    We're problem solvers, driven by a simple desire to do work that matters. We’re constantly evolving ourselves and leveraging the latest technologies to build leading clinical AI solutions with people at the centre of everything we do.

    We’re here to improve access to quality healthcare globally and positively impact one million lives a day. Our mission is bold and ambitious, and it’s one that is shared by our team who shares our values - to imagine more, do it right and make the hard things scale.

    To achieve this, at harrison.ai we’ve brought together an inspiring team of AI/ML scientists, clinicians, engineers (and many more!) who focus on combining the ever-growing computing power of machines, with the best medical expertise, to create comprehensive AI products that can scale medical predictions globally and make a meaningful impact on patient lives.  

    Following our early success building an AI algorithm for IVF provider Virtus Health, from 2019 we have grown exponentially to 250 employees worldwide and raised a total of AU$158 million via our Series B in 2021. We have since applied our AI technology to other healthcare domains including radiology, launching our first joint venture annalise.ai in 2019 with Australia’s largest medical imaging company, I-MED, where our focus is to create comprehensive AI solutions to help diagnose medical images. In 2021, harrison.ai announced a new partnership with Sonic Healthcare (ASX:SHL), a leader in medical diagnostics, to co-develop and commercialise new clinical AI solutions in pathology.
