ai in healthcare
AI is revolutionizing the health care pipeline
We partner with hospitals and research institutes (e.g. MGH, Dana Farber and others)
We are developing information extraction models from medical reports and images
We will exploit the extracted information to produce population-based studies, provide risk assessments and support clinical decisions
It is just matter of a time before Artificial Intelligence will revolutionize the heathcare pipeline. From risk assessment to disease diagnosis, from care delivery to administrative tasks, AI is set to boost healthcare efficiency, radically improving its quality and drastically reducing its costs. When machines will be able to automatically assess patient needs and smartly allocate resources, patients will enjoy shorter waiting lists and receive more personalized care.
In the United States, the Center for Data Innovation has already called for a national strategy to guide the AI explosion and its application to healthcare. Similar initiatives are currently happening all over the world.
In our project, we will focus on various types of cancer and heart failure data. We will cooperate closely with hospitals and research institutes (e.g. MGH, Dana Farber, and others) to develop models for the automatic extraction of information from medical reports and images. Such information will be then provided in a structured form to be exploited for population-based studies, and for supporting risk assessment and clinical decisions.
