Neural networks and AI for behavioral health applications


  • Development and deployment of neural networks and artificial intelligence for predicting and tracking of behavioral health, Savant Care Inc. (2014 - Present)

    Artificial intelligence is the future. Through the use of a robust EMR integrated with an advance neural network, the SCBrain AI is able to parse data and make smart decisions and recommendations to providers based on patients' diagnosis, life events, medications, etc... From self-learning, the AI is also able to predict risks and associations between certain risk factors or behavioral changes which may produce or be indicative of an onset of a behavioral health crisis or event.
