Teens with obesity find artificial intelligence coach helpful in weight-loss program

ORLANDO (May 16, 2019) - Researchers at Nemours Children's Health System have found that an artificial intelligence (AI) behavioral coach, nicknamed Tess (X2ai, Inc), is feasible and useful for behavioral counseling of adolescent patients in a weight management program.

The study, published today in the journal Translational Behavioral Medicine, demonstrates adolescents' willingness and positive reaction to engaging in SMS text conversations with the chatbot technology that simulates human interactions.

'Nemours uses innovative tools, such as telemedicine health coaching and text reminders, to help patients and families achieve their weight-loss goals, and overcome the time and resource demands of regular office visits,' said Lloyd Werk, MD, MPH, director of the Healthy Choices Clinic at Nemours Children Hospital in Orlando.

'A natural next step was adding an AI behavioral coach to allow more frequent and shorter interactions to keep patients engaged on the path toward healthier behaviors, as well as provide an extra layer of care outside of office hours.'

Working with behavioral specialists, the team spent two years pre-populating Tess with hundreds of prompts and responses to counsel obese and pre-diabetic adolescents, including expressions of empathy and compassion for their weight-loss struggles.

The chatbot was also customized to interact on the goals of specific individuals, such as a teenage boy who committed to playing basketball to be more active and a girl who shared her interest in cooking and exchanged messages around healthy food choices.

Global AI: Defined and Refined in the Health Care Sector

they further describe machine learning as “a subset of AI that uses algorithms that give computers the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed.” The researchers evaluated instances in high-income countries (HICs) as well as low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) where AI is being used, tested, or considered in the healthcare sector, leaving them with more than 240 examples.

Data includes, per the authors: Processing is three-pronged, they continue: Finally, the action consists of four key parts: Collectively, the examples they determined most relevant to global health are: AI Use Cases: Better Together AI use cases to stratify into four broad functional areas: Population Health, Individual Health (including care routing and care services), Health Systems, and Pharma.

Care Services was specified even further, including a timeline of how use cases are applied: Prevention, Diagnosis, Acute Treatment, and Chronic Treatment and Follow-up: Three use cases fall under the Acute Treatment and Chronic Treatment and Follow-up umbrellas: Monitoring (inpatient monitoring, device monitoring), AI-facilitated care (self-care guidance, psych counseling), and AI-facilitated care (robotic surgery, robotic PT).

How Will Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare Transform Clinical Experiences?

Without surprise, artificial intelligence continues to be of critical focus across the digital health ecosystem.

Click image to enlarge With chronic conditions increasing in prevalence, respondents see AI and machine learning holding major transformative potential for improving care, with more than half of respondents citing conditions like cancer, heart disease and diabetes as priority areas for leveraging these innovations.

Like any exciting new form of health innovation, determining how it will address clinical needs should occur before implementation occurs to ensure the best strategy, as Claus Duedal Pedersen, Denmark Hospital and Health Care touches on in the following HIMSS TV clip.

“The [HIMSS] Health Story Project was founded on the premise that a central component of medical records is the narrative, textual information that conveys the patient’s unique story as well as the clinician’s thoughts and rationale for treatment decisions.

It derives contextual meaning from the clinician’s textual notes and unlocks critical portions of the record for both clinical and administrative uses.” AI will take time to prove its promise, but based on our research and the applications we’re currently exploring, the promise of these innovations will be worth it.
