PHILADELPHIA – Jefferson advances as a finalist in the nationwide challenge to improve health outcomes through artificial intelligence, sponsored by the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Each of the seven CMS finalists receives a $60,000 prize and the opportunity to win the grand prize of $1 million or $230,000 for the runner-up. A multidisciplinary team of data scientists, data engineers, and physicians combined their collective experience to create the submission for the CMS Artificial Intelligence Health Outcomes Challenge. The winner will show how AI and machine learning can more strongly predict unplanned admissions and adverse events at hospitals and skilled nursing facilities. These insights can help healthcare providers to identify risk, intervene early, and ultimately improve patient outcomes.
