Cardinal Health recently released a platform designed to support oncology professionals by making available a robust set of AI-powered capabilities including:

1. Tools to help deliver coordinated, comprehensive, high-quality cancer care for patients in all treatment settings;

2. Actionable and effective insights that help patients become active participants in their treatment plan;

3. Resources to help develop palliative care plans that respect the values and desires of the patient and his or her family.

Additionally, the platform uses machine learning to identify patients at risk of 30-day mortality who would have been missed by conventional predictive analytic approaches. According to their self-published case study, the deployment of this platform led to an 80% increase in patients referred to palliative care and an increase in those getting flagged for depression.
