$7.5 million for artificial intelligence research has potential to transform health care

The Morrison Government is investing $7.5 million for research into the use of artificial intelligence in health care.

Research into the use of AI is likely to provide significant benefits, including improved clinical decision making, new approaches in healthcare delivery and helping patients to better manage their own health.

AI for better health, aged care and disability services was recently identified as one of the top three areas where Australia is well positioned to transform existing industries and build new ones, including opportunities to export solutions worldwide.

Focus Group on "Artificial Intelligence for Health"

The ITU/WHO Focus Group on artificial intelligence for health (FG-AI4H) works in partnership with the World Health Organization (WHO) to establish a standardized assessment framework for the evaluation of AI-based methods for health, diagnosis, triage or treatment decisions. Participation in the FG-AI4H is free of charge and open to all.

 ​​Parent group > ITU-T​ Study Group 16​ Topic groups (TGs) investigate use cases within specific health domains with corresponding AI/ML tasks.

The promise of AI in healthcare

The recent announcement that the Mayo Clinic and Google are partnering to use advanced cloud computing, data analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) to accelerate medical research and treatment generated a lot of enthusiastic healthcare industry buzz.

Additionally, because ASC patient volume and the number of approved procedures have increased substantially over the last decade, insurance claims have increased as well, requiring a dedicated effort to expedite processing and minimize delays and denials.

While current medical records are primarily kept in electronic health records (EHRs), those records are usually stored on servers and incomplete, often because they are incompatible with other data sources, pre-date newer EHRs, or are paper chart-based.

  To facilitate a clean transfer from a legacy system to a clinically actionable target system in ASCs (and after manual data extraction in the case of paper records), digital robots can supplant time-consuming administrative tasks normally delegated to staff.

The robots, using machine learning, are programed to search and select relevant historical data such as allergies, medications, and previous medical procedures for capture and conversion, ensuring both data integrity and compliance with health record standards.

Given the market dynamics in ASCs in the U.S., with large numbers of joint ventures, acquisitions and consolidations, interoperability between multiple platforms, as well as between payers and specialty medical practices, is vital to consistency and stability in the revenue cycle.

By investing in and improving AI capability and pursuing opportunities to automate functions that are prone to human error, ASCs can ensure they remain on the forefront of patient care while reducing the risks of costly administrative mistakes.

Clarification: Health Care-Artificial Intelligence story

In a story Nov. 24, The Associated Press reported that an artificial intelligence program featuring a talking image of the Greek philosopher Aristotle is starting to help University of Southern California students cope with stress.

Paging Dr. Robot: Artificial intelligence moves into care By TOM MURPHY AP Health Writer The next time you get sick, your care may involve a form of the technology people use to navigate road trips or pick the right vacuum cleaner online.

Artificial intelligence is spreading into health care, often as software or a computer program capable of learning from large amounts of data and making predictions to guide care or help patients.

It already detects an eye disease tied to diabetes and does other behind-the-scenes work like helping doctors interpret MRI scans and other imaging tests for some forms of cancer.

Researchers say this push into medicine is at an early stage, but they expect the technology to grow by helping people stay healthy, assisting doctors with tasks and doing more behind-the-scenes work.

Ask Ari is making its debut at USC this semester to give students easy access to advice on dealing with loneliness, getting better sleep or handling other complications that crop up in college life.

Ari does not replace a therapist, but its designers say it will connect students through their phones or laptops to reliable help whenever they need it USC senior Jason Lewis didn’t think the program would have much for him when he helped test it because he wasn’t seeking counseling.

Eventually, the company wants to have AI diagnose and treat some minor illnesses, Bates said Researchers say much of AI’s potential for medicine lies in what it can do behind the scenes by examining large amounts of data or images to spot problems or predict how a disease will develop, sometimes quicker than a doctor.
