AI Based Solution for Preventive Care

How Artificial Intelligence is Giving Birth to a New Era in Preventative Care

THE CHALLENGE.

Generally speaking, people who are looking to obtain opioids and/or other addictive drugs tend to behave in fairly predictable ways thanks to a few common characteristics that they all share. Recently, a medical client who wanted to put this theory to the test engaged Pegasus One to help with the development of a brand new artificial intelligence (AI) powered solution that could identify these people as soon as possible, giving medical professionals the best chance to treat them proactively before the situation had a chance to grow out of control.

THE CHALLENGE.

Generally speaking, people who are looking to obtain opioids and/or other addictive drugs tend to behave in fairly predictable ways thanks to a few common characteristics that they all share. Recently, a medical client who wanted to put this theory to the test engaged Pegasus One to help with the development of a brand new artificial intelligence (AI) powered solution that could identify these people as soon as possible, giving medical professionals the best chance to treat them proactively before the situation had a chance to grow out of control.

APPROACH.

After our initial discussions, the team at Pegasus One proposed an AI-based solution that could link text analytics performed on physicians’ notes from patient visits – including their impressions of a patient’s behavior, appearance and diagnoses – with data in our client’s confidential third-party electronic medical records (EMR) system.

The solution, which uses both text analytics and advanced machine learning, is capable of generating system alerts for doctors DURING patient visits when a pattern of at-risk behavior is identified. This puts caregivers in the best possible position to intercede with patients in real-time, thus taking corrective actions as soon as possible.

RESULTS.

Just a few of the positive results Pegasus One was able to achieve on behalf of the client included:

  • Better analysis: To date, more than 10,000 drug-seeking patients have been identified.
  • Incredible savings: This healthcare provider alone has enjoyed several million (>10 Million) in targeted organizational savings.
  • Real-time visibility: The solution captures behavior and symptoms in real-time as patients interact with their physician.

VALUE.

Pegasus One was honored for the opportunity to help one of the nation’s largest integrated healthcare services companies implement this intuitive, innovative, AI-based solution to identify drug-seeking behaviors in a way that alerts caregivers about patients at risk. We’re happy to be involved with something that not only helps to significantly improve health outcomes, but that lowers treatment costs for everyone as well.
