IQVIA™ (NYSE:IQV), a leading global provider of advanced analytics, technology solutions, and clinical research services to the life science industry, today announced that it has been selected as winner of the “Best AI-based Solution for Healthcare” award in the sixth annual AI Breakthrough Awards, a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global Artificial Intelligence (AI) market today.

IQVIA was recognized for its AI software, including natural language processing (NLP) technology, which analyzes complex and unstructured patient data to provide unique insight into patient care and disease states. Used across life science and healthcare customers, IQVIA’s leading AI software unlocks critical insights for population health, including social determinants of health (SDoH), which account for the majority of health outcomes.

In one particular use case, this technology is helping clinicians at NorthShore – Edward-Elmhurst Health, the third-largest healthcare delivery system in Illinois, identify and screen 56% more at-risk patients based on SDoH, enabling targeted intervention to patients in need.

“Congratulations to IQVIA for delivering true breakthrough AI technology for the healthcare market. Their AI and NLP solution delivers a reliable, repeatable, and transparent means for healthcare organizations to transform their understanding of patient level social determinants of health,” said James Johnson, managing director, AI Breakthrough. “AI & NLP solutions are often a black box making it difficult to understand. IQVIA addresses this challenge head-on, providing a breakthrough AI-based solution already leading to improved patient outcomes.”

“IQVIA is honored to receive this award and would like to thank AI Breakthrough for understanding the importance of this work,” said Benjamin Hughes, SVP Artificial Intelligence and Real World Data at IQVIA. “Healthcare organizations are trying to understand how they can positively impact patient outcomes through better use of the vast data available.
