The algorithm, devised by scientists at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF), was described in a study titled “Embedding electronic health records onto a knowledge network recognizes prodromal features of multiple sclerosis and predicts diagnosis,” published in JAMIA. A growing body of research has shown that many people with MS…
