“Correctly identifying a patient with a rare disease can be like looking for a needle in a haystack”, according to Dr. Joseph Zabinski, Director, AI & Precision Medicine at OM1. But what if we could apply a magnet to the haystack, taking advantage of ‘hidden’ properties that – even without being visible – can be used to pull the true needles to the surface?
Artificial Intelligence (AI) can act as a “magnet” when applied to the haystack, “being used to pull the true needles to the surface” by identifying subtle patterns, signals, and themes at scale. AI can label at-risk patients beyond the capabilities of other methods.
