AI for Health Care & Life Sciences

Relieve pressure on health care systems, improve medical decision making and get innovative therapies to patients faster.

Business Challenge

The digitization of health care data and the expectation among increasingly engaged patients for personalized and virtual care are introducing unprecedented opportunities to disrupt the way health care and therapies are delivered. Health care systems are overwhelmed by the flood of new, rich data sources – such as social determinants, genetic and imaging data, data from medical devices and wearables, and social media data. Meanwhile, life sciences companies face increasing pressure from the market and regulatory agencies to incorporate real world data throughout the pharmaceutical life cycle, from clinical trials through the commercialization of drug products.

Health and life sciences organizations must adapt the way they use and share data to relieve pressure on health care systems, improve medical decision making and get innovative therapies to patients faster.

How AI Can Help

AI capabilities – such as machine learning, computer vision, natural language processing, and forecasting and optimization – can unleash the full potential of data to solve some of our greatest health challenges and dramatically change the way health care and therapies are delivered. This necessary evolution will enable health care and life sciences organizations to:

  • Improve health care outcomes. Empower physicians with more accurate diagnostics and targeted prevention capabilities.
  • Ensure drug safety. Enable pharmaceutical manufacturers to quickly determine the quality, efficacy and safety of new product candidates.
  • Get new therapies to market faster. Accelerate clinical trials using real-world data sources.
  • Control costs. Improve the operational performance of hospitals by optimizing staffing resources and taking action to reduce the number of hospital readmissions.
