Mount Sinai receives Microsoft grant to support Covid-19 centre

By Chloe Kent

The Mount Sinai Health System in New York City has received an award from Microsoft AI for Health to support the work of a new data science centre dedicated to Covid-19 research.

The grant for the Mount Sinai COVID Informatics Center (MSCIC) will help fund the development of artificial intelligence (AI) tools that can enhance care and evidence-based medicine for Covid-19 patients. MSCIC will use Microsoft Azure cloud computing to provide researchers with access and storage for complex patient data from multiple sources, such as electronic health records and research studies.

MSCIC co-chair Dr Girish Nadkarni said: “Our work will help fuel research discoveries that help our patients in real time, as well as over time, as we assess the impact of Covid-19 on our health workers at Mount Sinai.”
