Artificial Intelligence Expert Discusses How to Address Baumol’s Cost Disease in HealthcareAKASA, the only Unified Automation™ company for revenue cycle management in healthcare, announced that its AI Technology Lead, Byung-Hak Kim, Ph.D., is leading a discussion today at 3:10 pm ET on how to address Baumol’s cost disease in healthcare with machine learning.Baumol’s cost disease is the rise of salaries in jobs that have experienced no or low increase of labor productivity, in response to rising wages in other jobs that have experienced higher labor productivity growth.The Baumol effect has been a significant driver of costs in healthcare for decades with no clear path to reversing these effects in our healthcare system.In his talk, Kim presents the recent progress of harnessing state-of-the-art deep learning techniques in automating how medical bills are processed and paid in healthcare revenue cycle management.Making the billing process more efficient allows health systems to redirect investment into patient care while minimizing wasteful spending.These advancements can help health systems and hospitals increase productivity, maximize the value delivered by their administrative staff, and minimize the impact of Baumol’s cost disease on their organization so they can invest more in patient care.Byung-Hak Kim, PhD, has focused on machine learning research and development in real-world applications in the challenging areas of human health, education, and speech.Kim holds a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Electrical Engineering from Korea University and a doctorate degree in Electrical & Computer Engineering at Texas A University.

Ping An Insurance (Group) Company of China, Ltd. (hereafter “Ping An” or the “Group”, HKEX: 2318; SSE: 601318) is pleased to announce that Ping An AskBob Doctor’s smart imaging model for diagnosing pelvic and hip injuries is the first of its kind to accurately detect all kinds of trauma-related findings simultaneously in X-ray images.In a research paper published in the international journal Nature Communications, the model is shown to overcome the limitation of other artificial intelligence (AI) systems, which can only detect individual fractures.The model, a deep learning algorithm, can help physicians make faster, more accurate diagnoses and save lives.Hip fractures mainly occur in elderly people and patients with major trauma.Reducing the rate of missed diagnoses, improving the comprehensiveness of the detection, and providing accurate diagnoses is critical.Ping An Health Technology Research Institute, Ping An Smart City, Ping An Good Doctor and the Department of Trauma and Emergency Surgery of Chang Gung Memorial Hospital in Taiwan jointly released the research paper “A scalable physician-level deep learning algorithm detects universal trauma on pelvic radiographs”.The research team gathered the pelvic X-ray data of 1,888 emergency room patients to evaluate the model’s performance in obtain the fracture results and locations.Compared with general clinical diagnoses, the model substantially improves detection accuracy, speeds up the treatment progress, improves the treatment effectiveness on high-risk patients, and reduces the economic cost to patients through earlier detection and treatment.This is the first AI algorithm to detect all fracture types captured on the X-ray images, including, but not limited to, hip fractures, pelvic fractures, femoral fractures, hip dislocation and artificial joint peripheral fractures.As of March, 2021, the AskBob Doctor AI pelvic trauma detection technology has been used in the real-life clinical environment in Chang Gung Memorial Hospital in Taiwan for nearly eight months.

The new robotic bartender Cecilia.ai will replace regular alcoholic drinks with vaccine-infused cocktails, serving adults 21 and over, to help speed up the global efforts.Cheers to life!2020 has been a tough year for everyone, but now in 2021, the world is finally starting to see the light, as vaccines have begun rolling in, proving to be highly effective in reducing the spread of the pandemic.The team behind Cecilia.ai, the robotic interactive bartender, came up with a new campaign to promote both their product and the importance of getting vaccinated.To increase the awareness of the vaccine, the campaign features Cecilia as a bartender that serves them – in a glass cocktail.In the video, Cecilia.ai mixes the most popular vaccines – tested, tasted, and approved by the “FDA (Funky Drinks Association)”: Pfizerol Spritz, Modertini, Johnson & Tonic, and even the Sputñikolada.The robot is capable of “vaccinating” 120 people per hour, working 24/7, and using contactless technology to reduce the risks of getting infected.To make sense of the concept, the company introduced their “Chief Biomixologist”, Dr. Amy Thomas, who explained: “Cecilia was programmed to guide patients through the available vaccines, inform about the process and side effects, and most importantly – help choose their ideal vaccine-cocktail that fits the patient’s weight, height, and gender.”Especially for April Fools, Cecilia.ai’s team hopes the new “innovation” will encourage more people to get their shot, or at the very least help put a smile on their face through these difficult times.
