BERG Enters into Multi-Year Agreement with BD for Next-Generation Analytics in Healthcare IT

Leading Health Companies Combine Health IT Expertise to Advance Patient Health Outcomes

BOSTON, Jan. 12, 2017  BERG, a biopharmaceutical company uncovering health solutions through a data-driven, biological research approach, announced a multi-year agreement between BERG Analytics, a division of BERG, and BD’s MedMined™ solution.  This new collaboration will leverage the combined healthcare IT expertise of BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) and BERG to focus on the development of a medication adherence algorithm that will help healthcare workers identify certain patient populations that are at the highest risk for nonadherence post-discharge. Through this innovative solution, clinicians will be able to better prioritize patient interventions and engage the most appropriate ancillary staff to improve patient outcomes once they leave the hospital.

Slava Akmaev, Chief Analytics Officer at BERG said, “Through this new collaboration, we look forward to advancing clinical decision making through predictive analytics. This pro-active surveillance solution will drive targeted medication adherence programs and ultimately, improve patient outcomes.”

BERG Analytics’ proprietary artificial intelligence-based platform bAIcis™ will be used to gather Patient Intelligence™ and develop custom risk models of medication non-adherence for a number of chronic and acute conditions to enhance BD’s MedMined™  solution for healthcare providers. BERG’s bAIcis(tm) analyzes data in a hypothesis free manner, discovering new knowledge in an unbiased and strictly data driven way.

“We are at a tipping point in healthcare IT, where merging key technologies such as BERG data driven analytics platform and BD’s data mining expertise can provide more informed, precise solutions for clinicians,” said Niven R. Narain, Co-founder, President and CEO of BERG. “Utilizing these technologies to understand patient populations and offer clinical decision support will become the cornerstone of creating more efficient healthcare delivery.”
