Octave is dedicated to improving the journey of patients with neurodegenerative diseases, starting with multiple sclerosis (MS). We focus on MRI imaging analytics, molecular biomarker discovery, and discovering meaningful signals and patterns in clinical data from different sources such as patient sensors, web portals, mobile apps, and electronic medical records. Octave leverages this knowledge to surface clinical intelligence and provide concierge support to patients, their families, and clinical teams Octave's patient care program fills the gap between office visits by providing a comprehensive MS resource that is always by your side: real-time communication with an MS-certified nurse surrounded by a system of digital dashboards and a mobile application to track symptoms, medication adherence, and adverse events.
We are deliberate in our recruitment of amazing individuals because we recognize that combining both humans and technology (ie, human-tech) is integral in addressing the obvious and latent complexity found in health care challenges. The authors of this blog are established developers of clinical pathways, data scientist and engineers, biomedical researchers, neuroradiologists, and nurses.
David Hughes is the Principal Machine Learning Data Engineer for Octave Bioscience. He develops cloud-based architectures and solutions for surfacing clinical intelligence from complex medical data. He leverages his interest in graph based data and population analytics to support data science efforts. David is using his experience leading clinical pathways initiatives in oncology to facilitate stakeholder engagement in the development of pathways in neurodegenerative diseases. With Octave, he is building a data driven platform for improving patient experience, mitigating cost, and advancing health care delivery for patients and families.
