Exclusive: London’s UCLH creates tool predicting 90% of no-shows – potentially saving NHS millions

A leading hospital has developed artificial intelligence to predict which patients are most likely to miss appointments.

University College Hospital in London created an algorithm using records from 22,000 appointments for MRI scans, allowing it to identify 90% of those patients who would turn out to be no-shows. The machine intelligence is not perfect – it also incorrectly flags about half of patients attending appointments as being at risk of not showing.
