McLaren Applied Technologies and the University of Oxford have announced a new partnership that aims to improve the efficiency of patient care and optimise the treatment journey for serious conditions. 

The agreement, which was signed today at McLaren’s headquarters in Woking, will focus on three core areas: 

  • Surgical simulations and outcomes monitoring – creating programmes which advance surgeon training methods, improve patient preparation for surgery and enhance the monitoring of surgery effectiveness.
  • Clinical care optimisation – improving patient care journeys in key need areas, while reducing complications and length of stay in hospital.
  • Facilities optimisation - reviewing the management and allocation of critical medical resources (such as emergency departments) and clinical staff in order to optimise efficiency and availability.
