Study: AI Increases Utilization of Palliative Care Services in a Real-World Setting

Results demonstrate how prescriptive intelligence can help drive down healthcare costs and improve end-of-life care.

68% of deceased cancer patients are never referred to palliative care. AI-powered prescriptive insights are changing that, helping oncologists know when it’s the right time to refer patients for palliative care.

A recent study published by JCO Oncology Practice found that Jvion’s clinical AI helped oncologists at Northwest Medical Specialties better predict short-term mortality, resulting in a nearly two-fold increase in palliative care consults and a 12-fold increase in hospice referrals within two years.
