Our Team at Work: The Annual Congress on Wellness and Healthcare Informatics

Pierantonio Russo, MD, FCPP, FAAP (CT/Cardiology; @russopar), our Senior Vice President of Medical Affairs, delivered the keynote presentation at the Annual Congress on Wellness and Healthcare Informatics, a global platform for health professionals, scientists, researchers, and others to discuss the latest technological and research advances in health care.

The keynote, “The Role of Artificial Intelligence in the Management of Social Determinants of Health,” addressed nonclinical factors that play a significant role in population health. Social determinants of health (SDOH) are the conditions in which people are born, grow, work, live, and age, and the wider set of forces and systems shaping the conditions of daily life, including economic policies and systems, development agendas, social norms, social policies, and political systems. Better than usual epidemiological methods, AI is better suited to identify specific social determinants of health, social risk factors, and social needs; and to provide tools to address them. AI, including activity-based intelligence, is revolutionizing medicine – providing data-driven decision support to clinicians, changing the way we conduct clinical trials virtually, and building actionable analyses to determine individualized treatment options for patients.

How does HVH utilize AI and machine learning to address SDOH? Our proprietary methodology facilitates health enterprise zone initiatives to improve access to health care and health outcomes in underserved communities by designing detailed heat maps that recognize unmet social needs and neighborhood stress concentrations. Our predictive analytic models evaluate thousands of the disparate factors that influence daily lives to optimize and guide the design of measurable interventions that are effective in achieving the desired objectives of improving social, personal and health conditions.

“Our unique methodology, based on activity-based intelligence (ABI) that integrates a multitude of data sources in real time, optimizes and guides the design of measurable interventions to enhance access to health care and health outcomes in under-served communities, paving the way for improved social, personal, and health conditions,” said Dr. Russo.

The conference, themed “A Step Towards Better Healthcare System,” took place on October 7-8, 2019, and invites thought leaders from around the world to discuss, explore, and exchange insights on rising health issues and the latest in research and health informatics.
