THe innocens team
Innocens BV is built on a cross functional team bringing together healthcare, technology, data and artificial intelligence expertise, with a clear intent to build a solution that is useful in a local clinical setting, but scalable to hospitals across the world.
Our multidisciplinary approach has led to the creation of technology that tackles the modern-day struggle on how to handle privacy, variable medical context and regulatory issues when dealing with sensitive healthcare data into one AI based Clinical Decision Support Solution.
