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 other drugs usually behave in fairly predictable ways thanks to a few common characteristics that they all share. Recently, a health care provider 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 other drugs usually behave in fairly predictable ways thanks to a few common characteristics that they all share. Recently, a health care provider 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 pitched an AI-powered approach linking text analysis carried out on the doctor’s notes with our client’s medical data within their EMR system. Some of the data points include patient diagnoses, appearance and behavior

Our approach combines machine learning and text based analytics, which gives real-time feedback to the doctors about patients depicting at-risk behavioural patterns enabling them to take pro-active actions.

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 our client, an integrated healthcare services company, implement this solution to proactively enable better care for high risk patients. We’re happy to be involved with something that not only helps to significantly improve healthcare delivery, but that lowers treatment costs for everyone as well.
