Improving the diagnosis and treatment

Uncertainty is compounded by the information overload that characterizes modern medicine

Today's experienced clinician needs close to 2 million pieces of information to practice medicine. Doctors subscribe to an average of seven journals, representing over 2,500 new articles each year. How can a single individual process such vast amounts of information and effectively apply it in practice?!

Cognitive shortcuts methods, or heuristics, have been commonly referred to as highly efficient in helping solve complex problems, of the sort encountered daily in clinical medicine. It is known however that heuristics is often applied with errors, affecting clinical judgments and leading to possibly incorrect conclusions. Eventually, because short-term memory of a typical person has limited capacity, cognitive shortcuts are discarded as rapidly as they are formed.

Intellix's involvement in the healthcare industry contains recent significant achievements/milestones that are going to be shared publicly in the near future — please stay put.

Big Data


Using Big Data to improve patient outcomes

Despite spending $800m on technology in 2012, healthcare productivity is flat and preventable patient harm remains the third leading cause of death in the US.

One reason for this is that healthcare is grossly under-engineered; medical devices don't talk to each other, treatments are not specified and ensured, and outcomes are largely assumed than measured.

Other industries rely much less on heroism by individuals and more about designing safe systems und using technology to support work.

Modern healthcare technologies generates massive amounts of data related to the delivery of healthcare as well as to the reimbursement as well as the payment of healthcare providers. The challenge is turning this data into knowledge that improves clinical care as well as providing cost efficiency in the healthcare delivery.

Today’s powerful computers and the use of neural networks makes it possible to aggregate individual medical data sets into big data algorithms this provides the most robust evidence that helps patients, physicians, and other healthcare stakeholders identify value and opportunities. Therefore mining of large data sets “BigData” for knowledge creation in combination with decision intelligence for securing compliance have great potential to change and improve the healthcare landscape as we know it.

With the use of "BigData", we would for example get better tracking of efficacy and side effect of new drugs, and it would provide population based evidence with regard to which factors and what statistical significance is there for the development of a number of diseases/disorders. 

This knowledge can thus be used to build clinical decision support tools and checklists which will be used by healthcare professionals to prepare diagnosis and treatments of personal doctor-seeking/hospitalized patients more quickly and efficiently. Similar information will also be used to identify people (bulk analysis) who are at risk for developing various diseases, which will help healthcare personnel prevent diseases, treat diseases, and establish lifestyle changes to catch diseases at early stages or before they develop. Early identification and management is of great importance for successful management of life-threatening diseases. All this will result in reduced societal financial burdens while enhancing patient health and life-span.
