#BMIweekendReads - Machine Learning in Medicine

This review article in the New England Journal of Medicine provides a vision for where Machine Learning in Medicine is now (Figure 1), where it is going (Figure 2), and how we get there.

I am encouraged by the Clinician Workflow section which calls for “Machine learning that…can help expose relevant information in a patient’s chart for a clinician without multiple clicks.” Such workflow efficiencies are precisely what a Learning Electronic Medical Record (LEMR; pronounced lemur) System is designed to do.
