Improve patient outcomes and lower the cost of care with AI

Health and Life Sciences organisations use Faculty’s best-in-class AI technology daily to: 

  • Accelerate scientific research and drug development
  • Enhance operational decision making
  • Support data-driven planning and delivery of proactive care
  • Enable the safe development and deployment of AI
  • Build the data science capability of their internal teams

We support in three key areas


We help organisations develop data science roadmaps that measurably improve patient outcomes and system efficiency.


We build and deploy custom machine learning software to help organisations solve their most important problems.


We help teams build their in-house data science capability through tailored training programmes and long-term partnerships.
