harrison.ai has been named on the 2021 AFR BOSS Most Innovative Companies List today, ranking at number two in the healthcare category.

harrison.ai is honoured to be recognised as one of Australia and New Zealand’s Most Innovative Companies. The prestigious annual list, published by The Australian Financial Review and Boss Magazine, is based on a rigorous assessment process managed by Australia’s leading innovation consultancy, Inventium, in conjunction with a panel of industry expert judges.

harrison.ai was ranked number two on the healthcare list, out of over 700 nominated organisations assessed across Australia and New Zealand. The assessment measures a top innovation implemented in the past two years. Specifically, the judges look at how valuable the problem is that the innovation is solving, the quality and uniqueness of the solution, and the level of impact that the innovation has had.

Inventium also assesses internal elements such as innovation culture, strategy, resources and process, which demonstrate a sustainable and repeatable approach to innovation. The full list can be viewed in today's Australian Financial Review. harrison.ai was thrilled to be recognised for its innovative business model. The company builds joint ventures that create AI solutions using existing datasets, to create clinically useful and scalable products. Its major venture in the past two years is annalise.ai.

In 2019 harrison.ai partnered with I-MED Radiology Network to explore AI solutions to support radiologists and other clinicians who may be reviewing medical imaging patient studies.

annalise.ai launched its first enterprise solution this year with Annalise CXR, a chest x-ray decision-support product to help detect a comprehensive list of the most common findings such as lung nodules, spinal wedge fractures and misplaced nasogastric tubes.

Annalise CXR detects 124 findings on a chest x-ray, and significantly improves the radiologist’s classification accuracy in 80% of findings, meaning that radiologists are less likely to miss findings, and reassured that their decisions are accurate thanks to the second opinion of the AI algorithm.

harrison.ai CEO Dr Aengus Tran said of the awards: “It’s an honour to come second in the Healthcare category, for our approach to building companies in the healthcare technology sector and the speed and scale at which we’ve been able to work since we launched harrison.ai in 2018. With 250 staff across the globe, we’re looking forward to bringing new, innovative, and market-leading products such as Annalise CXR to market and putting Australia on the map as a global leader in innovation.”

Dr Amantha Imber, Founder, Inventium said of the companies who made the list: “Inventium is proud to announce the 2021 Most Innovative Companies list in conjunction with the AFR. After the enormous impact 18 months (and counting) of a global pandemic has had on the way we live, it's so inspiring to see all the amazing innovations our winners have created to help make our lives better."
