Government customer success: U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is looking for innovative ways to address the issue of veteran suicide with its Mission Daybreak grand challenge. In response, Red Hat joined global consulting services provider Guidehouse and Philip Held, Ph.D. of Rush University Medical Center to develop new data-driven means of identifying veterans at risk for suicide.

The solution combines the REACH-VET suicide prevention risk model with Guidehouse’s (in)Sight Health Catalyst, which uses publicly available social media data to identify cases of veterans who need immediate suicide intervention support. To help accelerate and amplify ML capabilities, Red Hat OpenShift AI provides the team with a fully supported environment to rapidly develop, train, and test models in a public cloud environment before deploying them into production.

The combined group was named one of 30 Mission Daybreak finalists and proceeded to the final round of Phase 2. As final round winners, the combined team will continue working with the VA to put the prototype solution into production.

Benefits:

  • Identified veterans in need  based on public data
  • Used AI/ML technologies to process vast volumes of data

Government customer success: Lockheed Martin

Lockheed Martin, a global security and aerospace company, collaborates with Red Hat to advance AI innovation at the edge. By adopting Red Hat Device Edge, Lockheed Martin can support U.S. national security by applying and standardizing AI technologies in geographically constrained environments.

Red Hat Device Edge delivers an enterprise-ready and supported distribution of MicroShift, a lightweight Kubernetes orchestration solution built from the edge capabilities of Red Hat OpenShift, along with an edge-optimized operating system built from Red Hat Enterprise Linux®.

Lockheed Martin used Red Hat Device Edge on an unmanned aerial system (UAS) to handle its AI workloads, which were previously too large and complex to manage. Once the UAS detected a simulated target, project engineers could update the software in-flight, allowing the UAS to deploy updated AI-based recognition capabilities. As a result, the UAS could more accurately classify military targets, providing more useful data and enhancing the situational awareness of the threat environment for U.S. military decision-makers.

Benefits:

  • Gained faster, data-backed decision-making
  • Improved accuracy for identification of military targets
  • Improved situational awareness of threat environments

Healthcare customer success: HCA Healthcare

HCA Healthcare, one of the largest healthcare service providers in the United States, uses data and technology to support modern healthcare. Its leadership identified sepsis rates as a challenge that data could help solve. Sepsis is a treatable condition that commonly affects hospital patients. Even short delays in diagnosis and treatment can greatly affect patient outcomes. Previously, nurses manually diagnosed sepsis in patients at HCA Healthcare’s hospitals, evaluating patients only every 12 hours. HCA Healthcare wanted to use ML models and algorithms to help nurses diagnose and treat sepsis faster and more effectively.

A cross-functional team of clinicians, data scientists, and technology professionals at HCA Healthcare used Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform and Red Hat Ansible® Automation Platform to create a real-time predictive analytics product, SPOT (Sepsis Prediction and Optimization of Therapy). SPOT collects and analyzes clinical data — like patient location, vital signs, and pharmacy and laboratory data — and signals caregivers in real time to initiate early sepsis care. With SPOT, the company can more accurately and rapidly detect sepsis, helping to save lives across more than 160 hospitals.

Benefits

  • Sped sepsis detection by up to 20 hours
  • Gained new insights using machine learning algorithms
  • Reduced risk and cost of innovation

Icon-Red_Hat-Media_and_documents-Quotemark_Open-B-Red-RGB About 80% of a patient chart is not computable. Working with great colleagues at Red Hat means we can use new tools like natural language processing and machine learning to develop new insights from that unstructured data.
