University of Maryland Medical System to launch AI institute

University of Maryland Medical System is working in collaboration with the University of Maryland, Baltimore and the University of Maryland, College Park to establish the Institute for Health Computing. 

The new institute will focus on algorithms that enable precision patient care for diabetes, high blood pressure, risk of opioid overdose and other health risks, according to a Nov. 10 press release from University of Maryland. 

Researchers will also explore how immersive and 5G wireless technologies can boost the availability and efficacy of telehealth, and how virtual and augmented reality over 5G networks will expand the diagnostic capabilities of clinicians.

The goal is to harness advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning to evaluate secure and deidentified health data to diagnose, prevent and treat diseases in patients across the state of Maryland.

The institute is expected to open in leased space in early 2023, with final completion of laboratory and office space in the North Bethesda metro area in 2028, according to the press release.
