Applied Quantum Computing together with its collaborators have recently been awarded a Proof of Concept grant funded by the National Quantum Computing Centre (“NQCC”) to investigate the application of quantum computing techniques to use cases in the field of Operational Healthcare.
The UK NHS brings together many complex procedural tasks at a large scale on an everyday basis. Intrinsically many of the processes involved in delivering these services involve a form of optimisation to ensure available service capacity and patient benefit are jointly maximised. Many of these processes have the potential for quantum computational techniques to be able to deliver improved solutions.
With the help of this grant we and our partners will identify potential use cases and complete a proof of concept demonstration of how quantum computing techniques can be beneficially applied.
