Dr. Winslow goes on to say, “MaineHealth is a flagship healthcare delivery network in Maine and Northern New England. Its member hospitals have nationally-recognized clinical faculty and dedicated caregivers with reach throughout the state. We envision a network of Smart Hospitals in which data science, defined in the broadest sense, is ubiquitous, informing physicians on the healthcare decisions they must make, informing caregivers on patient activities and needs, and contributing to the most positive and beneficial experience possible for patients.”
According to Senior Vice Provost for the Roux Institute, Michael Pollastri, “Recruiting Rai to the Roux Institute brings the formidable power of computational medicine to Maine, not just as an interesting research area of phenomenal academic interest, but one completely aligned with the needs of patients in Maine.” Pollastri adds, “As MaineHealth is dedicated to the health and well-being of Mainers, this is an enormously exciting collaborative opportunity that is completely synergistic.”
In addition to MaineHealth, several leading life science-based partners, including The Jackson Laboratory, and IDEXX, are exploring collaboration opportunities at the interface of data and life sciences with Drs. Winslow and Fayyad.
