Amazon's HealthLake can predict patient mortality: 4 details

Amazon launched a service for hospitals that aggregates information into a data lake and standardizes it with machine learning. Now, HealthLake can offer patient outcome predictions, like mortality, based on stored data, according to a June 10 blog post by Amazon.

Four details:

1. Amazon HealthLake, which was launched in December, is HIPAA-eligible and hosts the deidentified health-related data of more than 40,000 patients who have stayed in critical care units. The data stores information such as demographics, vital signs, lab test results, medication, imaging reports, provider notes and more. 

2. Healthcare providers can use the data to spot trends and find anomalies to make predictions about the progression of disease, clinical trial efficacy and accuracy of insurance premiums.

3. HealthLake can produce patient outcome predictions, such as mortality rates, acute or chronic condition-triggered hospital visits or hospital readmission.

4. The program is designed so providers, payers and pharmaceutical companies can predict results and recommend early intervention, improve outreach to patients and reduce costs.
