Dr. Samantha Anthony Awarded Fellowship in Compassion and Artificial Intelligence!

AMS Healthcare is excited to introduce its new cohort of Fellows in Compassion and Artificial Intelligence. The recipients, chosen by an external expert panel, will explore how compassion and technology can collaborate to address the rapid transformations in healthcare. With the support of AMS, they will join previous cohorts in reshaping every aspect of healthcare, making a significant impact on the Canadian population. AMS CEO Helen Angus expresses enthusiasm for the opportunity to nurture their talents and foster collaboration within the healthcare community. Learn more here.

We are thrilled to announce that Dr. Samantha Anthony, has been awarded a fellowship for her project titled “Capturing Patients’ Voices through Innovative AI Technology to Enhance Compassionate Healthcare,” The CDTRP wishes to congratulate and recognize Dr. Anthony’s amazing work at the intersection of healthcare and artificial intelligence!
  • “The overall goal of this research is to integrate PROMs efficiently and effectively into clinical practice by leveraging information and communication technologies to amplify patients’ voices and improve their health outcomes. This project aligns perfectly with the AMS Fellowship that promotes innovative digital technology to advance compassionate healthcare. I am looking forward to the continuation of our existing partnership with CDTRP to position Voxe, an electronic PROMs platform, at the forefront of transforming the delivery of care for pediatric patients.” – Dr. Samantha Anthony

Patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) are standardized instruments that systematically document a patient’s perspective of their quality of life. Voxe is an electronic PROM (ePROM) platform app for youth with chronic conditions that illuminates underlying concerns that are often missed in clinical encounters. Currently, healthcare providers (HCPs) can use Voxe to view PROM data, yet no automated process identifies actionable patterns within results. Samantha aims to develop “Smart Alerts”, notifications generated by artificial intelligence (AI) to alert HCPs about significant changes in PROM results. The objective is to explore the impact of Voxe “Smart Alerts” on HCPs, patients and compassionate care. Learn more here.

This grant will enable Dr. Anthony to pursue the Voxe study (Voxe: An electronic platform to introduce Patient-Reported Outcome Measures into clinical care), which earned her first place in the 2022 Institute of Human Development, Child and Youth Health (IHDCYH) Talks Video Competition.
