Integrated multimodal artificial intelligence framework for healthcare applications
LR Soenksen et al, NPJ Digital Medicine, September 20, 2022

AI systems leveraging multiple data sources and input modalities are poised to become a viable method to deliver more accurate results and deployable pipelines across a wide range of applications. In this work, we propose and evaluate a unified Holistic AI in Medicine (HAIM) framework to facilitate the generation and testing of AI systems that leverage multimodal inputs. Our approach uses generalizable data pre-processing and machine learning modeling stages that can be readily adapted for research and deployment in healthcare environments.

Machine Learning Algorithms for Prediction of Survival by Stress Echocardiography in Chronic Coronary Syndromes
L Cortiginai et al, J Per Med, September 16, 2022

Stress echocardiography (SE) is based on regional wall motion abnormalities and coronary flow velocity reserve (CFVR). Their independent prognostic capabilities could be better studied with a machine learning (ML) approach. The study aims to assess the SE outcome data by conducting an analysis with an ML approach. We included 6881 prospectively recruited and retrospectively analyzed patients with suspected (n = 4279) or known (n = 2602) coronary artery disease.

Steps to avoid overuse and misuse of machine learning in clinical research
V Volovici et al, Nature Medicine, September 12, 2022,

Machine learning algorithms are a powerful tool in healthcare, but sometimes perform no better than traditional statistical techniques. Steps should be taken to ensure that algorithms are not overused or misused, in order to provide genuine benefit for patients. The lackluster performance of many machine learning (ML) systems in healthcare has been well documented. In healthcare, as in other areas, AI algorithms can even perpetuate human prejudices such as sexism and racism when trained on biased datasets.

Subpopulation-specific machine learning prognosis for underrepresented patients with double prioritized bias correction
S Afrose et al, Comm Medicine, September 1, 2022

Biases exist in the widely accepted one-machine-learning-model-fits-all-population approach. We invent a bias correction method that produces specialized machine learning prognostication models for underrepresented racial and age groups. This technique may reduce potentially life-threatening prediction mistakes for minority populations.
