JARVIS(DHL): Transforming Chronic Care for Diabetes, Hypertension and HyperLipidemia (DHL) with AI

The team will develop an AI system called JARVISDHL to gather local healthcare data in order to create AI algorithms and models. This will facilitate practice of evidence-based personalised care and shared-decision making by primary care physicians. 

The project aims to integrate multiple solutions into a consolidated AI platform which can be used to improve the 3H care delivery process.

Benefits to Primary Care Team

  • Predictive Care for 3H Patients
  • Evidence-based Personalised Care
  • Right Site-care of Patients

Enable predictive care for 3H patients through early screening and risk stratification. 

Facilitate practice of evidence-based personalised care and shared-decision making by primary care physicians.

Physicians will get to the right site-care of patients rather than the usual reactive event-driven sequential referral model, thus spending less physical time in healthcare institutions, optimizing healthcare utilization. For example, JARVIS will recommend evidence based treatment options, quantify personalised treatment benefits and risk of complications, adapt treatment regimen based on lifestyle, alleviate anxiety over perceived side effects and support holistic clinical decision-making


Benefits to End-users

Patients are empowered to take ownership of their healthcare journey beyond the clinical visits through the use of technologies for patient education and self care.
