Novant Health and MEDai Discuss the Value of Artificial Intelligence in Predictive Modeling at HIMSS

ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- MEDai, Inc., headquartered in Orlando, FL, a leading provider of advanced solutions for healthcare that utilize award-winning technology, announced earlier this week that Dr. Jim Lederer, Medical Director of Clinical Improvement of Novant Health in Winston- Salem, NC, will present Making it Smart(er): Applying Intelligence to Predictive Modeling at the 2005 Annual HIMSS conference in Dallas, TX. The presentation will discuss incorporating artificial intelligence techniques into predictive modeling to provide healthcare organizations with new and efficient methods to target interventions towards patients who will benefit most, thereby better utilizing limited care management resources.

"Novant Health, a long-standing client of MEDai, Inc., understands the importance of incorporating artificial intelligence into the analysis of healthcare data for the purpose of developing proactive disease management programs, improvement of patient safety, and better outcomes benchmarking," said Dr. Lederer.

MEDai's Pinpoint Quality(TM) provides a robust powerful reporting environment that supplies clinically relevant data that organizations can share with clinicians to improve care, patient satisfaction and operational efficiency. The advantage of MEDai's analytical engine is its use of the right combination of linear and non-linear models to correctly "fit" the characteristics of the client's population. Their methodology consistently yields the highest accuracy available as evidenced by their performance in The Association for Computing Machinery's Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (ACM KDD) competition. This is MEDai's fourth year competing in the ACM KDD competition and second consecutive year placing first. The company has always placed in the top four.

"With rising healthcare costs, organizations of all types need to be better able to assess risk and manage care," said Steve Epstein, President and CEO of MEDai, Inc. "Utilizing analytical models that incorporate various statistical methodologies provides great benefit to organizations trying to manage their members who have chronic diseases. Not only are they able to more accurately identify high-risk members, but the models themselves adapt to the information sources available to them, learning from new data," he added.
