Patients seeking new treatments for their conditions face a special problem: Their need is immediate, but the process for being admitted to a clinical trial is slow and complicated.

As the head of innovation at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, Dave Billiter set out to solve this problem with Deep Lens, a company he hopes will quickly and efficiently match patients and researchers using artificial intelligence.

In this episode of UpTech Report, Dave tells us his personal story that led to the creation of Deep Lens, and the special challenges of implementing technology into the workflow of healthcare professionals.
