Researchers say AI prescribes better treatment than doctors

Researchers say AI prescribes better treatment than doctors | Plant Based Nutrition | Scoop.it

Two Indiana University researchers have developed a computer model they say can identify significantly better and less-expensive treatments than can doctors acting alone. It’s just the latest evidence that big data will have a profound impact on our health care system.

 

How much better? They claim a better than 50 percent reduction in costs and more than 40 percent better patient outcomes.

 

The idea behind the research, carried out by Casey Bennett and Kris Hauser, is simple and gets to the core of why so many people care so much about data in the first place: If doctors can consider what’s actually happening and likely to happen instead of relying on intuition, they should be able to make better decisions.

 

In order to prove out their hypothesis, the researchers worked with “clinical data, demographics and other information on over 6,700 patients who had major clinical depression diagnoses, of which about 65 to 70 percent had co-occurring chronic physical disorders like diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease.” They built a model using Markov decision processes — which predict the probabilities of future events based on those immediately preceding them — and dynamic decision networks — which extend the Markov processes by considering the specific features of those events in order to determine the probabilities. Essentially, their model considers the specifics of a patient’s current state and then determines the best action to effect the best possible outcome.

 

Specifically, Bennett and Hauser found via a simulation of 500 random cases that their model decreased the cost per unit of outcome change to $189 from the $497 without it, an improvement of 58.5 percent. They found their original model improved patient outcomes by nearly 35 percent, but that tweaking a few parameters could bring that number to 41.9 percent.

 

IBM has been banging this drum loudly, most recently with two new commercial versions of its Watson system — one of which is designed to determine the best-possible course of treatment for lung cancer patient by analyzing their situations against a library of millions of pages of clinical evidence and medical research.

 

So, although we won’t hear “Paging Dr. Watson” at the hospital anytime soon, there’s an increasingly high chance our doctors will retire to their offices with our charts and ask a computer system of some sort what might be wrong with us and how they might best fix it.

Skip Stein's insight:

This is compounded by the fact that most of the illnesses in the study are direct results from poor/lousy nutrition.  Since doctors get little or no training in nutrition during all those years in medical school, the obvious solutions, the most natural and inexpensive ones are not even mentioned.  Plant based nutrition can help reduce the impact of many illnesses and in many cases totally reverse/cure the 'disease'.  Things like heart disease, diabetes 2, many cancers and a host of other ailments from depression, hypertension, high cholesterol and a plethora of others.

"We've Heard It All Before" (Extended Cut); Obama Repeats the same broken promises!

Here is a great comparison, side by side of the same Obama Rhetoric heard before.  Still he promises change but needs more time?  Bull, he has had 4 years and broken his promises about his 'Home & Change' program.  He has broken his promises and tried to break OUR COUNTRY.  NO MORE.

Skip Stein's insight:

Why not just plant more trees and flowers?  Great way to combat CO2 'pollution'.  You can always off yourself as HUMANS are massive producers of CO2 emissions as are ALL living animal species. 

 

We are clear cutting forests to make room graze more beef cattle and other animals for slaughter.  Ever think of changing your diet to reduce the demand for 'meat fish dairy and eggs'?  THAT is a very effective treatment for the Global panic.

 

GMO?  They cause farmers to use MORE pesticides that pollute the waters of the Planet so may cry to 'protect'.  This kills more and more insects that also consume CO2.

 

All this is just a diversion and attempt to CONTROL the population, YOU!

Skip Stein's insight:
"Modern medicine exists to enrich big business, not to make people healthy"The 'Medical Practice' has long been more business than treating patients.  The totally corrupt FDA/USDA has been in league/owned by big Pharmaceuticals and major corporate medical enterprises for decades.  The corruption in the government has totally destroyed the Free Markets which would allow competitive pricing as described in this article. When you consider that dietary/lifestyle change can and does do as much good or better than many of these expensive drugs (and actually WORKS) why do people insist in not researching alternatives.  I sure did and it saved my LIFE, not to mention hundred of thousands of dollars in cancer 'treatments' that would not have done anything but bought a new car for the oncologist and his drug suppliers. Sure some drugs are great for treating some ailments, but many 'ailments' today are fabricated and sold on TV to convince people they are sick when it is really a lifestyle that is causing the ailment.
