In his grief over losing his wife, Amir Bahmani realized how much data science could impact medicine and potentially save lives.
Medicine has been the way of connecting both of Brian Smith's passions. “With medicine I could have the intellectual curiosity, but also the chance to talk with people and enjoy the human experience.”
Many social determinants of health can influence a patient’s risk, but Palaniappan and fellow researchers have noticed, from working with data from patients around the nation, that race is not among the most accurate or equitable.
As the health care industry grapples with the best way to use artificial intelligence technologies to improve care, many clinicians may wonder what happens if patients are harmed, and who should be held liable.
With such conveniences as digital devices at our fingertips comes a messy health conundrum, say Stanford Medicine researchers.
'People in the medical humanities space already understand how art can be helpful in patient recovery, but a lot of medicine is really data- and finance-driven,' said Brian R. Smith.
