Intermountain unveils new AI-powered tech platform

Salt Lake City-based Intermountain Health has developed a new artificial intelligence-powered platform designed to aid clinicians in making bedside diagnoses. 

Initially, the platform is being used as an updated version of the ePneumonia app, which aids clinicians in diagnosing and treating pneumonia at Murray, Utah-based Intermountain Medical Center. 

The updated app enabled patients to get the right antibiotics sooner and improved mortality rates, according to an April 20 Intermountain news release shared with Becker's. Results were published in a series of studies. 

"In the studies, we demonstrated a 36 percent relative decrease in 30-day mortality for pneumonia patients, which is more than 100 lives saved annually," Nathan Dean, MD, section chief of pulmonary and critical care medicine at Intermountain Medical Center and principal investigator of the studies, said in the news release.

The health system plans to expand the platform for other specialties and diagnoses. 

The platform is designed to integrate with major EHR vendors and meet Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources standards.
