Big data, analytics and AI could be the central stage in 2022

As a tradition, we have put together industry leaders who have thoughts and predictions about what the New Year will look like.Join us for the next few weeks as we Look at what we might see in 2022.

Clinical trial sponsors are increasingly relying on radiomics, the science of advanced image analysis, to enhance clinical trial strategies, provide information, and provide deeper insights into patient populations. By using AI and machine learning to extract new types of data from traditional images such as CT and PET scans, radiomix allows researchers to develop more quantitative and robust inclusion and exclusion criteria. You can predict patient outcomes. In addition, radiomics provide tools for objectively quantifying tumor and lesion characteristics that predict future biological behavior, enabling early understanding of potential pathways for disease progression. increase.

In 2022, healthcare institutions and life sciences researchers will continue to explore new ways to extract insights from real-world unstructured data. This data is often trapped in the memo section of the Electronic Health Record (EHR) and may contain important information such as symptoms, diagnoses, and results. Artificial intelligence, such as natural language processing (NLP), is increasingly trusted to understand EHR free-form texts, inform researchers of real-world evidence, and report quality care to clinicians. It will be so. By helping NLP understand the actual data, it will be possible to gain a deeper understanding of patients and illnesses in a shorter period of time than traditional approaches.

By continuing both tight labor markets and cost control measures towards 2022, we expect intelligent process automation and leveraged staffing to be an important alternative to the provider community. More hospitals and healthcare systems addressing severe staff shortages aim to automate previously manual services as a way to reduce costs and remain competitive. In addition, employee performance management, gamification, and other non-traditional tools play a greater role in managing remote employees who are not physically connected to your organization. This has a particular impact on the role of managers in hospitals such as IT and revenue cycle departments.

Pharmaceutical companies and life sciences continue to explore artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies to help solve bench-to-bedside data challenges faster. Find an organization that takes a new cloud-based approach to tools such as Natural Language Processing (NLP) that can be easily plugged into the existing workflow of data scientists without the need to implement an enterprise solution. Companies need agile tools that can be incorporated into existing processes to find the answers they need. It also takes months or years to implement potentially tedious enterprise software. In a cloud-first strategy, AI and ML technologies escalate drug discovery and development because data scientists can quickly find answers to specific tasks or multiple issues across the organization.

In health care, three factors increase the adoption of text analysis tools such as natural language processing (NLP):

  1. With the rapidly approaching deadlines for interoperability and patient access obligations, including the interoperability requirements for full-text medical records, organizations are finding ways to take advantage of the upcoming flood of unstructured data. I need it. Solutions such as NLP help provider and payer organizations process data to enhance predictive algorithms and improve clinical and financial outcomes.
  2. Tools such as NLP have been spotlighted by the massive emergence of large-scale technology and cloud vendors in the field of healthcare text analytics. These tools are now easily available in a convenient way through a cloud-based approach rather than traditional large-scale software deployments.
  3. This pandemic has rocked healthcare in several lasting ways, including increasing acceptance of cloud-based technologies that allow users to access data while working remotely. The pandemic also highlights the population inequality that affected the outcome and reveals social determinants of health beyond the information in patient structured data that can be done using technologies such as NLP. Raised awareness of the importance of things.

Data have sacrificed control of other very common health-related infections (HAIs), while hospitals are allocating more resources to infection prevention and control efforts to control the spread of COVID-19. It shows that. While it is true that a large number of patients with high-risk infections and sepsis were hospitalized last year, the CDC said that the increase in HAI in 2020 is also a result of lack of surge capacity and other operational challenges. I concluded. Towards 2022, the hospital aims to manage all HAIs in addition to COVID-19 with a more resilient care team, leveraging AI to support preventative and real-time monitoring of patients. We will focus more on technology than ever before. Staff with rapid risk identification and early clinical intervention opportunities.

Accelerating Change to Clinical Practice with New Evidence – Health systems are still addressing the widespread impact of pandemics, but quality improvement needs to continue to be focused on in the broader transition to value-based care. Quality improvement research initiatives in these organizations hold the key to improving patient outcomes and financial performance, but these are time-consuming programs that effectively surface new evidence for clinical practice. It makes it difficult to implement. We hope that the pandemic that created the weaknesses of current delivery systems will accelerate the spread of tools and solutions designed to shorten the cycle from identifying clinical problems to implementing evidence-based clinical solutions. doing.
