Sanome is delighted to formally introduce our Clinical Advisory Team.
Led by Dr Benjamin Viaris de Lesegno, Dorothy Bean RN, and Dr Amira Bhaiji. They bring a wide-range of expertise and support our essential understanding of domestic and international healthcare systems and importantly, how hospitals work from the inside-out. The team is comprised of Senior Doctors, Senior Nurses, Medical Academics, Speciality Training Doctors, and Allied Health Professionals. The insight and support each member of the team brings, continues to further our insight and understanding of the need and practical engagement of the tools we are building, for clinicians and patients.
Crucially to Sanome, these advisors ensure we remain true to our mission as a patient-centric company. Meet the team in their own words below.
Dr Benjamin Viaris de Lesegno
I am a clinical and academic doctor, a humanitarian practitioner and a Healthtech entrepreneur.
I have been an NHS consultant since 2016. I trained in France where I practiced Obstetrics and Gynaecology. I also have an MSc in Genetics and participated in research and teaching in my daily life. I have been on several humanitarian missions and have worked in places as different as the slums of India, Syrian refugee camps at the beginning of the war, the Jungle of Calais with migrant population from Africa, the Middle East or South east Asia. As an entrepreneur, I am the co-founder and former CMO of Leva Clinic, the first digital chronic pain clinic in the UK. I was also the Healthtech chapter lead at la French Tech and a fellow of the NHS Clinical Entrepreneurship Program.
Dorothy Bean RN
I am a registered adult and children’s nurse, and health visitor. I have worked in specialist practice and senior management in the NHS and private sectors as well as in Higher Education where I taught cancer and palliative care studies and research methods. Teaching research studies fuelled my interest in data, followed by my involvement in informatics and more latterly with startups.
My interest in Sanome is driven by the benefits it can bring to patients and to nursing by smarter uses of data. This is all driven by a desire to make a material difference to people’s lives.
Dr Amira Bhaiji
I am currently practicing at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. My current academic research is within Cardiovascular Medicine. Alongside this, I am a clinical tutor associated with the University of Oxford. One of my primary goals at Sanome is to support the clinical research identifying biomarkers connected to preventable hospital acquired complications, as we co-design and develop an in-hospital integrated tool for clinicians and patients.
Sanome is providing a solution to the recurring pitfalls that have been tolerated in clinical care. The innovation through acknowledgment of holistic care and providing a pragmatic yet creative digital solution I think is what sets Sanome apart.
