New tools and cures: New means of diagnoses possible by virtue of AI will gain market adoption rapidly. As a tool used by the existing healthcare system to improve outcomes, they face limited barriers to adoption. AI will also enable drug discovery repurposing to tackle diseases with smaller spreads that traditionally don’t make sense for big-pharma R&D. We’re already seeing early progress here with diagnostic companies Freenome, Grail and 3Scan as well as the drug repurposing chemists at Recursion Pharmaceutical.
Databases are great at storing data and they excel at combining and retrieving data. They do it by using unique identifiers. Without the identifier, data cannot be joined accurately or confidently.
ey all are pro…r new technology to solve inefficiencies, reduce costs, and improve the patient/doctor experience. When I went to see an orthopedist for a shoulder injury a few months ago, I witnessed one of many pain points first hand: physician documentation. Doctors spend hours inputting patient information or use expensive documentation services, such as human scribes, to transcribe the encounter for them. My orthopedist was just one of several customer conversations that reinforced the fact that physician technology was in desperate need of technological innovation. With a variety of ways to do documentation today, they all are problematic due to cost, quality, and/or user experience reasons. Healthcare IT systems are fundamentally broken requiring doctors to spend hours each week entering notes, cost codes, and other basic clerical data. This leads to physician burnout and limits patient throughput. Notable Health is building the system of intelligence for healthcare by applying artificial intel…
i. Look for clearinghouses that can provide an application programming interface (API) for these types of transactions instead of files going back and fort. This theoretically shouldn’t be hard to find, since most of the established clearinghouses like Trizetto have been catching up to the offerings of startups like PokitDok.
