CASE STUDY 1: Putting Patients at the Center and Reducing Risk

March 5, 2018
10:40am - 11:00am
Lafleur

As Atlanta’s preeminent safety net hospital, Grady Memorial Hospital is an essential resource for many who otherwise would have little to no access to medical services. In an attempt to lower rates of patient illness, complications, and deliver personalized care, a little over a year ago the hospital incorporated artificial intelligence with the system’s mobile integrated health program.

The results have been impressive: Grady has seen a 10% decrease in readmissions for the targeted population and saved almost $700,000 in direct costs - a greater than 500% return on the program. Additionally, included within the intelligence of the machine are the socioeconomic factors such as literacy, income, access to transportation, and proximity to a food desert that drive more than half a patient’s risk.

In this session, among other things, attendees will learn how Grady has integrated AI to prioritize patient visits and to identify:

  • The clinical, behavioral, and socioeconomic factors contributing to the risk of a re-hospitalization.
  • The actions that will best reduce risk while ensuring patient engagement. 
  • Opportunities for AI application across hospital clinical operations.
