The promise of AI to help reduce early deaths

Ideas to Innovation - Season Two

Episode description

A person born this year is expected to live about 73 years, according to the World Health Organization. But 73 doesn’t reveal the full picture. According to a WHO report published in May, advances in science, related technologies and other factors have helped increase life expectancy worldwide by six years between 2000 and 2019.  Good news, right? However, it’s also true that 80 percent of premature deaths could be avoided if patients and healthcare professionals had the right information at the right time to make better decisions. That’s where artificial intelligence comes in. Today, Patient Connect, a biopharma intelligence company that’s part of Clarivate, is integrating AI into clinical software at point of care for patients around the world, such as, for example, the two million people in the U.S. who suffer from heart failure. These new AI tools are enabling more than a million physicians to provide better care for those suffering from a wide variety of diseases by identifying the most at-risk patients or the patients with the most unmet needs.

To explain how such sophisticated solutions provide better and best care for patients, we welcome back Dr. Grace Lomax to the “Ideas to Innovation Season 2” podcast from Clarivate. Grace founded Patient Connect with her sister, Zoe Barker, in 2008, and the company was acquired by Clarivate in 2021. Patient Connect engagement solutions improve patient outcomes by delivering clinical messaging to the workflows of physicians and pharmacists at the point of patient contact. This messaging helps guide patients to better understand their treatment and disease and empower them to make informed healthcare decisions.
