CMS Artificial Intelligence (AI) Health Outcomes Challenge announces 25 Participants to advance to Stage 1

“The CMS Artificial Intelligence (AI) Health Outcomes Challenge is an opportunity for innovators to demonstrate how AI tools – such as deep learning and neural networks – can be used to predict unplanned hospital and skilled nursing facility admissions and adverse events.

Partnering with the American Academy of Family Physicians and Arnold Ventures, the CMS AI Health Outcomes Challenge will engage with innovators from all sectors – not just from healthcare – to harness AI solutions to predict health outcomes for potential use in CMS Innovation Center innovative payment and service delivery models.

Challenge Objectives

  1. Use AI/deep learning methodologies to predict unplanned hospital and SNF admissions and adverse events within 30 days for Medicare beneficiaries, based on a data set of Medicare administrative claims data, including Medicare Part A (hospital) and Medicare Part B (professional services).
  2. Develop innovative strategies and methodologies to: explain the AI-derived predictions to front-line clinicians and patients to aid in providing appropriate clinical resources to model participants; and increase use of AI-enhanced data feedback for quality improvement activities among model participants.” Learn more about the challenge here.
