  • 2017 № 3 Reengineering of public health system, based on a person-centered model, hybrid project management approaches and methods of artificial intelligence

    The paper considers new approaches of public health emerging on the platform of the technological revolution of information systems. The authors describe the key methods of managerial, technological and mathe- matical interaction with the collective information infrastructure of the healthcare system that will bring qualitative changes in the near future and will form the basis of a digital society, digital economy and public health of a new type. The methods are considered from the point of view of their influence on the formation of new approaches in the process of the economic and social transformation of waves of innovation. The model of the person-centered health care system and the forecast of its impact on the subject area are presented, the advantages of the new model are summarized and the agile project management approaches to its implementation in the current stage of development are presented.

  • 2018 № 2 Decision Support System for Choosing Correction Tactics of Internal Carotid Arteries Stenosis

    Along with the medical systems development there is an important task on creation of medical decision support systems (DSS), in particular, capable of predicting the probability of postoperative complications. Computer methods of data analysis make it possible to successfully use both classical methods of applied statistics and modern heuristic procedures for identifying latent (hidden) knowledge in patients’ databases with subsequent construction of predictive models. The article describes the DSS, which automates the prediction of complications probability in the surgical treatment of internal carotid arteries stenoses by carotid endarterectomy and angiostentiation methods basing on the clinical parameters of the patient’s condition before treatment and the technological parameters of the operative intervention. The DSS is based on such classification methods as classification trees and neural networks, the training sample for the classification is the database of patients, who have been treated, with the information of complications presence or absence availiable. Studies, preceding the DSS development were implemented in the STATISTICA package environment. The entrance into program is automated. At the user’s require, the patient data, needed for the calculation is imported into the prediction program module of complications probability from the Excel table. Also, at the user’s request, the prediction results can be saved in the source table.

  • Artificial intelligence in health care
  • 2018 № 3 The basic recommendations for the creation and development of information systems in health care based on artificial intelligence

    Artificial intelligence is becoming one of the main drivers in solving serious problems of medicine and health, such as inadequate resources, further improving efficiency, quality and speed of work. All over the world, more and more solutions are being developed in this area. However, the more new products appear, the more questions and problems arise.
    The work analyzes some foreign publications and research results, which studied the main problems associated with the creation and implementation of artificial intelligence in health care. As a result of the analysis, a number of practical recommendations were formulated that will help increase the likelihood of successful creation and introduction of such products in the practical link of health.
