Northwell Health adds AI for readmissions to its EMR

Jessica Kim Cohen - Print  | 

New Hyde Park, N.Y.-based Northwell Health is integrating artificial intelligence software into its EMR at 15 hospitals in an attempt to decrease avoidable readmissions.

The health system is implementing Jvion's cognitive machine software, which identifies at-risk patients based on medical history and social determinants of health information, such as lack of access to transportation or housing insecurity. The AI software also recommends steps to mitigate a patient's risk of a readmission.

Northwell Health will focus on readmissions and avoidable admissions within its managed care population during the initial implementation phase.
