A multinational pharmaceutical and biotechnology corporation sought to validate its Long COVID model, generalize an AI model, and establish disease definition workflows to other disease types. The team also wanted to include user interface development for marketers to surface market access related insights and provide guidance on data processing, modeling, operationalization, and visualization efforts across multiple workstreams.
Business Talent Group (BTG) paired the client with an award-winning scholar and entrepreneur with a PhD from MIT in artificial intelligence and extensive experience in technical and strategic consulting across several key industries. The consultant supported the initiative by cleansing and preparing data assets for ingestion, characterizing performance, and preparing figures and materials to communicate results as a scientific paper in order to prepare the Long COVID model for deployment by health care providers. He also developed a tool to map features from literature to features in Optum and generalized the algorithm and modeling framework for prediction to create data-driven disease definitions while providing advice and insights on best practices and strategies for conducting and translating technical work to be used by a variety of audiences.
