Mayo Clinic, Stanford mix medicine, data science to boost healthcare AI

Physicians from Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic and data scientists from Palo Alto, Calif.-based Stanford Health Care are coming together to advance artificial intelligence in healthcare.

Chieh-Ju Chao, MD, and Chia-Chun Chiang, MD, a married couple of Mayo physicians, will be the new program's first visiting scholars at Stanford.

Dr. Chao, a cardiologist, intends to research the use of AI to augment echocardiography, while Dr. Chiang, a neurologist, plans to study how AI might predict which medications will stave off debilitating migraines.

“Right now … it's a trial-and-error process, where we start with one medication and wait three months to see if it helps," she said in a May 30 Stanford news release. "I'm hoping to be able to apply advanced machine learning technologies to the Mayo Clinic's established headache database to help predict good matches or to develop personalized treatment plans for patients with migraine."

She will also work with Nigam Shah, PhD, chief data scientist at Stanford Health Care, to analyze EHR data to identify migraine patients at risk of stroke or cardiovascular disease.
