Background Out of the pressure of Digital Transformation, the major industrial domains are using advanced and efficient digital technologies to implement processes that are applied on a daily basis. Unfortunately, this still does not happen in the same way in the medical domain. For this reason, doctors usually do not have the time or knowledge to evaluate all alternative treatment options for each patient accurately and individually. However, physicians can reduce their workload by using… 

Multitask Healthcare Management Recommendation System Leveraging Knowledge Graph

In this paper, a novel multitask healthcare management recommendation system leveraging the knowledge graph is proposed, which is based on deep neural network and 5G network, and it can be applied in

Bayesian Logical Neural Networks for Human-Centered Applications in Medicine

This work reports a novel modeling methodology combining explainable models, defined on Logic Neural Networks (LONNs), and Bayesian Networks (BN) that deliver ambiguous outcomes, for instance, medical procedures (Therapy Keys (TK)), depending on the uncertainty of observed data.

Explainable AI for clinical and remote health applications: a survey on tabular and time series data

Clinical validation, consistency assessment, objective and standardised quality evaluation, and human-centered quality assessment are identified as key features to ensure effective explanations for the end users in the healthcare domain.

An Alert Notification Subsystem for AI Based Clinical Decision Support: A Protoype in NICU

An alert notification subsystem is designed and developed that combines vast analytics to detect abnormal patient's physiology, determine who is on service at the bedside and then generate appropriate notification to that care provider during their schedule time in a hospital critical care unit.

Data-driven support to decision-making in molecular tumour boards for lymphoma: A design science approach

This work provides a consolidated proof-of-concept system that could support the end-to-end clinical decision-making process and positively and immediately impact patients and integrates artificial intelligence via continual learning and multimodal data fusion.

A Method to improve the Reliability of Saliency Scores applied to Graph Neural Network Models in Patient Populations

This work presents a method to sample the saliency scores of GNNs models computed with three different methods, gradient, integrated gradients, and DeepLIFT, and informs the customers if they are reliable if and only if all of them are convergent.

Applications of natural language processing in ophthalmology: present and future

Ophthalmologists are introduced to NLP by reviewing current applications of NLP in ophthalmology and exploring potential applications, and the majority of these publications focused on extracting specific text such as visual acuity from free-text notes for the purposes of quantitative analysis.

Diabetes medication recommendation system using patient similarity analytics

An evidence-based diabetes medication recommendation system (DMRS) underpinned by patient similarity analytics is presented, which can provide an individualized recommendation that resembles the actual prescribed medication and dosage for patients with T2DM.



Health Recommender Systems: Concepts, Requirements, Technical Basics and Challenges

This article gives an introduction to health recommender systems and explains why they are a useful enhancement to PHR solutions and outlines an evaluation approach for such a system, supported by medical experts.

Recommender systems in the healthcare domain: state-of-the-art and research issues

This article provides a systematic overview of existing research on healthcare recommender systems, providing insights into recommendation scenarios and recommendation approaches, and develops working examples to give a deep understanding of recommendation algorithms.

Can Recommender Systems Reduce Healthcare Costs? The Role of Time Pressure and Cost Transparency in Prescription Choice

There was a general tendency among practitioners to reduce healthcare costs by prescribing lower cost medications when cost information is provided by a recommender system, and the time pressure faced daily by prescribers appears to impact the use of recommendations by nurse practitioners and physician assistants more than it does physicians.

Recommender Systems Handbook

This handbook illustrates how recommender systems can support the user in decision-making, planning and purchasing processes, and works for well known corporations such as Amazon, Google, Microsoft and AT&T.

Scalable and accurate deep learning with electronic health records

A representation of patients’ entire raw EHR records based on the Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) format is proposed, and it is demonstrated that deep learning methods using this representation are capable of accurately predicting multiple medical events from multiple centers without site-specific data harmonization.

Deep EHR: A Survey of Recent Advances in Deep Learning Techniques for Electronic Health Record (EHR) Analysis

This review surveys the current research on applying deep learning to clinical tasks based on EHR data, where a variety of deep learning techniques and frameworks are being applied to several types of clinical applications including information extraction, representation learning, outcome prediction, phenotyping, and deidentification.

Designing a mHealth clinical decision support system for Parkinson’s disease: a theoretically grounded user needs approach

A user needs approach to develop a prototype of a mHealth CDSS for Parkinson’s disease (PD), which is theoretically grounded in the psychological literature about expert decision making and judgement under uncertainty and highlighted the central importance of the patient-clinician relationship in clinical decision making.
