The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality has awarded a Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute team $15,000 for an app called MortalityMinder, which identifies social conditions contributing to declining life expectancy at a community level.
Four experts in diverse aspects of artificial intelligence have joined Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute as part of the Artificial Intelligence Research Collaboration (AIRC), a recently formed joint initiative of Rensselaer and IBM Research.
An app created by Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute students that identifies social conditions contributing to declining life expectancy at a community level is a Phase 1 winner in a data visualization competition sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
In partnership with local health insurer, CDPHP, researchers from the Institute for Data Exploration and Applications (IDEA) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute are using artificial intelligence to improve patient health by developing a better understanding of high needs patients and identifying aspects of care that lead to better outcomes.
To help address the growing need for a larger workforce of health data analysts and technologists, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and the United Health Foundation are expanding access to health informatics educational opportunities and applied health data science research experiences through the Rensselaer Institute for Data Exploration and Application (IDEA).
