Indian digital engineering company Persistent Systems recently announced the launch Generative AI-powered Population Health Management (PHM) Solution.
The solution, which is developed in collaboration with Microsoft, aims to transform healthcare delivery by focusing on Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) to predict healthcare costs and address patients' non-clinical needs effectively.
Leveraging Azure OpenAI service
As per the company's statement, The partnership will enable Persistent to leverage Microsoft Azure OpenAI Service and Dynamics 365 Customer Insights. Notably, the association also combines Persistent's deep domain expertise with Microsoft's cutting-edge technology to enhance patient care quality and operational efficiency in healthcare.
Utilizing EHR data

By doing so, it aims to prevent unnecessary emergency department visits, readmissions, and extended hospital stays, the company said in a statement.
