Personalized Healthcare

A problem in healthcare is that in spite of the recent focus on precision medicine, much of the relevant data is not patient-specific, and thus, corroborating relevant information and discarding the rest remains the manual endeavor of clinicians. This is a rather complex problem, with several aspects to it such as laboratory tests, prescription drugs, diet, etc. We developed AI-driven systems that can distill patient-specific information from large amounts of natural language data as well as structured databases. This has led to automatic recommendation of the most relevant laboratory tests for a patient, depending on the precise circumstances [Banerjee et al. 2014], and personalized identification of adverse drug reactions and attribution of patient's symptoms to their drug regimen [Banerjee et al. 2015].
