H2O.ai Showcases Leadership in Healthcare and Life Sciences with Customer Successes and Scope of AI Applications at HIMSS 2022

Company supporting the health ecosystem across population health, precision medicine, public health and smart supply chain

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 11, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–H2O.ai, the leader in cloud AI, announced that it has expanded its healthcare capabilities, now offering 40 AI applications in the areas of population health, precision medicine, public health and smart supply chain, supporting customers across the healthcare ecosystem including Bon Secours Mercy Health (BSMH) and Kaiser Permanente.

The company will showcase its technologies at the healthcare industry’s flagship technology conference, HIMSS, in booth #8141, March 15-17, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando.

Healthcare and life science organizations have been stretched over the past few years and are actively seeking new technologies to streamline operations and improve patient outcomes in both the private and public sectors. AI will empower physicians, hospital administrators, researchers, and pharmaceutical companies with models and applications that produce more affordable, accessible, and efficient healthcare. H2O.ai is at the forefront of this effort, helping organizations transform rapidly to improve healthcare equity, access and care.

For example, the Center for Digital Health Innovation (CDHI) at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) is collaborating with H2O.ai to develop and train AI algorithms that automate the treatment of 1.4 million faxed patient referrals and other documents that the UCSF Health System receives each year. Algorithms identify, classify and prioritize document types. For referrals, AI extracts key patient data, history, and relevant health information that will aid staff and eliminate manual data entry and validation tasks.

“AI in healthcare has the potential to dramatically improve business processes that can prevent patients from getting care quickly, in the right place, and from the right provider,” said Alon Konchitsky, associate director for the data science and machine learning at CDHI. “Our work with H2O.ai for health document management is just one aspect of transforming the way patients access and receive care.”

H2O.ai has developed 40 AI applications supporting various components of the healthcare ecosystem, including:

Population health

H2O.ai’s Covid-19 Hospital Occupancy Simulator allows hospital administrators to track, forecast, and manage Covid-19 hospital admissions by US county. The company also has a contextual predictor that allows for the quick identification of specific addresses in the United States that would be best suited for temporary vaccination clinics, mobile testing centers, public education booths, and more. H2O.ai’s customers – leading providers, payers, and Responsible Care Organizations (ACOs) – develop and deploy AI models and applications around patient absences, 30-day readmission predictors, risk stratification and NLP omnichannel patient engagement.

Precision medicine

H2O.ai has developed a Gene Mutation App, a machine learning-based patient risk assessment app that uses the Snowflake Data Cloud and H2O AI Cloud to bring intelligent clinical decision support directly to clinicians . In another use case, H2O.ai’s gene expression tumor classification app uses gene expression information from patient biopsies to assess malignancy risk and understand the frequency of risk in patients. previous.

“H2O AI Cloud, integrated with the Snowflake Data Cloud, enables healthcare organizations to rapidly develop precision medicine solutions,” said Todd Crosslin, global head of healthcare and life sciences at Snowflake. “The Gene Mutation app is just the beginning of our partnership in healthcare and our ability to deliver better care and better patient outcomes.”

Public health

The company’s Covid-19 prediction app enables hospital staff, policymakers and others to predict the next wave of infection as well as potential case and death rates. H2O.ai also provides a vaccine sentiment tool that leverages natural language processing (NLP) to understand sentiment around Covid-19 vaccines, and the company is currently working with leaders to address associated risks and care. at PASC (AKA Long COVID).

Smart supply chain

To provide smart supply chain support, H2O.ai’s route optimization app helps healthcare product manufacturers best optimize transportation routes to ensure products arrive on time. and in accordance with standards. H2O.ai has also developed an order and inventory management application to help healthcare product manufacturers make inefficient warehouse and inventory management decisions.

Avoid AI “pilotite”

Many healthcare and life science organizations are struggling to implement AI projects that improve patient outcomes, reduce costs and more. Thanks to its expertise and the H2O AI Cloud platform, H2O.ai is able to take companies out of the pilot cycle and successfully bring them to AI maturity to deliver impactful results. In fact, H2O.ai has seen an increase in the number of healthcare customers moving from pilot phase to full-fledged production AI programs.

“Artificial intelligence and deep learning are not only driving the latest innovations in medicine, but also enabling healthcare organizations to connect fragmented data in a format that can be used to improve efficiency. operational and deliver more user-centric patient experiences,” said Sri Ambati, CEO and co-founder of H2O.ai. “From its use in drug discovery and predicting the next variant of COVID-19 to streamlining supply chain operations and reducing healthcare worker churn, AI will have a significant impact on democratizing healthcare and improving patient outcomes.”
