Will artificial intelligence be the enabler for better diagnoses and therapies in future?
Whether you a medical doctor or a citizens and want to know how Artificial Intelligence (AI) can support you in your daily routine: you are definitely right here. Learn more about it in the real-world use case oncology just published in the German article “Für bessere Diagnosen und Therapien: Wie Ärzte und KI in der Krebsbehandlung zusammenarbeiten”. It outlines very specific examples where medical professionals and patients either already benefit or will benefit in near future from the adoption of optimized software tools incorporating AI technology for better outcomes.
Today, treatment alternatives for every oncology patient are individually discussed by medical
experts in so-called tumor boards. However, the molecular analysis of each tumors is very complex and the assessment of individual tumor variants time-consuming. Therefore, specialized molecular tumor boards focus also on the analysis and therapy assessment incorporating fine-grained molecular data.
We worked together with subject-matter experts to defined and evaluate a standardized clinical process, designed adequate tool support, and integrated relevant data source for an improved tumor board experience in molecular tumor boards. For example, we applied the scrum board approach, which is well-known from software engineering, to the clinical challenge.
