How Deep and Shallow Learning can Work Together to Create Cost Savings

Think Tank - 12:35 pm - 12:55 pm

How deep and shallow learning can work together to create cost savings Applying artificial intelligence to patient data enables efficiencies and better outcomes for its Medicaid patients. For all the hype and excited pronouncements about the impacts it can have driving healthcare efficiencies, artificial intelligence is still not deployed as widely (or wisely) as it could be.But many health systems are working in earnest to roll out AI-driven analytics projects - even if their particular payoff isn't quite yet in sight - with the understanding that the technology is evolving at a dizzying pace, and big improvements could be just around the corner. 


  1. Potential for AI and machine learning for better population health outcomes 
  2. Utilizing shallow learning - gain similarly useful insights from smaller data sets with less heavy lifting than we are using with deep learning 
  3. Predicting hospitalization, emergency room use, or predicting high-cost patients versus low-cost patients
  4. Predicting the risk for the populations we are managing.
