Senscio Systems has been granted a US Patent for its invention of an artificial intelligence (AI) framework that enables people with chronic diseases to manage their health proactively and independently from home.

“This AI framework is extraordinary in that it functions like the human brain and employs a semantic model to create knowledge,” explains Dr Piali De, CEO of Senscio Systems, in a media release. “The artificial intelligence harnesses thousands of data points from within the patient’s home and generates insights that identify and prevent gaps in care, reducing the burden on physicians and transforming patient outcomes.”

Senscio Systems has applied this AI framework in Ibis Health, its digital health solution designed to provide personalized care in the home for high-risk patients with complex chronic conditions, including COPD, congestive heart failure, diabetes, hypertension, depression, or anxiety.

Via the AI framework, Ibis Health collect and contextualizes behavioral and biometric data from the home setting, thereby creating a window into the patient’s health. Ibis detects adverse changes in the patient’s health and immediately alerts the patient, caregiver, and provider with recommendations for behavioral or clinical interventions that reduce the need for acute care or hospitalization.

“In the next five years we will see technology start to transform how we care for people in the home, and artificial intelligence is poised to become an integral part of home health care,” De adds, in the release. “Ibis not only functions as a member of the patient’s care team, it augments the intelligence of patients and caregivers with artificial, cognitive assistance.

In addition to artificial intelligence, a key component of the Ibis Health system is relationship based care and support. Each patient enrolled in the program is matched with a personal Care Navigator who develops a comprehensive care plan and coaches the patient on how to effectively use the Ibis care station. When the artificial intelligence flags a patient’s health status, the Care Navigator personally contacts the patient to ensure the patient follows the self-rescue measures directed by the AI and, if self-rescue measures fail or stall, coordinates timely and proactive interventions by the clinical care team to mitigate the situation in the home, the release explains.

“What I like most about Ibis is that it engages patients in their own healthcare, which helps them feel less anxious and more active and empowered. This is a huge benefit to the patient.” says Brian Anderson, a Personal Care Navigator at Senscio Systems.
