$100 Million for Cardiovascular Artificial Intelligence

The Peter Munk Cardiac Centre (PMCC) in Toronto, Canada has received a $100 million donation to optimize qualify of care and improve health outcomes for patients living with cardiovascular diseases.  SAB member and 1998 Wylie Scholar, Dr. Barry Rubin, is the Chair and Medical Director of PMCC at University Health Network.  The unprecedented donation will be invested largely in the Centre’s potentially revolutionary artificial intelligence platform.  “We could monitor a patient’s heart beat every second of the day,” said Dr. Rubin. “That system, using an AI-based protocol, could do things that no human could do, which is identify problems that may be on the horizon.”
