Indicators of this AI innovation in Health solutions include:
- Adaptive learning for next-generation doctors and nurses: Tomorrow’s clinicians get a strong start in medical and nursing education with adaptive learning powered by AI that optimizes student testing skills, remediation and performance in high-stakes USMLE or NCLEX exams with Firecracker® and PrepU®.
- Earlier intervention when it matters most: Minutes can be the difference between life and death for patients with hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) like sepsis or C.difficile. AI technology in Sentri7® and POCAdvisor is predicting infections faster so patients get every fighting chance.
- Unlocking hidden insights: Critical patient information lost in physician notes is extracted and mapped by Health Language®clinical natural language processing (cNLP) for better informed care and AI is eliminating barriers between siloed data across healthcare systems.
- Globalizing drug data: AI is being developed to dramatically accelerate and automate the mapping of highly variable drug data from countries around the world to Medi-Span’s trusted data to reduce medication errors, adverse drug events and unnecessary alerts.
Other rapid response innovations in clinical content and data science:
