Movement as Medicine, with an AI Assist – By John Halamka, M.D. & Paul Cerrato, Mayo Clinic Platform (@MayoPlatform) – With so much attention focused on generative AI and digital solutions to manage life-threatening disorders, it’s easy to overlook some of the simpler things, like the value of exercise and nutrition in preventing and treating disease. Numerous studies have shown that physical movement can help relieve the symptoms of arthritis and Parkinson’s disease, alleviate mental depression, and reduce the risk of Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. And researchers have found that the benefits don’t necessarily require patients to work up a sweat through vigorous exercise programs or spend hours a day at their local gym. The challenge, however, is finding ways to get patients enthusiastic enough about physical activity to get engaged.

AI-Powered Triage Platform Could Aid Future Viral Outbreak ResponseBy Colin Poitras, Yale School of Public Health (@YaleSPH) – A team of researchers from Yale University and other institutions globally has developed an innovative patient triage platform powered by artificial intelligence (AI) that the researchers say is capable of predicting patient disease severity and length of hospitalization during a viral outbreak. The platform, which leverages machine learning and metabolomics data, is intended to improve patient management and help health care providers allocate resources more efficiently during severe viral outbreaks that can quickly overwhelm local health care systems. Metabolomics is the study of small molecules related to cell metabolism.
