For medical professionals, the programme enables

  • Enhance your commitment to patient care with precision medicine, personalized treatment and informed care to significantly reduce the death rate and predictable medical outcomes.
  • To collect, structure and process a high volume of data and further make sense of it in gaining a deeper understanding of the human body.
  • Improve diagnostic accuracy and efficiency.

Biotech professionals,

  • Reduce human suffering and disease by sifting through large, complex data sets and understanding the interconnectivity of genetic codes and diseases.
  • Can help generate a unique health and wellness profile based on both genomic and lifestyle data. For instance, if this is tied to a health and wellness app - the user can be alerted on foods or activities that increase their risk of a particular disease, thereby taking precautions at an early stage of detection.
  • Can help create new combinations of pharmaceutical compounds, perform predictive diagnosis, or even create genetically modified seeds.

Pharma professionals

  • Cure diseases by accelerating drug discovery and development process.
  • Optimize and improve the efficacy of clinical trials.
  • Helps spot trends and patterns in data (diseases, how patients respond to treatment of the same) and allows in formulating more targeted medications for patients that share common features

Other benefits

  • Build Electronic Health Records (EHRs) where patients have their own digital records that include demographics, medical history, allergies, laboratory test results etc.
  • Enhance patient engagement: Build smart devices that record every step patient takes, their heart rates, sleeping habits, etc., on a permanent basis. All this vital information can be coupled with other trackable data to identify potential health risks lurking.

Digital Health and Imaging solutions are the biggest beneficiaries of Data Science, AI and Machine Learning. From saving lives to cutting down costs, data science has a huge role to play in the healthcare system. Take a look at some of the important use cases in healthcare.

  1. Improve Diagnostic Accuracy:
    According to the recent research by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, about 5 percent of adult patients are misdiagnosed each year in the US continent that causes approximately 10 percent of patient deaths. Targeting this problem, a deep learning startup, Enlitic, built a deep learning algorithm that reads imaging data (such as x-rays, CT scans, etc.), and analyzes it, checks the given results against an extensive database of clinical reports and laboratory studies. This way the company could deliver up to 70 percent more accurate results, 50,000 times faster.
  2. Advanced pharmaceutical research to find cure for cancer
    Being one of the most common and most deadly diseases, cancer has been a regular subject of scientific research. A Boston healthcare startup, BERG Health, reshapes the cancer medication market through extensive use of data science. Using powerful machine learning algorithms the company extracts and analyzes biological samples from over 1,000 patients in one go. The company has developed BPM 31510, the drug, that detects and triggers the natural death of cells damaged by the disease. Thus, the cancer cells can be removed from the human body naturally, without extensive medication and further damage to the patient’s health. While the drug is still being carefully tested, it gives us a clear understanding of the transformation potential that Data Science and deep technologies can provide to the pharmaceutical industry.
  3. Taking the risk out of prescription medicine
    MedAware, aims to eliminate prescription errors. The company claims that it has tools to help hospitals save up to $5.6 million, not to mention the reduced risk of lethal outcomes. A self-learning software system, provided by MedAware, checks all prescriptions against similar cases in the database and informs the doctor when the prescription contains any deviations from the typical treatment plan.
  4. Disease Prevention
    Omada Health is a digital therapeutics company that uses smart devices to create personalized behavior plans and online coaching to help prevent chronic health conditions, such as diabetes, hypertension, and high cholesterol.

And there are many such organizations who have opened up new opportunities using Data Science and Deep Learning for better healthcare.

Healthcare organizations are looking for professionals with Data Science and Deep Learning capabilities. With Data science and AI capabilities one could look into new career opportunities such as:

  1. Healthcare Data Analyst
  2. Advanced Analytics and Insights Strategist
  3. Research Scientist, Health AI
  4. Health Program Analyst
  5. Associate Scientist, Drug Product Development
  6. Senior Medical Imaging Software Engineer

Apart from new opportunities, this programme will help you take data driven decisions in current healthcare roles.
