Pharmacy Daily - - NEWS -

HITACHI has an­nounced the de­vel­op­ment of a ma­chine learn­ing-based out­come pre­dic­tion and com­par­i­son tech­nol­ogy that pre­dicts with high ac­cu­racy the suc­cess and fail­ure of var­i­ous med­i­ca­tion op­tions for pa­tients with type-2 di­a­betes mel­li­tus, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Univer­sity of Utah Health.

The com­pany said it drew on the knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence from within its staff as well as doc­tors, phar­ma­cists and biomed­i­cal in­for­mati­cists at the univer­sity.

The tech­nol­ogy has the po­ten­tial to sup­port the se­lec­tion of the most ef­fec­tive med­i­ca­tion de­pend­ing on mul­ti­ple fac­tors, the com­pany claims.
