‘In Conversation with Change Makers’ Episode #4

Industry thought leader and Best Case Scenario Founder & Director Luli Adeyemo returns with the fourth episode of the ‘In Conversation with Change Makers’ video and podcast series, to discuss ‘Ethical & Effective AI in Healthcare’ with RMIT University’s Executive Dean, School of Computing Technologies and Telstra Health’s ‘2021 Brilliant Women in Digital Health’ award recipient, Professor Karin Verspoor.

"We can’t bring together large data sets unless we have the mechanisms to do so.”

Ethical & Effective AI in Healthcare

Some of the biggest concerns surrounding the use of AI when conducting healthcare studies are focussed around representation, data privacy concerns, and how the digitisation of treatment benefits both healthcare practitioners and patients.

“Ensuring we respect the privacy of the data as AI algorithms are hungry for data, we can’t bring together large data sets unless we have the mechanisms to do so” says Karin, adding “there are efforts to bring data across multiple sources but we’re not quite there yet.”

Professor Karin Verspoor has been applying AI skills in the biomedical domain since 2003, addressing problems ranging from information extraction of biological concepts and events to the use of text mining to support interpretation of biological data, to detection and prediction of disease from clinical data.

Joining RMIT University in February, Professor Verspoor is responsible for providing academic leadership for all aspects of computer science research and education. As a computer scientist by training with an emphasis on artificial intelligence and cognitive science, as well as language representation and processing in the biomedical domain, she investigates some of the challenges of AI in healthcare including the lack of diversity and inclusion.

The fourth episode of the ‘In Conversation with Change Makers’ uncovers the biggest challenges facing healthcare post-Pandemic and AI-enabled services.

‘In Conversation with Change Makers’ Episode #3

Speaking directly with influential change makers within Healthcare, Government, and Technology, Best Case Scenario Founder & Director Luli Adeyemo is creating dialogue to uncover disruptive innovations, developing trends, and ethical responsibilities from those at the forefront of making change.

"Passion for inclusivity in business comes from real life experiences."

The highly anticipated third instalment of In Conversation with Change Makers features Laura Simmons, CEO and Founder of Theratrak, discussing inclusivity within the technology landscape for families and children with disabilities, and the benefits of digitising treatment offers both therapists and participants.

Theratrak is the centralised hub for therapists to securely manage and connect to a clinical team. Within it, professional developers and support therapists create activities specific to one’s treatment style and needs, while allowing one to take expertise home with the use of their app to get the most out of every session, stay on track, and reach certain goals.

Theratrak aims to empower clinicians with the right digital tools to provide the best possible early intervention to children living with disabilities. Founded in 2018, this platform is meant to prescribe home programs for children and families including custom content and notifications. “The minute someone leaves a medical practitioner, they forget up to 80% of the information they’re told. Okay so that’s a medical practitioner. What about a mum who’s got a little boy with autism?” Laura explains. Theratrak captures visual information and therapist’s notes then sends this directly to the participant app so the program can easily be completed by the participant at home.

Laura Simmons has worked across Sydney as a paediatric occupational therapist in the private health sector for almost 10 years. While working with children living with a variety of disabilities and learning difficulties, her aim is to assist them and their families in everyday life to help them to fully participate and have the best quality of life possible.

In the third edition of the ‘In Conversation with Change Makers’ series, Laura uncovers some of the biggest challenges facing healthcare during the pandemic, and how her digital platform allows multi-disciplinary teams to bridge the gap between therapy sessions to create a more inclusive model of healthcare.
