Smart, targeted innovations make healthcare more accessible and affordable, with lower costs for hospitals and better patient outcomes, as Moh Noori, founder and CEO of AI heart disease predicter ScriptChain Health, shows in this article, the second installment in his blog series.

SAN FRANCISCO - The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has significantly improved health equity with its investments in countries around the world and some of the partnerships it has secured ensure better access to care, medical equipment, vaccines, health guidelines, supplies and other essentials needed for anyone aspiring to a decent lifestyle.

For more advanced nations, the next steps are to continue growing and shifting to proactive care by using advanced technologies to help predict and prevent illness and offer precise medicine for all. Given the vast amount of medical data available within electronic medical record (EMR) systems, there are plenty of opportunities to help predict illnesses, prevent them from occurring in the first place, and help physicians use technologies that will enhance the patient experience, achieve better patient outcomes, and lower the costs of care for healthcare institutions.
