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.

- Patients receiving palliative care have better quality of life, fewer depressive symptoms and live almost 3 months longer.1
