Accenture Joins AI4BetterHearts

March 30, 2022

Accenture has joined AI4BetterHearts, a global data collaborative founded by Microsoft and the Novartis Foundation, that aims to help stakeholders — from policy makers to patients — make better decisions about heart health and improve the health of entire populations.

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death globally. Three-quarters of CV deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries, and many are preventable.

AI4BetterHearts leverages heart health data from different sources, using artificial intelligence (AI) and advanced analytics to better understand the drivers of CV health, including health inequities, in large populations. Accenture joins the collaboration to further the development of AI insights that can help improve population-wide cardiovascular health outcomes.

"We are joining the AI4BetterHearts collaborative to help further its ambitions to prevent cardiovascular disease. By applying technology, we can develop data-driven insights on the true catalysts of health and equity and help drive informed decisions for policy change," said Stuart Henderson, global Life Sciences lead for Accenture. "We aim to contribute to sustainable population health by integrating innovation and emerging technologies."

Ann Aerts, head of the Novartis Foundation, said, “We’re developing new open-source AI insights that can help policy makers, health professionals and patients make better decisions about health and ultimately improve the heart health of entire populations. We look forward to welcoming new partners who share our mission and who want to leverage their data and expertise for population health impact.”
