organisation of any size
  • work alone or with others from business, research organisations, research and technology organisations or the third sector as subcontractors

Contracts will be awarded only to a single legal entity. However, if you can justify subcontracting components of the work, you can employ specialist consultants or advisers. This work will still be the responsibility of the main contractor.
