Using AI to Personalize Anemia Management in Chronic Kidney Disease Patients
Divya will discuss how AI is powering the personalization of Erythropoietin-stimulating Agent (ESA) therapy for renal anemia that often goes hand-in-hand with dialysis treatment for the more than 15% of adults in the United States suffering from Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). AI is being used within cloud-based, clinical decision support tools to assist healthcare providers to determine a patient’s personalized response to ESAs that are prescribed to treat anemia. Using AI, and specifically, control algorithms, which are based on years of peer-reviewed research at the University of Louisville, helps to calculate each patient’s unique place on the spectrum of dose-response and provide an optimal dose recommendation to keep that patient as close to their hemoglobin target as possible. In fact, the use of AI has enabled a steep reduction in patient outlier hemoglobins and an increase in the percentage of patients within a hemoglobin target range, while cutting the time spent on determining the new ESA dose to 30 to 45 seconds per patient.
