The information obtained can have immediate application and improve the national health systems. Early diagnoses can avoid hospitalisation of patients and according to Elena Bonfiglioli, who leads the Health Industry business for Microsoft in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, by only integrating and analysing big data it is possible to save 30% on public spending
The scopes of application of AI in the medical field are making it possible to trace new paths of research. Among these, one of the most promising is precision medicine
: the ability to perform diagnosis and treatment tailored to the individual patient.
By integrating information from the patient through databases and clinical analyses, it is possible to identify what are called alterations of pathways
that determine the onset of the disease.
An article presented on the occasion of the “12th International Conference on Health Informatics”, entitled Predictive AI Models for the Personalized Medicine
, underlines the potential offered by the use of predictive models with AI to help doctors choose the most appropriate therapeutic approach.
The 4Ps: predictive, preventive, personalised
express the most important concepts for the development of predictive medicine.
