Of the many ingredients that go into quality healthcare, comprehensive patient data is close to the top of the list.
No one knows this more than Mayur Saxena, CEO and founder of Droice Labs. Saxena created his startup while pursuing his doctorate degree at Columbia University and working at a healthcare company conducting clinical trials on new medication.
He is energized by the plethora of opportunities to improve healthcare using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning.
‘Patient data is notoriously disorganized and complex,’ Saxena said. ‘With machine learning, healthcare professionals can organize that information to better understand the disease of every patient and reach them faster with interventions that improve their lives. It’s an amazing feeling when you talk with someone who’s recovered from an illness because they received the right care.’
The idea behind Droice is to make messy data neat so people can spend less time organizing it and more time analyzing it.
