A common use of artificial intelligence (AI) in healthcare involves natural language processing (NLP) applications that can understand and classify clinical documentation. But there is more that AI can bring to the party. This interesting information came to us from Science in their article, “Artificial intelligence for global health.”

AI has demonstrated significant progress in the detection, diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Going forward, AI could play an important role in addressing global health care inequities at the individual patient, health system and population levels. However, challenges in developing and implementing AI applications must be addressed.

Big data from multiple sources, and in vast amounts, is difficult to aggregate and analyze. With predictive analytics, clinicians can discover patterns in multiple sources of data that can lead to better decision-making. 

Data Harmony is a fully customizable suite of software products designed to maximize precise, efficient information management and retrieval. Our suite includes tools for taxonomy and thesauri construction, machine aided indexing, database management, information retrieval and explainable AI.
