I am a pediatric cardiologist and have cared for children with heart disease for the past three decades. In addition, I have an educational background in business and finance as well as healthcare administration and global health – I gained a Masters Degree in Public Health from UCLA and taught Global Health there after I completed the program.
The inaugural issue of new journal, Intelligence-Based Medicine is now available. The journal aims to create meaningful synergy between practicing clinicians and others including computer scientists, data scientists, engineers, cognitive scientists and entrepreneurs in deploying methods of artificial intelligence and human cognition in the practice of medicine and the delivery of healthcare.
The primary focus of the journal is on the clinical perspective and translation of emerging technologies into care practices and patient benefits. Topics encompass new dimensions of medicine and healthcare relevant to artificial intelligence, including; medical imaging, decision support, precision medicine, robotic process automation as well as relevant topics that focus on intelligence in medicine and healthcare such as virtual and augmented reality, blockchain, 3D printing, wearable technology and embedded AI, ethics and bias.
The journal will prove invaluable for all clinicians as well as bioinformaticians and data scientists with artificial intelligence and data science interests and backgrounds. It welcomes research from all medical domains, with special focus on current AI-focused fields such as oncology, radiology, surgery, genomic medicine, pathology, epidemiology, neurology, cardiology and critical care medicine.
Original research articles, review articles as well as reviews of hot topics, opinions and case reports are all welcomed. Editor-in-Chief Anthony Chang said, “We all worked incredibly hard on this first issue and the articles reflect a very close clinician-data scientist collaboration. As of now, we have over 100 manuscripts reviewed and about 25 or so accepted for publication. I’d like to extend congratulations to the Elsevier publishing team as well as to our MI3/CHOC/AIMed/MIS/ABAIM family of organizations and supporters. It really is a milestone event for AI in medicine and healthcare.”
