Oracle Health Services to Use AI/ML to Improve Cancer Treatment; Steve Rosenberg Quoted

Oracle Health Services, a division of Oracle Corporation, announced its participation with The Opportunity Project (TOP) Technology Sprint: Creating the Future of Health to match patients more effectively with clinical trials and experimental therapies, the company announced on Monday

The company’s involvement will utilize artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to standardize data from clinical trial requirement forms to specific eligibility criteria, enable intuitive interfaces that provide data at point of care and track patient care to determine the best treatment for patients. 

Patients would be able to retain their privacy, identity and receive information and therapy that’s relevant to their treatment. Clinical trial participants will be provided through de-identified precision oncology open data sets from the National Cancer Institute and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). 

Steve Rosenberg, senior vice president and general manager said, "It is paramount that we collaborate with our peers within the federal government and technology communities to collectively evaluate what innovative opportunities exist and to explore the potential applications  AI and machine learning can offer to fight deadly diseases such as cancer."

TOP is a 12-week technology development effort involving both private enterprise and government to solve real-world problems using open data. TOP will host its Demo Day 2019 on December 10, 2019 at the U.S. Census Bureau in Suitland, MD.
