In this Webinar, Juan Martinez from John Snow Labs and Ken Puffer from ePlus will share lessons learned from recent AI, ML, and NLP projects that have been successfully built & deployed in US hospital systems:

  • Improving patient flow forecasting at Kaiser Permanente
  • A real-time clinical decision support platform for Psychiatry and Oncology at Mount Sinai
  • Automated de-identification of 700 million patient notes at Providence Health

Then they will showcase a live demo of the recently launched AI Workflow Accelerator Bundle for Healthcare, which provides a complete data science platform including supporting the full AI lifecycle:

  • Data analysis: Enable data analysts to query, visualize & build dashboards without coding
  • Data science: Enable data scientists to train models, share & scale experiments
  • Model deployment options
  • Operations: Enable DevOps & DataOps engineers to monitor, secure, and scale

The bundle is a turnkey solution composed of GPU-accelerated hardware from NVIDIA, proprietary software from John Snow Labs, and implementation services from ePlus. It is unique in providing all of the following healthcare-specific capabilities out of the box:

  • 2,300+ current, clean, and enriched healthcare datasets – from ontologies to benchmarks
  • Spark NLP for Healthcare – the most widely used NLP library in the healthcare industry – along with 250+ pre-trained clinical & biomedical NLP models for analyzing unstructured data
  • Spark OCR – including the ability to read, de-identify, and extract information from DICOM images
  • Security controls implemented within the platform, to enable a team of data scientists to effectively work & collaborate in air-gap, high-compliance environments

We will share speed & accuracy benchmarks measuring the optimization of John Snow Labs software and models on the GPU-accelerated Nvidia hardware – and how this translates to enabling your AI team to deliver bigger projects faster.
