- Drawing on Stephens’ in-depth knowledge Qure.ai is looking to show how AI can dramatically improve diagnostic pathways.
Qure.ai, one of world’s leading providers of AI for healthcare, has appointed Darren Stephens as Senior Vice President & Commercial Head UK and Europe to support the company’s ambitious expansion plans in the United Kingdom and Europe. While adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) in fields such as medical imaging is in the early stages across Europe, Qure.ai has seen growing acceptance among medical professionals of AI as a critical tool to alleviate workloads and address backlogs in diagnosing patients.
Darren brings a wealth of experience gained from working in pharmaceuticals, infection prevention, point of care, diagnostics and managed services across both pathology and imaging to deliver solutions across Europe including the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) and Ireland’s Health Service Executive (HSE).
We have ambitious plans to grow the business in the next 12 months and are delighted to bring Darren on board to lead the European business,” said Prashant Warier, Founder and CEO, Qure.ai. “Darren joins us at a very exciting time for the company. With medical professionals across the region urgently needing to address backlogs in diagnostic pathways and improve the outcomes for patients, they are becoming more and more receptive to the potential of AI to speed up the reading and analysis of medical images.
Before joining Qure.ai, he was the Country Manager, UK and Ireland for Everlight Radiology Ltd, one of the fastest growing global teleradiology companies in the market, where Darren was responsible for the company’s commercial and implementation activities. Prior to that role, Darren led Core Laboratory & Point of Care Solutions for Roche in Ireland focused on disease areas including Oncology, Cardiac, Women’s Health, Bone, Infectious Diseases, Critical Care, all Lab Clinical Chemistry and Immunoassay Testing Systems. In Darren’s early career he also held roles at Ecolab and Pfizer in Ireland with responsibilities for sales and key account management.
The team at Qure have done an outstanding job bringing the solutions developed to date to clients and patients that need them the most. I look forward to building on this collective success and expanding our team to show the benefits of AI to medical professionals and ultimately help to improve diagnostic pathways for patients,” added Darren Stephens, SVP and Commercial Head UK & Europe, Qure.ai.
