Improving Healthcare Quality

When I hear the words "artificial intelligence," I think of Skynet from the Terminator movies. I know what you're thinking, and, yes, I'm well aware that it's just science fiction and not real life.

Why do I have artificial intelligence on my mind?

As many of my reader already know, recently I had a family emergency involving my grandmother. Well, actually there were two emergencies to more precise! So my family has had to deal with hospitals and now a nursing home, which has lead me to learn more about healthcare.

Believe it or not hospitals now have the ability to use artificial intelligence, such as QuartzClinical, which is a cloud-based healthcare data analytics platform. This type of artificial intelligence uses big data to help monitor hospital performances. Overtime, machine learning can help hospitals lower costs while providing excellent quality healthcare to their patients.

QuartzClinical's main objective to help create the greatest hospital system by providing dynamic dashboards, error-free predictive analytics, and comprehensive benchmarking. The system uses lean six sigma tools, as well as project management tools, to help hospitals improve their overall performances. Basically, it can predict within 80% accuracy if a patient is most likely to be readmitted to the hospital in the near future.

If you live in a small town like me, you don't have to worry as Quartz Clinical is very affordable and doesn't charge per-user, so smaller hospitals even have an opportunity to use artificial intelligence. It seems to be a great way for hospitals to provided better healthcare at a much lower cost.
