Artificial Intelligence vs COPD: The Fight for Patient Health
3:00pm - 4:00pmTuesday, February 12
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
Geisinger Health System is using a unique and powerful cognitive machine to drive down rates of avoidable admissions for COPD patients. Applied within the system’s largest medical center, this AI solution is helping identify the sub-group of COPD patients at risk of an acute exacerbation (AECOPD). Approximately 50% of AECOPD are not reported by patients, but AECOPD drives 2.4% of acute hospitalizations. Leveraging cognitive machine technology, Geisinger is able to pin point those COPD patients at a 30x risk of an avoidable admission and the interventions that will most likely keep a patient out of the hospital. During this session, the speakers will provide an overview of the project, current and projected clinical performance/impact and key lessons learned in the application of AI to reduce complications for patients with chronic conditions.
