IBC and NYU in $1-million diabetes data study

Posted: April 30, 2013

Independence Blue Cross said it will spend close to $1 million over three years in a research collaboration with New York University to learn how to use large-scale data analysis to spot cases of undiagnosed diabetes and to predict pre-diabetes.

IBC's contribution includes a $600,000 grant and other support. The researchers at NYU's Initiative in Data Science and Statistics will use IBC's medical and pharmacy claims data to develop artificial-intelligence methods for predicting which patients have undiagnosed diabetes and which patients are at risk of developing diabetes. - Harold Brubaker
