This week’s Domain Knowledge highlights real-time examples of hospitals and health systems using artificial intelligence (AI) to improve patient care. We explore two very different use cases, looking at AI to prevent heart attacks and reduce hospital readmissions. We also examine AI utilization from different perspectives, a community hospital, and a large national health system.
AI is being used to prevent heart attacks in patients that don’t have symptoms, by identifying unstable plaque buildup that could rupture and lead to problems. How the Valley Hospital is using AI to prevent heart attacks, provides information on the approach this hospital has implemented.
Hospital readmissions can be difficult to manage, especially for hospitals providing care in underserved communities. Northwell Health reduces readmissions by 23% via artificial intelligence-driven predictions, highlights both the successes and challenges in using AI to identify at-risk patients through social determinants of health.
What’s the best way to implement AI in a community hospital, looks at one facility’s approach to using AI to benefit all hospital stakeholders. The team looked outside of radiology applications and focused on using AI to help them address long acquisition times for diagnostics and long wait times for the radiologist’s report on critical CT findings.
Looking at the use of AI from the perspective of a large national health system, Kaiser Permanente researchers push the envelope with AI and NLP, provides insight on the approach Kaiser is taking to use the power of AI to impact patient care.
That’s a wrap for this week’s review of news and happenings in the healthcare AI space. In closing, I’ll leave you with an invitation to learn more about the benefits of using an end-to-end AI platform to manage multiple applications across your clinical needs and offer you a personal demo of Ferrum’s platform and growing AI catalog.
