Machine Learning and Predictive Analytics
Jessica, thanks for a thoughtful article. We work with a variety of healthcare companies that continue to find new ways to use analytics to predict and therefore better treat patient issues. For example, I recently spoke with the COO of a company that is helping healthcare providers use machine learning to identify and better track patients that are more likely to stop taking prescribed medication. This is one of many ways to prevent avoidable patient problems by getting smarter about our patient population.
It all hinges on reliable cross-platform data integration.
