From the Desk of the AI Team
AI projects have created tangible results for a wide range of industries. Despite the innovation, it is important to remember that AI is not a magic wand that will solve every problem in every industry with a single wave.
Before embarking on any new endeavor or enterprise, certain questions come to mind: How are we going to handle this? Does our team have the expertise, bandwidth, resources, and time to handle this undertaking on our own? When it comes to finding a scalable way to structure your unstructured healthcare data, the answers to these questions will impact when/whether you deliver a top-tier product for your clients.
Human abstraction has long been considered the gold standard for extracting high quality information from EHR data. With the rise of NLP and machine learning, how should we evaluate these new technologies and are human abstractors still the correct comparison?

Mendel.ai is improving identification of suitable cancer patients and matching to clinical trials. Mendel.ai, a US-based company founded in 2016, uses AI tools to analyse clinical data, including medical history and genetic analysis, from cancer patients. Its goal is to facilitate clinical trials in oncology research by organising and analysing RWD, and matching patients to the right clinical trials.45 They take medical data from many structured and unstructured data sets and turn these into data digitised patient journeys aligned to specific treatments. Having collected data on over 1 million journeys, its algorithm can segment patient populations by their demographic, such as how African American women with breast cancer respond to a particular drug. In essence creating in silico or patient-less trials. The AI algorithm built on these data helps trial recruitment by finding eligible patients.
