Follow the Tumor: How Oncology R&D is Leading the Charge in AI Implementation

 

In 2017, the American Cancer Society awarded $112 million for cancer research.[1] The National Institute of Health FY17 budget for cancer research was nearly $6 billion.[2]

Pharma companies are pouring billions of R&D dollars into developing new treatments for cancer and are looking for the best ways to maximize those investments. One of the, most effective research tools available and one increasingly leveraged by biopharma is artificial intelligence (AI), used to help unlock the complex mechanisms of cancer.

Oncology is an enormously complicated field, so it’s no surprise that...

Revisiting 2018 Healthcare Predictions: 5 That Got It Right

The new year has just begun and the flurry of predictions for 2019 are popping up everywhere. Healthcare thought leaders have joined in offering their forecasts and ruminations around what we can expect over the next 12 months. We did the same and asked prominent thought leaders to offer their opinions in our prediction post earlier this year.

But what about the predictions made a year ago? How did the 2018 predictions actually turn out and what will continue into 2019? 

We took a look back to see what we could find. As expected, there were hits and misses but there were five that were on...

2019: The Year AI Becomes Mainstream in Healthcare

 

If “following the money” is the quickest path to the root of a trend, then 2019 promises to be the year artificial intelligence takes center stage in the healthcare industry.

By 2024, AI in the U.S. healthcare market is set to exceed $10 billion according to a recent Global Market Insights report.[1] As nearly eight out of ten healthcare executives who responded to a recent cross-industry survey said their organizations are ramping up investments in big data analytics and AI, it should come as no surprise that the market is truly ramping up.[2] Nearly 80 healthcare AI startups raised...

The Rise of White Box AI:  Why It’s Healthcare’s Next Chapter

Abraham Maslow famously said, “If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.”

With all the buzz surrounding artificial intelligence (AI), it’s tempting to view it as an all-encompassing tool that can be employed to solve healthcare’s myriad of problems.  In fact, there are a number of debates taking place over what AI and machine learning (ML) can and can’t do. The reality is that there are a range of AI technologies that solve very different types of problems. There are distinct use cases for each type of AI, from advanced analytics to deep learning to causal AI. But as we...

Social Determinants: The Missing Data Piece to Personalized Care?

Some experts estimate that between 60 to 80 percent of a person’s health condition is influenced by social factors, far outpacing the impact of direct clinical care¹.

Nutrition, housing, transportation, literacy and education, safety, language and social support are social determinants of health (SDOH) and are key drivers of health outcomes.

The World Health Organization defines SDOH as “the conditions in which people are born, grow, work, live, and age, and the wider set of forces and systems shaping the conditions of daily life.”²

Leaders across healthcare are recognizing the power of...

Empowering Patients: How Individuals with MS Are Contributing to the Fight to Find A Cure

There’s an often-quoted adage that if you want something done right, do it yourself. Unfortunately, in healthcare, that’s not a reality for most patients. Instead, those suffering from illness and disease must wait for researchers and clinicians to find and develop treatments and therapies that can provide a cure, treatment or relief.

But things are changing. iConquerMS is a ground-breaking initiative that empowers people with multiple sclerosis (MS) to help drive MS research and accelerate efforts toward improving treatments and finding a cure for the disease.

Precision Medicine, No Longer a Future State

It always surprises me that when attending industry conferences, the discussions inevitably revolve around “the future” of  artificial intelligence, machine learning and personalized medicine. My reaction? These innovations and practices aren’t impending, they’re already here.

Giving Thanks for Pilgrims, Pioneers and a New World

It’s Thanksgiving and a good time to remember the pilgrims. Nearly 400 years ago, a hardy band of about 100 Pilgrims set sail from England on the Mayflower, heading for America. They were willing to brave the perils of the Atlantic in order to fulfill their hopes and dreams of a new life.

After 66 days at sea, they reached land and settled in Plymouth, Massachusetts, where they    established a colony. But their struggles weren’t over. They faced a cold, hard New England winter and nearly half the settlers perished.

A year after their arrival, following the first harvest, the Pilgrims...
