Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning are amongst the hottest technologies on the planet. The healthcare sector benefits enormously from these advances due to the size of its challenges, volume of adverse events (risk) and the savings/revenue potential. Life2 has developed a unique platform that is nothing short of a powerful “healthcare GPS” – providing proactive, real-time, course-correcting actions that mitigate risk.
Every human being and healthcare event are uniquely complex. Fueled by vast amounts of worldwide healthcare data that doubles roughly every 72 days, this environment breeds enormous complexity & risk. Life2 handles complex risk management needs that cannot be addressed by human problem solving.
