AI for better patient safety

Our guest: Dr. Gidi Stein

Dr. Gidi Stein is the CEO & Co-Founder of MedAware, which utilizes AI-driven outlier detection technology to mitigate medication-related risks and evolving adverse drug events.
 
He is an award-winning physician, researcher, technologist and an expert in medical informatics. Early in his career, he served as CTO and Chief Architect of several algorithm-rich startup companies in Israel.

In this episode, Dr. Stein starts off by giving us a context of medical errors and patient safety. He then gives us eye opening examples of how unintentional but yet simple medical errors like an incorrectly prescribed drug, an overdose of a drug or a treatment pathway that doesn't match the profile of the patient being treated may have catastrophic consequences. The AI based patient safety platform that Medaware has built helps safeguard patients from these possibilities while not overburdening clinicians with irrelevant alerts during the course of care.
