The Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS), a musculoskeletal health institution, has received support from philanthropic venture Schmidt Futures to support its artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning research and development efforts.
The philanthropic initiative, founded by Eric and Wendy Schmidt, will establish the HSS Data Innovation Lab, creating the world’s largest curated musculoskeletal data ecosystem.
This lab aims to bring together AI researchers and clinicians to modernise healthcare delivery, fostering interdisciplinary collaboration for improved healthcare through better data and advanced analytics.
HSS chief performance officer Scott DeNegre said: “The future of musculoskeletal care delivery will be driven by expertise increasingly augmented with data and technology to expand access, monitor musculoskeletal health, study movement, and prevent disease.
“We have a timely opportunity to marry the foremost experts in medicine, data science, and technology to design a better system of care.”
The initiative seeks to leverage AI to transform healthcare by enhancing medical decision-making, treatment planning, and providing personalised care at scale.
