They really need an algorithm to identify how many people due each year, because their insurance found a way to not pay for treatment. An algorithm that would identify the biases of physicians and it’s impact on public health, would be a real life saver, and save a lot of money too. In the land of alternative facts, where publicists, propagandists and content marketers, spin stories like this all day long, they give the appearance that clever people are actually applying science to healthcare. The rush to patent and profit from these high tech gimmicks, is not saving any lives, nor improving our healthcare system.
A lot more lives could be saved developing an algorithm that would identify the effect of racial, gender and socio economic status biases in healthcare. Of course there is no profit or incentive to come up with anything like that. Anything associated with the Mayo Clinic gets an additional level of prestige and free “news’ articles that are really only sophisticated but deceptive content marketing.
