About

Worldwide, 1 billion people are living with mental health conditions plus a further 50 million with dementia. These numbers are growing daily. We exist because we want all of these people to live better lives.

Our vision is that with the right data and information, the global community can change the trajectory of research to develop better mental health and dementia drug treatments, pathways and services.

With our Network Partners, we have created the largest and most in-depth mental health and dementia dataset based upon psychiatric clinical records.

We are specialists in mental health and dementia and previously managed the UK-CRIS programme for the National Institute for Health Research.

Over the last 5 years, the team has been unlocking inaccessible information through AI-led translation of 3 million de-identified patient records into over 440 billion data points.

We work with Network Partners, Clinical Researchers, drug discovery companies and service improvement teams to develop precision psychiatry models often in partnership with the Department of Psychiatry, University of Oxford.

“Akrivia Health presents a real opportunity for accelerating and translating new discovery medicine, including prevention and treatment, into better health outcomes for sufferers of mental illness and their families. We're able to add value by continually enriching the clinical content available to clinicians, researchers and scientists which will truly deliver many more opportunities to predict, identify, prevent or manage mental health conditions in the UK."

Our Story

Cristal Health Limited (branded as Akrivia Health) was established in May 2019 through a spin-out from the Department of Psychiatry, University of Oxford.

We are aiming to:

  • change the trajectory of clinical research by enabling our Network to work with over 440 billion data points of de-identified patient and clinician interactions
  • create the leading global community of individuals and organisations who are focused on improving the lives of one billion people with mental illness and the 50 million with dementia

Mike Denis (CEO) and David Newton (COO), have been spent the last five years developing trusted data partnerships with NHS organisations through the UK-CRIS programme as funded by the National Institute of Health Research and Medical Research Council.

Cristal Health Ltd is a private company, partly owned by the NHS, and works in partnership with the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Oxford. The business will seek to re-invest all surplus profits into clinical research and developing a global community to accelerate improvement in peoples’ lives.
