Novant Health taps Jvion as 1st partner for innovation, AI institute

Novant Health appointed Johns Creek, Ga.-based prescriptive analytics provider Jvion as the inaugural partner of the Winston-Salem, N.C.-based health system's new Institute of Innovation & Artificial Intelligence.

Novant announced the creation of the institute in June. The institute was launched with the mission of using AI and other advanced technology to generate data and insights for more personalized and accurate disease prediction, diagnosis and treatment, through collaborations with Novant's physician partners, technology companies, research groups, universities and other healthcare organizations.

As the institute's first partner, Jvion will apply its AI-enabled analytics to clinical and socioeconomic data from Novant and other government and private sources. Together, the organizations hope to develop a solution to recommend personalized treatments for congestive heart failure patients, with an ultimate goal of reducing readmissions for those patients.

"Partnering with innovators in analytics such as Jvion allows us to anticipate risk factors and effectively intervene through personalized treatment plans for our patients, saving time and money," said Eric Eskioglu, MD, Novant's executive vice president and chief medical officer, and co-leader of the new institute. "The implementation of this technology will transform the way we deliver care for our patients with CHF across the Carolinas and Virginia, thereby improving their quality of life and preventing unnecessary readmissions."
