About Chris Mansi

Chris Mansi, Co-Founder and CEO, is a neurosurgeon-turned-entrepreneur revolutionizing the field of stroke. He founded Viz.ai from the Stanford MBA program to solve a problem he experienced regularly during his neurosurgical residency; in acute time-sensitive conditions, it takes many hours to get the patient to the specialist doctor resulting in fewer than 10% of patients receiving brain saving treatment in time. Chris feels lucky to be able to combine a passion for neurosurgery with the transformational power of AI, to benefit patients who otherwise might end up severely disabled. “We want to improve lives by increasing access to life saving treatments, and make sure that every patient gets the best possible care available.”

Watch Chris’s 2018 TEDMED Hive Talk to see how artificial intelligence is helping to connect patients with the right doctor before it’s too late.
