Artificial Intelligence

This channel includes news and technology innovations for artificial intelligence (AI) software, also referred to as deep learning, cognitive computing and machine learning. AI technology is being integrated in radiology for imaging appropriate use criteria (AUC), clinical decision support, predictive analytics and to assist radiologists with improved workflow.

Change Healthcare announced innovative new artificial intelligence (AI) models, trained by expert physicians, which extract meaningful diagnostic information from text in EHRs. The first application of this technology will be within the InterQual AutoReview solution, which automates medical necessity reviews using real-time data from EHRs.

The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) has launched its fourth annual artificial intelligence (AI) challenge, a competition among researchers to create applications that perform a clearly defined clinical task according to specified performance measures. The challenge for competitors this year is to create machine-learning algorithms to detect and characterize instances of pulmonary embolism.

Six months after deployment, the no-show rate of the predictive model was 15.9%, compared with 19.3% in the preceding 12-month preintervention period — corresponding to a 17.2% improvement from the baseline no-show rate (p < 0.0001). The no-show rates of contactable and noncontactable patients in the group at high risk of appointment no-shows as predicted by the model were 17.5% and 40.3%, respectively (p < 0.0001).
