Health Care Innovation: Crain’s Detroit
Recent innovative developments in Michigan include a statewide telestroke program at the University of Michigan, a precision medicine program at Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute and a device that can identify pathogens developed by Seraph Biosciences Inc., a Detroit-based spinoff company of Wayne State University.
At Crain’s 12th annual Health Care Leadership Summit, moderator David Ellis, a futurist and also head of the Detroit International Research and Education Foundation, led a three-member panel on a discussion about how innovation has changed medicine and patient care. [Dr. Gregory Auner], one of the co-founders of Seraph, said individualized genetic analysis will transform cancer treatment. But the massive amount of data available will challenge researchers and clinicians going forward.
“Something that is quite interesting is deep learning (or) artificial intelligence that can be gathered through data from different sources, images, diagnostic signals … and put that together and provide that as a tool,” Auner said. “I see that probably is the biggest future breakthrough.”
