"AI for Care Planning Support"

Friday, April 9, 2021
12 pm

Effective care planning requires care managers to understand patient health status and needs to deliver appropriate patient support. The proliferation of health-care data including massive volumes of clinical free text documents, creates a significant challenge for care managers, but a major opportunity for advanced clinical analytics. Novel deep learning and natural language processing (NLP)-based Artificial Intelligence (AI) solutions can help optimize care planning, reducing inefficiency and increasing focus on the most salient information, leading to improved patient outcomes. This talk will provide an overview of deep learning and its applications to NLP-based clinical decision support solutions in general, followed by various deep learning-based clinical natural language processing use cases developed as part of our advanced care planning initiatives.

Dr. Sadid Hasan is a Senior Director of AI at CVS Health leading the team responsible for AI-enabled clinical care plan initiatives in Aetna. Prior to CVS Health, he was the Technical Lead of the AI Group at Philips Research, where his work focused on solving various clinical Natural Language Processing (NLP) problems with Deep Learning. Previously, Sadid was a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, University of Lethbridge, Canada, from where he obtained his PhD in Computer Science with a focus in NLP and Machine Learning. Sadid has over 40 patents pending and 75+ peer-reviewed publications in the top NLP/Machine Learning venues, where he also regularly serves in the program committee, including AAAI, ACL, NeurIPS, ICML, IJCAI, ICLR, EMNLP, COLING, NAACL, AMIA, JAIR, etc.
