Meet the Team: Kevin McGlynn
In the first of a series of Meet the Team profiles, here is a chance to get to know Kevin McGlynn - our Technical Programme Manager.
What is your job and what does it entail?
I am Technical Programme Manager.
I oversee the implementation of our image and meta data sharing network and central data bank and catalogue of clinical data. This involves various work streams of infrastructure setup and data flow initiation with our network of Trust Partner sites and meeting the needs of our industry exemplar project partners.
What do you enjoy most about working with NCIMI?
I love the dynamic team working and passion from and with our partners to positively affect the outcomes for the patients our AI projects will reach. Every day is different and every day has reminders of how we're helping our partners and NHS patients.
What are the greatest challenges of your role?
The greatest challenge is trying to implement a network that is new to our partners and needs to support activity across 15 NHS Trusts, all while trying to keep our governance requirements aligned with the needs of our partners.
What do you think the future of AI in healthcare is?
The future of AI in healthcare seems like it will become less of a buzzword, and more of a regular fact of life. We're likely to all benefit from most fields of healthcare adopting AI technology in the future. These technologies will empower GPs, radiographers, etc., to use more of their time on patient facing tasks and less of their time on admin/operations/etc.
What do you like to do outside your role with NCIMI?
In my spare time I'm active around Oxford with my two boys. I'm also an ice hockey player and coach with Oxford University's men's and women's ice hockey teams. I'm also a volunteer for the Green Party and have sat in local council elections over the last 6 years.
