PredictionHealth

PredictionHealth has built a service that runs in a web browser on a doctor’s laptop. Doctors click start when they start talking to patients and we turn the audio into the summarized note that records their work and that they submit for payment. This saves them 2-hours per day and frees them up to focus on their patients.

We hope to eventually use this doctor-patient conversation dataset to help prevent doctors from making mistakes, deliver better more efficient patient-care, and later build an AI-doctor.

Please describe a potential intern's scope of work:

Roles span data science and programming (frontend and server-side) to sales and marketing depending on skills.

Data analysis / Data science:

There is a continual and significant influx of data on both clinician usage, human curation workflows, and patient care and outcomes data. We are a highly data driven company and data processing, organization, and visualization are key to business decisions and daily operations. Interns in this role would have the opportunity to process and evaluate datasets of significant value along with resource datasets used for machine learning model development and natural language processing tasks.

Software Developer (backend and/or frontend):

Opportunities for both frontend and backend development are available. Frontend development will revolve around designing and rapidly prototyping user features to address key business concerns along with efficiency metrics. Backend work will involve a scalable continuous integration / continuous development platform and various potential cloud services.

What characteristics/skills/previous experience are a must-have?


Data analysis / Data science:

Significant experience with scripting languages such as Python, databases e.g. SQL / MongoDB, machine learning (TensorFlow, PyTorch, or sklearn) and basic statistics. Good communication skills and the ability to rapidly execute end-to-end and iterate on partial solutions to improve them over time as necessary.

Software Developer (backend and/or frontend):

Significant experience in C-based languages (e.g. Golang, JavaScript, C++), scripting languages such as Python, and JavaScript based frameworks and/or Golang or other C-based languages. Good communication skills and the ability to rapidly execute end-to-end and iterate on partial solutions to improve them over time as necessary.

What characteristics/skills/previous experience are nice to have, but not required?

Previous healthcare experience (e.g. shadowing in medical clinics, scribing for medical professions, premedical courses, etc.) is desirable but not required. Additionally, experience with web development, QA/testing infrastructure, and git are valuable but promising candidates can be trained on the job.
