Health & Life Sciences

The promise of AI in healthcare and life sciences is profound. It can help physicians and researchers prevent disease, speed recovery and save lives, by unlocking complex and varied data sets to develop new insights. AI can speed genomics processing and make medical image analysis faster and more accurate for personalized treatment. It can also be used to detect and correct massive waste, fraud and abuse in healthcare spending.

Siemens Healthineers Explores AI at the Edge

Siemens Healthineers, the global healthcare market leader in diagnostic imaging, showed that with 2nd-generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, Intel® Deep Learning Boost and optimizations with the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit, they were able to speed up the company’s cardiac MRI segmentation deep learning models by factors in the range of up to 3x – 10x for better real-time inferencing. Intel Deep Learning Boost has the potential to help Siemens Healthineers introduce new real-time applications into the market without the added complexity and burden of having dedicated accelerators in their systems.

Philips

Intel teamed up with Philips to show that servers powered by Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors could be used to efficiently perform deep learning inference on patients’ X-rays and computed tomography (CT) scans, without the need for accelerators.

Broad Institute

Intel employee Bryce Olson was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer. When the standard of care didn’t work, Bryce turned to genomic sequencing which allowed his doctors to identify specific genetic drivers of his disease and identify specific treatments and clinical trials that were a fit for his specific cancer. This precision medicine approach helped send his cancer into remission for several years.

Accuhealth

AccuHealth captures patient data using smart biometric sensors and a home-based monitoring device, and then analyzes the data in their Intel® Xeon® processor-based datacenter, tracking patients’ conditions, predicting beneficial interventions, and driving new discoveries. With this data-focused approach, AccuHealth is shifting care from a reactionary, facility-based model to a proactive, home-based model. When treating patients with highly complex disease states, AccuHealth has reduced ER visits by an average of 42% and costs to insurers by an average of 50% per patient.
