7 ways health systems are using AI to improve patient care

From automating clinicians' tasks to predicting disease, here are seven ways hospitals and health systems are using artificial intelligence to improve patient care:

  • Casey Canfield, PhD, a professor at Rolla-based Missouri University of Science and Technology, is partnering with SSM Health St. Louis University Hospital to study how artificial intelligence could help match kidney donors with recipients.

  • Children's Hospital Los Angeles received $2.8 million from the National Institutes of Health to use an artificial intelligence-based tool to help predict the optimal medication dosage that children in the ICU will need over time.

  • The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center partnered with Ibex Medical Analytics to deploy its artificial intelligence-based tool to support pathologists in diagnosing prostate cancer.

  • Nashville, Tenn.-based Ardent Health Services has partnered with software company Care.ai to implement the company's Virtual Nursing platform at Albuquerque, N.M.-based Lovelace Medical Center. The artificial intelligence-powered Virtual Nursing platform allows virtual nurses to manage a wide variety of patient care tasks that do not require physical proximity.

  • Fort Wayne, Ind.-based Parkview Health has partnered with neonatal medical technology company Neurobell to study the effectiveness of portable artificial intelligence-based electroencephalography equipment in detecting seizures in newborns.

  • Imaging company Endoluxe has entered into a know-how agreement with Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic to research the uses of artificial intelligence and machine learning in the treatment of bladder cancer.

  • Evanston, Ill.-based Northwestern University has launched the Center for Collaborative AI in Healthcare through the university's Institute for Augmented Intelligence in Medicine. The new facility will assist clinicians in applying AI to their treatment and research.
