In this episode of Creating a New Healthcare, Dr. Zeev Neuwirth interviews Len D’Avolio, CEO and founder of Cyft – an organization that uses data and Artificial Intelligence (AI) I to make value-based care wildly successful.
I asked LinkedIn friends to submit their questions related to AI in healthcare in preparation for an upcoming keynote at this year’s HIMSS in Vegas. I promised to try to answer the questions they submitted.
Leonard D’Avolio is a medical school professor, an entrepreneur—and a pragmatic optimist. Learn why he has spent the last 13 years trying to make data the key to improving healthcare and why he thinks we are now at the tipping point.
The healthcare AI space is frothy. Billions in venture capital are flowing, nearly every writer on the healthcare beat has at least an article or two on the topic, and there isn’t a medical conference that doesn’t at least have a panel if not a dedicated day to discuss. The promise and potential is very real.
As healthcare organizations move toward taking on greater financial risk for keeping people healthy, it is critical for organizations to match people to the interventions they’re most likely to benefit from.
Leonard, D’Avolio, Harvard professor and CEO of Cyft, explains how to work with “scruffy” data to improve healthcare.
These days, every care management / value-based care organization has a risk score to help target interventions. Unfortunately, these risk scores often frustrate clinicians by directing them to people who cannot benefit from an intervention – either the person is not actually headed for trouble, or the clinician already knew about that person.
Healthcare is notorious for its lack of consistent and widely adopted data formats. The one consistent exception is the billing information exchanged between payors and providers.
Data scientists like Sid Henriksen, a Ph.D. student nearing graduation, often ask me how they can succeed in healthcare. With Sid's permission, here are a few questions and insights for aspiring healthcare data scientists.
