Could AI reduce healthcare waste? Approach of online retailers could provide clues

At the University of California, Irvine, researchers developed a machine learning model to help predict the likelihood that a Covid-19 patient’s condition will worsen to the point of ICU admission, ventilation or death. This model also alerts providers to factors that are most associated with severe Covid-19 cases, including advanced age, gender (men are more likely to develop severe symptoms), hypertension, diabetes and coronary artery disease.
