OM1 Unveils Patented, AI-powered Platform to Accelerate Personalized Medicine

OM1 Unveils Patented

OM1, a leading real-world data, outcomes and technology company with a focus on chronic conditions, today launched PhenOM™, its artificial intelligence-powered platform for personalized medicine. Calibrated using OM1’s longitudinal health history datasets, PhenOM uses AI to identify unique digital phenotypes associated with conditions and outcomes and compare patients’ records to them to highlight risks and opportunities. PhenOM powers personalized healthcare insights at scale across the entire healthcare ecosystem, from life science research to point-of-care clinical decision making.

PhenOM is an AI that gathers detailed information from large patient datasets – including unstructured clinical notes and disease activity metrics – to isolate unique patterns associated with patients with distinct characteristics. PhenOM synthesizes these patterns into unique digital phenotypes or ‘fingerprints.’ These phenotypes can be studied to inform research and deployed in real-world datasets – inside and outside OM1 – as well as in health systems and through standalone patient-facing web portals.

Calibrated using OM1’s differentiated, high-quality data cloud – which is based on billions of data points from more than 300 million patients – PheonOM was built with expert clinician oversight. With an overarching mission to improve individual care and population health, the platform powers five solutions that address pain points across the healthcare system

  • Diagnostic Insights: Finding patients with rare, undiagnosed, or misdiagnosed conditions, including subgroups of interest
  • Treatment Insights: Personalizing treatment recommendations to improve access to care and individualizing treatment selection
  • Risk Insights: Predicting risk of specific negative outcomes, including disease progression, complications, and catastrophic events
  • Utilization Insights: Enabling focus on patients at risk for higher utilization, and utilization growth, over time
  • Clinical Trial Insights: Accelerating trial startup and recruitment by identifying patients most likely to meet qualifications for enrollment, including those potentially overlooked

Patient expectations over the last several years have shifted – from the adoption of virtual care and accessibility to the use of advanced technology to improve outcomes – but a persistent gap remains between population-level insights and individual patient experience: personalization. Recognizing this gap, OM1 developed PhenOM to translate patterns in large-scale data into meaningful outputs at the individual level and to better understand patient populations, diagnoses, progression, and treatment response.

“Most people have now heard of the promise of AI through GPT-4, but we still have not seen many really mature, real-world clinical applications using advanced language models,” said Dr. Joseph Zabinski, Managing Director of AI & Personalized Medicine at OM1. “PhenOM is groundbreaking technology because it uses AI to translate actionable insights from our highly enriched datasets and phenotyping technology into opportunities for more personalized healthcare. This capability creates a huge potential for impact for all stakeholders, from identifying patients with under-diagnosed conditions to enabling personalized assessments of benefit for particular therapies and accelerating clinical trial enrollment.”

Endo Launches Bivalirudin Injection in Ready-to-Use Vials

PRNewswire | July 19, 2023

Endo International plc announced that its Par Sterile Products business has begun shipping bivalirudin injection in a ready-to-use 250 mg/50 mL single-use vial. It is the only ready-to-use liquid format of bivalirudin on the market in the U.S. "Hospital practitioners work hard to provide quality patient care while also meeting operational challenges," said Scott Sims, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Injectable Solutions & Generics at Endo. "With ready-to-use products like bivalirudin, we're helping to deliver solutions that reduce complexity for healthcare providers—so they can focus on patient care." In May 2023, Endo executed agreements with MAIA Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and Gland Pharma Limited, India to commercialize ready-to-use bivalirudin in the U.S. The product, manufactured by Gland Pharma Limited, is an anticoagulant (thrombin inhibitor) that helps prevent the formation of blood clots. It is used to prevent blood clots in people with severe chest pain or other conditions who are undergoing an angioplasty procedure. Ready-to-use, or RTU, products streamline operations for hospitals by eliminating the need to prepare or transfer the product before patient administration. This may reduce waste and costs, optimize convenience and workflow and reduce the chance for preparation error—all of which support quality patient care DRUG INTERACTIONS In clinical trials in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), co-administration of bivalirudin with heparin, warfarin, thrombolytics, or GPls was associated with increased risks of major bleeding events compared to patients not receiving these concomitant medications. USE IN SPECIFIC POPULATIONS Geriatric Use In studies of patients undergoing PCI, 44% were ≥65 years of age and 12% of patients were ≥75 years old. Elderly patients experienced more bleeding events than younger patients. Renal Impairment The disposition of bivalirudin was studied in PTCA patients with mild, moderate and severe renal impairment. The clearance of bivalirudin was reduced approximately 21% in patients with moderate and severe renal impairment and was reduced approximately 70% in dialysis- dependent patients. The infusion dose of bivalirudin injection may need to be reduced, and anticoagulant status monitored in patients with renal impairment. INDICATION AND USAGE Bivalirudin injection is indicated for use as an anticoagulant in patients undergoing PCI, including patients with heparin-induced thrombocytopenia and heparin-induced thrombocytopenia and thrombosis syndrome. About Endo Endo is a specialty pharmaceutical company committed to helping everyone we serve live their best life through the delivery of quality, life-enhancing therapies. Our decades of proven success come from passionate team members around the globe collaborating to bring treatments forward. Together, we boldly transform insights into treatments benefiting those who need them, when they need them.
