Analyte to Algorithm to Action to Impact
The maturation of machine learning techniques, evolution of massive parallel computer platforms, and ubiquity of data have combined to bring about the Golden Age of Machine Learning. Since the widespread adoption of EMRs, healthcare now also has an abundance of granular clinical data. Applying machine learning to do clinical prediction has advanced significantly in the past few years. Dr. Orr will review the development and validation of several powerful machine learning models to predict high burden disease at earlier, more treatable stages. These models are beginning to play a critical role in care transformation efforts, especially as they relate to risk adjustment, population health, and alternative payment models. We will further review the challenge of getting these predictors into clinical and laboratory workflow, how ML results are messaged to both patients and clinicians, and how clinical outcomes related to these predictors are measured. We will close with a look ahead to how ML models and approaches will improve care delivery for laboratorians and other clinicians, and how ML empowers the transition to value based care.

Deriving Value from Lab Data Using AI
With continued pressure on labs due to fee-for-service margins and the move to value based care, many labs are seeking new ways to derive value from their clinical data. In this session, Prognos will share its experience on where the value of lab data lies and how it can be enhanced using artificial intelligence (AI). The session will cover implications for labs and set the stage to realize additional value from laboratory data.
Attendees will learn:
- The value of lab data
- Examples where lab data is of value
- How AI and machine learning can further unlock value
- Suggestions for getting started
