    Welcome to Babylon Health

    We're a technology and product company, looking to fundamentally change the way that people access healthcare around the globe.

    Being ill is difficult enough, getting healthcare shouldn’t be. For many of us getting access to healthcare can be inconvenient or costly. But for some, the problem is more serious: almost 50% of the global population has little access to quality healthcare.

    Yet irrespective of where we live, most of us have a mobile phone in our pocket. Our mobiles are getting smarter every year: mobile phones today are a thousand times more capable than they were only 10 years ago and they will be at least a thousand times more powerful in the next ten years. Can you imagine the possibilities?

    We're on a mission to put affordable, accessible healthcare into the hands of everyone, globally; our platform allows you to speak to a doctor within an hour, and we're automating many parts of the patient journey with a powerful series of AIs that can triage and diagnose patients, as well as predict future ailments.

    Technology at Babylon

    Natural language technologies

    We use the latest deep learning techniques to teach our digital doctor how to communicate with our users, how to understand their concerns, and how to make interactions with our human doctors as efficient as possible.

    Our clinical NLP engine can deal with both formal medical language as well as vernacular descriptions of symptoms. It automatically corrects spelling errors and outperforms current state-of-the-art open-source systems in both speed and accuracy.
