RSV Vaccines to save Children's Lives
MACHINE LEARNING & ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TOOLS IMPROVE ACCESS WITH FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS FUNDED BY SAVINGS
Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence tools can identify patients, estimate the costs to the system, quantify the savings from life saving medications and support investment from financial instruments to loan the health system funds to provide.
Many children's diseases can be prevented by a vaccine. Today, hundreds of thousands of children die or are hospitalized with a preventable children's disease. Machine learning and artificial intelligence has and can again be applied to identify such disease; RSV explored in this instance.
RSV affects ~100% of children by age 2 and 2% of these babies require hospitalization which kills 60,000 babies annually. In the USA, only preterm infants are reimbursed for the RSV vaccine and not all receive. The lives saved and avoiding hospitalization are priceless and in the millions of dollars saved for a preventable vaccine.
